This paper describes the conceptual development of a motion base for a driving simulator at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). The motion platform is designed based on 6 DOF Stewart platform design configuration. An inverse kinematics model for determination of Stewart Platform leg length is developed using MATLAB Simulink. A visualisation tool (SimMechanics) is used to validate the motion platform motions cues and investigate the performance of the inverse kinematic model. The SimMechanics model is capable of displaying visual and numerical result of the developed inverse kinematics model. The motion platform operation algorithm in UTM is also presented in this paper.
