Effective haul truck operator training entrenches safety and optimises production tonnage. The haul truck and dump truck fleet is the life blood of surface mining operations and its safe and efficient operation is essential to mine profitability. CYBERMINE Haul Truck Simulators and Dump Truck Simulators are the perfect training tool for training operators of large off-highway haul trucks and dump trucks whilst promoting safety of operation and attaining consistently high levels of operator productivity by using state-of-the-art simulator training techniques.
The haul truck or dump truck simulator cab accurately replicates the interior of the actual vehicle. The student operates from a driver's seat, surrounded by instruments and controls positioned at ergonomically correct locations. The truck driver’s interface is accurate down to steering and braking systems, lights, horn, indicators, pedals and gauges.
CYBERMINE mine truck simulator systems are delivered standard with a highly realistic, operating, open pit simulated mine world in which to operate. This virtual, 3D simulated mine comes complete with artificially intelligent, simulated shovels, excavators, bulldozers, haul trucks and other support equipment, together with pit, dump and crusher areas. All simulated mine truck behavioural dynamics are based on detailed mathematical models that use original equipment manufacturer specifications to provide accurate behavioural realism. As a result, full loading, hauling, reversing and dumping capability is included with each haul truck and dump truck simulation.
CYBERMINE Haul Truck Simulator and Dump Truck Simulator exercises may be configured for various training options, including different loads, loading methods, weather conditions, night driving, sub-system failures and advanced emergency situations. All aspects of the truck driver’s loading, hauling and dumping operations are continuously monitored and recorded by the CYBERMINE Mine Truck Simulator system, including adherence to safety procedures, response to emergency situations and failures, driving techniques and productivity. These performance reports together with the instructor’s after-action-review capability provide a complete mine truck operator training and evaluation system.
Highly efficient and effective haul truck operator training is therefore realised on the CYBERMINE mine truck simulation system with no loss of production and no danger of accidents, even in the most complex of emergency situations.
The CYBERMINE Haul Truck Simulator and Dump Truck Simulator range simulates heavy equipment from all major manufacturers such as Caterpillar (CAT), Komatsu, Terex, Hitachi, Bucyrus, Liebherr and Volvo.
