A Gough-Stewart platform is a type of parallel robot with six Degree Of Freedom (6DOF). Stewart proposed the use of the platform for flight simulators. Unity Stewart Motion Platform 6-6

**What does Six Degrees of Freedom (6DOF) mean ?**

Six degrees of freedom refers to the freedom of movement of a rigid body in three-dimensional space.

Translation – Moving along the different axes X, Y, Z

- HEAVE - Moving up and down along the Y axis
- SURGE - Moving forwards and backwards along the X axis
- SWAY - Moving left and right along the Z axis

Rotation - Turning in order to face a different axis:

- PITCH - Moving between X and Y
- YAW - Moving between X and Z
- ROLL - Moving between Z and Y
