Construction Backhoe Loader Simulators
The versatile nature of backhoe loaders means that it’s vital to operate safely and efficiently at all times.
The backhoe loader is widely regarded as the world’s most versatile piece of earth moving equipment. This “jack-of-all-trades” is used extensively in the construction, mining, and civil sectors. Its low operating cost, versatility and productivity offer an ideal solution where traditionally only time intensive manual labour would have sufficed.
The work rate of the backhoe loader is high, with a corresponding burden on construction operators. Backhoe loader operators are required to exercise a high degree of precision and concentration as they manoeuvre over difficult terrain and operate in confined spaces, often in close proximity to manual labourers.
Accurate Vehicle Replication
All simulated backhoe loader behavioural dynamics are based on detailed mathematical models that use equipment manufacturer specifications to provide accurate behavioural realism. CYBERQUIP advanced soil interaction models allow the instructor to specify soil properties, requiring the backhoe loader operator to exercise correct digging techniques for the local terrain type in order to obtain efficient results.
Virtual Construction World
The CYBERQUIP TLB Simulator operator is immersed in a highly realistic, construction based 3D virtual world, projected on three wide screen displays located about the operator’s cab. The 3D construction world includes automated ADTs, bulldozers, loaders and other such equipment in support of the backhoe loader operator training and evaluation process.
Training and Evaluation Tools
CYBERQUIP Backhoe Loader Simulator exercises may be tailored to address a wide range of training requirements, including operations with different soil types, varied times of day and weather conditions, as well as artificially intelligent vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Furthermore, dangerous sub-system failures and advanced emergency situations are carefully modelled to test even the most seasoned operator.
The CYBERQUIP Backhoe Loader Simulator continually monitors and records operator actions and performance. The resultant performance reports together with the instructor’s after-action review capability provide a complete backhoe loader training and evaluation system.
Highly efficient and effective training is therefore realised on the TLB simulator with no loss of production and no danger of accidents, even in the most complex of emergency situations.
