The W3s 6DOF Motion System

This is the world's first small scale personal 6 degree of freedom (6DOF) Motion Platform or Motion System - the W3s, specifically directed at very low cost small scale high fidelity motion simulator applications, such as commercial simulators, next generation consumer coin-operated arcade entertainment simulators, home built high fidelity flight simulators or home built high fidelity racing entertainment simulators  

The W3s 6DOF Motion System (pictured above - computer shown for size comparison only) features a mere 200kg total weight, 1160mm total width, and sits only 360mm high, therefore eliminating the need for any specialised stair or gangway for stepping up onto it. ESI has used the knowledge it has developed for the heavier motion systems to design this unit, incorporating industry leading electronics, encoders and actuators. The expected life of the W3s is extremely high for its price point, and the maintenance requirements are minimal, especially important in commercial or consumer based applications.  The target market of the W3s 6DOF Motion System can be any of the following single seater applications:


  • • Small Scale Compact High Fidelity Flight Training Devices for Commercial and Military applications
  • • Small Scale High Fidelity Commercial Vehicle and Truck Driver Training Simulators
  • • Small Scale High Fidelity Mining Equipment Simulators and Heavy Earth Moving Equipment Simulators
  • • Small Scale High Fidelity Train Driver Simulators
  • • Next Generation Unsupervised Coin-operated Motion Simulator Arcade Machines
  • • Home Built High Fidelity Flight Simulators
  • • Home Built High Fidelity Car Racing Simulators

W3s Motion Platform (ready to use) - (W3sMP)

Ideal for OEM manufacturers of existing simulator products or home builders who are looking for a cost effective method to instantly add full high fidelity motion to an existing or new design. This unit is pre-built to ESI standards, and is USB plug and play straight out of the box. The only assembly required is to bolt on whatever goes on top of the motion system. This unit comes with a 1 year faulty part return to base warranty (does not cover wear and tear)
