In cooperation with the University of Agder, Christian Michelsen Research has established a mobile 6DOF hexapod platform solution for performing motion tests and measurements, as extension to the existing Motion Lab facilities at UiA in Grimstad.
Example application areas include inertial measurement unit certification, ultrasonic and lidar anemometer verification, maritime landing and personnel transfer gear, and motion compensated crane validation.
The platform is mounted on a car trailer, and an integrated diesel power aggregate secures operation independent from test site infrastructure. Motion patterns are fully configurable via pattern generator tools, UDP streaming or playback of recorded motions, e.g. from wave sensors.
The platform has a payload capacity of 1500 kg. For key performance specifications see motionlab-flyer-2017
Mobile Motion Lab is funded by a national research infrastructure grant from the Research Council of Norway. The platform will be available for rent to both academic organizations and industrial parties from August 2017, after system integration and testing has been completed.
