At the heart of each CYBERQUIP Construction Simulator is the simulated cab, a highly realistic replica of the actual construction equipment, with fully functional simulated instruments and controls. The replicated cab is optionally mounted on a motion platform capable of imparting up to six degrees of freedom and is surrounded by a wide field of view, high-resolution projection display system with surround sound audio. Control of all aspects of training and evaluation is exercised in real time from a feature rich instructor station. The entire construction simulator system is housed in a well-appointed, self-contained ISO standard container, which also facilitates ease of transport. CYBERQUIP Construction Simulators offer a controlled environment which is highly conducive to professional construction equipment operator training, re-training and evaluation.
Each CYBERQUIP Construction Equipment Simulator provides training and facilitates objective evaluation in the following areas:
• Training and evaluating novices in the proficient operation of construction equipment
• Providing a new-recruit screening system
• Providing effective refresher training for experienced construction equipment operators
• Instilling the theory and practical aspects of economical machine operation
• Providing training in emergency situations not possible on the real construction equipment
• Entrenching safety procedures
Operators are logged onto the CYBERQUIP Construction Simulator using a unique password. As the operator controls the construction equipment, all aspects of operation are electronically monitored and digitally presented, including adherence to operating and safety procedures and student’s economic performance. Exercise results are stored in a comprehensive database for viewing and printing by the instructor. The entire construction operator training exercise is recorded for after-action-review.
These versatile CYBERQUIP Earth Moving Simulators are supplied standard with a highly realistic, virtual construction world based on real construction sites, completely immersing the operator in a highly accurate training environment. Instruments and controls are either sourced from original equipment manufacturers or accurately replicated to function as they do in the real construction equipment. The operation of sub-systems such as engines, braking systems and hydraulics is mathematically modelled to original equipment manufacturer specifications so as to provide accurate, realistic feedback to the student. Other simulated construction vehicles interoperate with the student to test and enhance his skill levels. Accurate 3D surround sound reproduction and composite visual effects such as reflections, dust, rain and shadows complete the picture to ensure a high fidelity construction operator training experience.
The CYBERQUIP Construction Simulator range can simulate earth moving equipment from all major manufacturers such as Caterpillar (CAT), Komatsu, Terex, Case Construction, John Deere, JCB, Hitachi, Volvo, Liebherr, New Holland and Bell.
