The Next Level Racing® Motion Platform V3 is designed and engineered to be the most advanced professional consumer platform on the market and based on feedback and performance  we are certain it can outperform professional platforms far greater in price. The Next Level Racing Motion Platform is a product forged from years of simulation expertise combined with world leading motion and software engineers that provide professional platforms for even military applications. The Next Level Racing® Motion Platform V3 is a professional grade motion platform and our platforms are not only used by sim racers from around the world but also leading universities globally, defence force, training institutions and professional drivers/pilots. The same platform you can put in your home for incredible immersion is also used for advanced professional applications.

The Next Level Racing® Motion Platform is designed and engineered specifically just for the seat to move to give the most realistic immersion with the mind and body. With this design and engineering it’s tested and proven to feel the g-forces more effectively through muscle pressures that you wouldn’t feel if the wheel and pedals moved at the same time. This pressure applied to your body and muscles can more realistically replicate and sustain the same g-forces as a real car and this method of only the seat moving is not only used by professional race car drivers for training but also on some of the world’s most advanced and high end motion simulators including CXC Simulations©.

platformmanager

The platform comes complete with Next Level Racing® Platform Manager Software.  This is professional and specialised software for the platform and is click and play compatible with all major racing and flight titles on PC and constantly update to support new titles as they are released. The Platform Manager is a powerful engine yet simple to use meaning you can adjust levels of motion, bumps, roll and pitch with a click of a button. The Next Level Racing® Motion Platform is designed for ease of use with little to no technical support required for assembly and operation meaning you can install the platform yourself with ease and be up and racing/flying with complete motion in less than an hour.

Progression from the V1 to V3 

We continued our development, innovation and technology to ensure the V3 will exceed user expectation and continue leading the market in design and performance

  • Precision - Updated encoders to provide even further accuracy
  • External Design - Completely revised in terms of appearance to accommodate for internal power supply and internal micro controller. V3 is now in Stealth Black with laser cut logos
  • Cooling - Passive and active cooling method with adaptive fan speed control to ensure the platform can even be used for more demanding purposes such as commercial centers and events whilst not overheating
  • Robust - The V2 was known to be a “bulletproof” kind of product however USB filters and mounting design for springs have been improved further
  • Speed – V3 max speed is 200% faster than V1
  • Tactile Feedback – Vibration features simulating road bumps, road texture, engine vibrations, gear changes, collisions, rubs & bumps. We use in game telemetry data delivering true and accurate feedback
  • Noise – We are confident the V3 is the quietest motion platform on the market. The V3 now has acoustical panels inside to reduce noise of operation even lower than the V1 and V2
  • Electromagnetic Motor Shaft Brakes - Usually only used in high fidelity and high cost commercial motion platforms this feature prevents any undesired movement of the seat if the platform is switched off

Events, VR & Commercial applications

The Next Level Racing® Motion Platform is robust product that is also suitable for commercial use and we provide 1 year warranty for commercial customers.

SDK

Our advanced API allows to integrate our software with 3rd party applications like games or simulators. SDK is available at an extra cost allowing 3rd party software integration and adding motion to Virtual Reality projects. For more info please contact us

The following languages are supported out of the box: C, C++, C#. The C# API is compatible with Unity. It is also possible to use Unreal 3D engine.

Motion Theatre Software

Motion theater software available at an additional charge allowing you to watch videos and then map movements with a controller for the motion platform that are then saved. Once the movements are saved every time the video is played the motion will react and move in the exact same manner as saved. This is also great when running multiple platforms at the same time as they will all move together.

Multi Platform Mode

The Next Level Racing(R) Software allows you to connect multiple platforms to the same PC meaning that you can have multiple platforms moving and behaving in the exact same manner at the same time. This is great for example having a passenger's seat or having multiple people experiencing the same motion experience with simulation, rollercoaster titles, videos etc.
