Simulators are a unique way of replicating any real world scenario. It gives one the opportunity to be in a place virtually without being present there physically. The motivation behind making this simulator was to replicate real world terrains and make a human walk in that environment. The basic application which acted as motivation was training people like soldiers, sportspersons and others on various terrains. Control of a prototype is reported in this paper. The prototype is an omnidirectional walking simulator that allows one to walk on it to get the feeling of walking on a horizontal levelled plane in any direction.
