Optical flow demo

This Java-based demo illustrates how splay and density (or compression) lines, in combination with altitude and speed, influence the perception of depth, altitude, and egomotion. The theory behind this demo is described in Christopher Wickens’ book “Engineering Psychology and Human Performance”.

About us

Our research concentrates on establishing a rational and systematic framework for physics-based modelling and simulation at rotorcraft applicable to the practices and processes involved in flight dynamics modelling, flight simulator development and handling qualities.The models we develop are according to the application considered and to the required level of fidelity.
