To generate the orientation and position of the rig.

Pose for what?

Mover can calculate actuators position in two ways,

Directly, where you kind of preview the amount of position you want on it, by using the direct modules.

Indirectly, by using the rig modules, that receive the pose and calculate the actuators position needed to achieve that pose.

So, pose is the pretended orientation and position of the rig.

Orientation given by yaw, pitch and roll (rotations in this order).

Position given by sway, surge and heave (linear).

The linear movements are made after the rotations.

If we want to feel sway, we have to make sway laterally relative to the user orientation.

So now you know the objective of the pose module. It's to calculate the orientation and position sent to the rig modules.

Remind, that not all rigs can move in all degrees of freedom.

Rig with a pose.

Pose module

The pose module, is where you generate the pretended pose from selected values.

In general, that module is composed by 3 areas:

  • In the right, the sources from where we get the values.
    Select more than one and their values are added.
    For example, if you add two sources in the same pose, the two sway accelerations are added and that value is the one used in the calculations.

  • Bellow area, shows the resulting pose.

  • The main area, is where you define the way the values are treated to generate the pose.
    This area depends on the type of pose module in use.

Mover has the following pose modules:

The pose window

Calculate the desired pose of a rig.

Simplified version of the above. Limited in filters, but more visual.

Calculate one degree of freedom for a pose to use in the rig.

Simplified version of the above. Limited in filters, but more visual.

Generates a pose from suspension info. Usually I use it for high frequencies vibration.

Generate a vibrating pose based on RPM.

Generates a noise pose from a selected value.

Join two or more poses

You can have more than one pose in Mover and add them in the rigs.

A good example is to use the pose from suspension and a pose from motion in the rig.

One is a the pose generated by the road surface details, the other a more general pose given by the forces felt on accelerations and cornering of the car.

Or another example with planes, is to use one pose for general motion and another one to generate noise from stall.
