    Hello,

    We are a project team of the Rudolf-Diesel-technical college in Nuremberg Germany. Right now we are in the third of four semesters to become a state certified technician (also known as Bachelor of Mechatronics).
    In our project we are building simulator for racing games. Our tasks are planning, documenting, assembling and commissioning of it. The simulator is going to be presented at many different events.

    We want to show you our Project and We would appreciate help.

    This is our CAD construction.
    3D Model Neu Dimetrisch.png
    There are two elements the mainframe and the upper element.
    We want to build a 2 DOF system with two linear actors that are attached under the upper element.



    and this is our current status.

    We still need the actors and a controller for them.
    if anybody got a idea for us it would be great!
    i will update this Thread every week from now on.

    Thanks for your answer

    we choose a dc gearmotor with a
    maximum torque value from: 30 Nm
    maximum Current: 26A
    maximum performance: 80W
    free-wheel speed: 180 rpm
    runnable voltage 0-24V
    nominal voltage 24V
    reduction ratio 20:1

    and a Sabertooth 2X12

    As you can see on the pictures, we builded on a holding unit for the steering wheel. Also we mounted the steering wheel on it and mounted the pedals on the upper unit.
