AbstractSignals are developed representative of the mechanical inertia of a vehicle simulator linkage elements that drive control members utilized by a student operator. These signals are combined with signals representative of programmed vehicle operating data and signals representative of the student operator's mechanical input such that the mechanical inertia of the simulator linkage elements does not influence the signal which causes the actual operator control member to have an appropriate force/"feel".
