Construction Articulated Dump Truck Simulators
The safety and productivity of a construction site is closely linked to the performance of its ADT operators.
For the past several decades, articulated dump trucks (ADTs) have been used to profitably carry heavy loads fast over rough terrain in construction environments. It is a known fact that poor driver skills and habits can have a significant impact on safety and productivity in ADT operations.
The CYBERQUIP range of construction ADT simulators is designed to provide an excellent ADT operator training and refresher tool for operators in the construction industry without removing productive vehicles from the operations cycle. Without doubt, skilled ADT operators increase productivity, lower operating costs and significantly reduce safety violations.
Accurate Vehicle Replication
Simulated Articulated Dump Truck behavioural dynamics are based on detailed mathematical models that use equipment manufacturer specifications to provide accurate realism. As a result, full loading, hauling, reversing and dumping capability is included with each CYBERQUIP Articulated Dump Truck Simulator.
Virtual Construction World
The CYBERQUIP Articulated Dump truck Simulator immerses the operator in a highly realistic, 3D construction world which is projected on three wide screen displays located about the operator’s cab. The 3D construction world includes automated excavators, bulldozers, loaders and other such equipment in support of the ADT operator training and evaluation process.
Training and Evaluation Tools
CYBERQUIP ADT simulation exercises may be configured to address various ADT operator training requirements, including weather conditions, other automated entities, low visibility and night operations, subsystem failures and advanced emergency situations.
The CYBERQUIP ADT Simulator continually monitors construction operator performance, recording cycle times, processed tonnage, adherence to safety procedures, correct equipment handling techniques and response to emergency situations and failures. The resultant performance reports together with the instructor’s after-action-review facility provide a complete ADT operator training and evaluation system.
Highly efficient and effective training is therefore realised on the Articulated Dump Truck simulator with no loss of production and no danger of accidents, even in the most complex of emergency situations to which the ADT operator might be expected to respond
