I want calculate 6dof axis to move a motion platform simulation.

Anyone knows anythink about this?

Currently, I read some values from vehicle, but not about phisics.

Basically you have to read continuously the translations and rotations from object, be it the vehicle itself or the driver's seat.
The rest is physics and a lot math to calculate acceleration forces.
Google for "6dof calculation" to get more info.

Ok, Currently i have this mod that export the telemetry, so, i will just include more data.

I will register here my discoverys and steps, just to be more clear.

The first step will be get this values:

--Roll = in degrees - (-180 to 180) - Z axis
--Pitch = in degrees - (-180 to 180) - X axis
--Yaw = in degrees - (-180 to 180) - Y axis

I think they are the local rotation of vehicle, so the "getRotation(vehicle.rootNode)" will do the work, but i need to convert to degrees.

I will test this and report the results soon as possible.
