This test, aided by the Motion Capture system, will provide the following data: Angle at the moment of Major Anterior Oscillation (MAO); Angle at the moment of Major Posterior Oscillation (MPO); Angle at the moment of Major lateral Oscillation to the Right (MOR); Angle at the moment of Major lateral Oscillation to the Left (MOL).
The speed and lateral oscillation of the balls were maintained unchanged throughout the test.
The speed that was maintained during the test corresponded to the control number 4 and lateral oscillation of the balls was also maintained constant in every specific test.
For the horizontal interaction associated with probing sidewalls, the lateral oscillation of the beam enables the probe tip to snap out of the surface in case it snaps on to the surface.
ISVR researchers have quantified the ways in which motion sickness is linked to the characteristics of low-frequency motion (fore and aft oscillation, lateral oscillation, pitch oscillation, roll oscillation, and combinations of these).
If this is true for the "vigorous" approach (fast rotation of fore legs and wide bending of the abdomen), a different effect comes from the "shy" approach, where the body is still or slowly moving towards the female and the weak and slow lateral oscillation of the fore legs is the converse of startling (deimatic).
It complements such features introduced last year as the cross-sectional frame hardening that eliminates lateral oscillations that normally occur at high operating speeds; toothed belts instead of metal chains for higher speed and efficiency, lower maintenance and noise; and built-in 'upgradability' via installation of different types of belt drives.
When the rod has a negligible bending rigidity, lateral oscillations driven by thermal fluctuations have a local character, which implies that slippage of a chain end from a Junction is induced by random excitations occurring (rather sparsely) in the close vicinity of this end.
