Why FFB in Simulations Does Not Work – By Leo Bodnar

Force Feedback guru Leo Bodnar has published a very interesting article on Google Docs, explaining while the Force Feedback simulation in current simulations using current wheels falls short of being realistic.

Leo is very much a man in the know, having designed both software and hardware Force Feedback solutions, including a popular plugin for rFactor.

In the article, Leo explains why the current FFB simulation can’t be solved by more powerful or more smooth wheels as the underlying approach how FFB is handled by the current hardware & software is fundamentally flawed.

It’s not all bad though as Leo does not just criticize but also points out a possible solution for improvement. If you´re into the topic of Force Feedback and sim racing physics, make sure to not miss out on his excellent article.

Artigo interessante.
Fiquei a perceber melhor a razão do FFB nunca me parecer real.

Resta saber se empresas como a Fanatec terão este documento em conta, em volantes futuros.

Este artigo vai sem duvida fazer "mexer" as aguas dos fabricantes de FFB e de Software.
Este senhor e conhecido e respeitado, este artigo tras algum impacto ao que ate agora se considerava simulacao de forcas reais no volante.
E nos nossos Bolsos tambem, pois nao tardara muito tempo ate novss dispositivos ffb de acordo com as recomendacoes deste artigo, e nao me parece que sejam baratos, estes servos e tal sao caros.
Esperemos para ver.

Será que este artigo terá alguma coisa a ver com isto?
