Our Motion Simulation Lab is home to a range of mobile and industrial robots. We have developed the haptically enabled Universal Motion Simulator (UMS), which represents the next generation of vehicle simulation. Motion simulation is a vast arena of innovation that can be used to make life-altering changes across the world.
Systems modelling and simulation
IISRI’s modelling and simulation research encompasses simulation and data visualisation, complex systems, and decision making under uncertainty. IISRI has the largest team of researchers working in the field of systems modelling and simulation in Australia. They have extensive experience in the application of discrete event simulation, systems dynamics, agent-based modelling and conceptual modelling of complex systems. Our researchers also adapt techniques from external fields to assist with the modelling process, research platform tools and technology.
Human performance and cognition
IISRI researchers have developed a number of capabilities that allow interactions with the brain to characterise cognition and state of mind. These range from analysing single cell dynamics in the brain to monitoring the physiological behaviour of individuals. Our research explores the capabilities to interact with the brain at neuron cell level, for example responses to stimuli such as drugs. In other work, we analyse the characterisation of general state of mind in terms of situational awareness, attention and involving methods such as EEG and eye tracking technologies.

As well as our five main streams of current research, we are also investigating and researching myriad other fascinating areas within these streams that will have impacts across a range of industries.
