Morgan Sindall Construction has celebrated handing over the brand new engineering building that will house the University of Exeter’s pioneering VSimulators experimental facility. The bespoke building will host an array of cutting-edge facilities for the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, including VSimulators - a multi-disciplinary research platform funded by a GBP 4.8 million grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

VSimulators offers a state-of-the-art, world class facility, combining virtual reality technology capable of immersing up to nine occupants simultaneously in headset-projected VR scenarios. A 4x4 metre, custom designed motion platform, linked to the VR scenarios, enables users to perceive realistic motion as they move around in a virtual world, while optical and inertial motion capture systems and an array of force plates will record their experiences.

Due to open in May, VSimulators will be used by academics and industry to support multi-disciplinary human factors research and innovation.
