2Armored VehiclesVery expensive pieces of equipmentPilots cannot always be trained in the fieldNeed for simulators to help train driversThere are MANY types of vehicles; hence MANY different simulatorsBackground

3Project ScopeDesign a generic simulator handleReduce WeightMake handle interchangeable

4DesignAspectsTwo shafts = roll and pitchAccelerometer for roll and pitch sensingTop and back detachableRibbed for supportCenter Body

5Center Body6Handle bar and ball bearings allow for pitch rotation

Center bar and ball bearings allow for yaw rotation

PitchRollHandlesDetachable handles from a Generic center bodyHandles can be removed from the center bodyHandles customized to a different vehicle
