2. Identify the conditions for which some passenger experience motion nausea and search for conditions which maximise performance and avoid nausea.
3. Produce a verified simulation tool eliminating the need for full scale tests.
4. Define economical designs of track/coach for performance and comfort levels.
5. Reduce the introduction time needed for new rolling stock for all track types.
6. Maximise performance of a tilting train for a given configuration of track and coach design.
