The grader, also commonly referred to as a road grader, blade, maintainer, or motor grader, is a versatile piece of earth moving equipment used in the mining, civil engineering, farming and snow ploughing industries.
Typically the grader is used for final surface preparation, coming in to ‘polish’ the rough levelling performed by less specialised machines. Grader operator ‘touch’ is paramount in ensuring that machine and blade are perfectly co-ordinated to deliver a pristine surface. This requirement for absolute precision necessitates an extremely high level of grader operator training, and it is here that the CYBERMINE range of grader simulators delivers! Our latest state-of-the-art mining equipment simulator techniques will guarantee safe, productive grader operators of the highest calibre.
CYBERMINE grader simulators are delivered with a highly realistic, operating, 3D simulated mine world, complete with artificially intelligent automated equipment such as haul trucks, backhoe loaders and LDVs to support the grader operator training and evaluation process.
CYBERMINE Grader Simulator exercises may be uniquely configured to address almost any training requirement. Soil properties, traffic, weather conditions, visibility and time of day are adjusted at the click of a button, while a wide range of faults, failures and emergencies can be introduced to test even the most experienced grader operator.
The CYBERMINE Motor Grader Simulator equipment dynamics are mathematically modelled to provide accurate behavioural realism, while advanced soil interaction models allow the instructor to specify the grader’s cutting, camber, cant and inclination properties. Together this will require the motor grader operator to exercise correct propulsion, blade and scarifying techniques for the various terrain types and requirements in order to obtain optimum results.
The CYBERMINE Grader Simulator continually monitors and records grader operator actions and performance in terms of levelling accuracies, adherence to safety procedures, correct equipment handling techniques and responses to emergency situations and failures. The resultant performance reports together with the instructor’s after-action review capability provide a complete grader operator training and evaluation system.
Highly efficient and effective training is therefore realised on the CYBERMINE Grader Simulator with no loss of production and no danger of accidents, even in the most complex of emergency situations to which the grader operator might be expected to respond.
The CYBERMINE Grader Simulator is also commonly referred to as a road grader simulator, blade simulator, maintainer simulator, or motor grader simulator.
The CYBERMINE Grader Simulator range simulates heavy equipment from all major manufacturers such as Bell, Volvo, Caterpillar (CAT), John Deere, Terex, New Holland and Komatsu.
