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 table control allowed for speed adjustment for the ball, ball frequency, and lateral oscillation
, with units that vary from 1 to 9.
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).
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.
Looking at the amplitude and frequency of the movements, it is possible to recognize two behavioral patterns in the male approach: the first is "shy", hesitant with slow movements of the fore legs (lateral oscillations
), sometimes with moderate lifting of the abdomen.
