Entity motion management in complex simulation environments using image generators

Çiflikli, Burak
Image generator host is the interface of the host computer systemof a flight simulator to its image generator. Image generator host, updates positions of the entities by sending operational codes to the image generator. Positional data of the entities is pipelined by tactic interface of the simulator at host update rate. A network jitter, latency, packet loss or inadequate bandwidth may disturb the smoothness of this pipelined entity information packets. This study presents an algorithm for the host system of a flight simulator, intending to minimize model flickering in the image generator display output.
