Recently UiA and CMR received funding from NFR for an outdoor transportable motion platform which allows for testing at research partner sites.
This equipment is intended for sensor testing (e.g. LIDARs) onshore or offshore, and for testing heavy or large equipment at the costumer’s site. The Mobile Motion Lab platform will be operated by CMR and based in Bergen and is part of the Norwegian Motion Laboratory.
We have now completed the vendor selection, and a purchase order has been issued for an E-motion 1500 system from Bosch-Rexrot customized for outdoor applications. This system has a payload capacity of 1500kg and actuator stroke of 650mm, and will be mounted on a trailer with extendable stabilization legs and diesel powered aggregates to enable independent field operations. Technical details and functional specifications may be found here: https://www.boschrexroth.com/en/xc/industries/machinery-applications-and-engineering/motion-simulation-technology/products-and-solutions/6dof-motion-platform/emotion-1500/index
Delivery is expected by the beginning of 2017, and we aim to complete system integration and have the Mobile Motion Lab operational and field deployable by Q2 2017.
Benny Svardal, CMR, is project manager.
