The objective of this article is to validate a mobile platform of a ship-to-shore gantry crane simulator named ?Chameleon?. It can be used for both training and R & D activities. The simulator has been built to provide an environment for high performance training, but also for basic and applied research, analysing operator performance by means of medical instruments. The validation has been done comparing the vibration spectra recorded in the simulator platform with spectra recorded in a cabin floor of a true crane located in Cagliari Terminal Container port, measured during task executions.
