Abstract/Summary This paper describes a series of experiments addressing questions related to the design of underground coal bolting machine controls. The ecological validity of the experiments increased from the movement of an arbitrary device within a virtual environment, albeit connected with physical controls, through a hydraulically operated physical simulation of a specific bolting machine, to a real bolting machine within a physical simulation of an underground mine. Collectively, the results of the experiments illustrate the potential role for virtual and physical simulation in achieving human-centred design of mining equipment.
