Simulators with motion systems are used to give the driver a motion feedback. The type of the motion system and its related motion envelope is a major factor for the ability to present certain motion cues. This paper describes algorithms for three types of motion systems with the focus on a new algorithm for 8-degree-of-freedom systems. As new features compared to other algorithms for this type of motion system consequent complementary splitting into low-, mid-, and high-frequent signals and cross-system washout compensation are introduced. Parameter tuning effects according to washout and signal splitting filter frequency variations are shown and analyzed.
