This example shows visualization of a simple plane take-off model. The aircraft model represents a simplified shape of Jaguar fighter.

There are several viewpoints defined in this model, both static and attached to the plane, allowing the user to see the take-off from various perspectives.

  • Viewpoint 1 - Whole Trajectory
  • Viewpoint 2 - Observe Plane
  • Airport
  • Observer at Runway
  • Ride on the Plane

In addition to the example included in the product, in this example there is also sound added. Control tower and fighter jet emit each different noise. When the user navigates around the virtual world and as the plane takes off, the sound varies accordingly and creates realistic spatial impression.

System Requirements

  • MATLAB 6.1 or higher
  • Simulink 4.1 or higher
  • Virtual Reality Toolbox 2.0 or higher
  • Computer with hardware 3D graphics support
  • Computer with multimedia capability to enjoy the sound
