CeRVIM Webinar: Design, Analysis and Preliminary Validation of a 3-DOF Rotational Inertia Generator


This presentation investigates the design of a three-degree-of-freedom rotational inertia generator using the gyroscopic effect to provide ungrounded torque feedback. It uses a rotating mass in order to influence the torques needed to move the device, creating a perceived inertia. The general working of the device is presented, along with a comparable concept using three flywheels instead of a gyroscope. Simulations are conducted to establish motor torque and velocity requirements, and the gyroscopic concept is identified as having the less demanding requirements. Preliminary experimental validations are conducted, confirming that it is possible to both reduce and increase the rendered inertia.

The presentation will be given in French and the slides will be in English.
