Simulation Hub

Simulation Hub

Driving innovation in human performance research

The Macquarie University Simulation Hub draws together a range of simulation devices into one location, enabling leading experts from the University and the industry to collaborate on translational research across a wide-range of disciplines.

World's first and only

The first and only facility of its type in the world, the hub enables concurrent research in human performance, from driving, music to sports, all in one place.
