Cesys Showcases Highly Realistic Motorcycle Simulator

Cesys (Booth #2065) introduced a cutting-edge Motorbike Simulator that offers several advantages. First, the Cesys simulator uses real Yamaha motorcycles. Not only do the controls, such as the throttle and brakes, really function, they manipulate the ride and affect the simulation. Further, Cesys recorded the sounds of actual Yamaha motorcycles in action and incorporated them into the simulator.

“Using real motorcycles positively affects the [realism] of the experience,” said Reinder Holtkamp, general manager of Cesys. “Also, since the leaning of the rider left and right actually affects the steering of motorcycles, we have sensors that detect leaning and [adjust] the motion response, and that affects what the rider sees in the headset.”

The Motorbike Simulator uses a high-end combination of steering-force feedback through the handle bars and body tracking technology in which multiple cameras monitor the rider’s position relative to the motorbike, as Holtkamp noted. Cesys has two working Motorcycle Simulators operating in its booth.
