ABSTRACT
The paper presents an inverse kinematic model for a centrifuge motion simulator used to verify newly defined absolute acceleration profiles. The modelling is concerned with a human training centrifuge with three degrees of freedom. The values of kinematic parameters have been obtained for this three-jointed manipulator. Validation of the developed model has been performed by comparing the results obtained from the centrifuge motion simulator with the results of numerical simulations. The simulation revealed that the inverse kinematic model enabled calculation of the angular displacement, velocity and acceleration of the links that are needed for the given linear acceleration of the simulator cabin.
