Abstract : A three axis motion simulator is modeled as a robotic manipulator. The equations of motion are derived and the terms due to Coriolis are quantified. Two optimization algorithms are presented to minimize the Coriolis produced in the simulator at the end effector. It is shown with minimal reduction of motion fidelity, that over 65 percent of Coriolis can be reduced with proper input commands to modify the motion field produced. When this reduction of Coriolis is realized, the motion fidelity is only compromised about 5 percent which may not be perceivable by the human subjects that participate in the human runs in the mechanical system considered herein.
