The simulation of motion effects adds another dimension to the simulation process, thus significantly enhancing its authenticity. This paper describes the simulation of motion effects via a hydraulic base with six degrees of freedom. It provides a kinematic description of the hydraulic base and explains the motion effect controlling concept. We shall also present an actual implementation of the concept discussed herein which is used as an IFV simulator by the armed forces of the Czech Republic.
