Rate limited active pilot inceptor system and method

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #8002220.

A variable rate limit is implemented in an active inceptor haptic feedback control system. The rate limit is modulated based on a rate error between an aircraft rate command supplied from the active inceptor, and actual aircraft rate. As the rate error increases, the rate limit is reduced, which limits inceptor movement and provides haptic feedback to a user when the rate error is exceeded.
