Wheel Loader Personal Simulator
The simulation software puts you at the controls of a modern wheel loader at work in a typical quarry, in interaction with a simulated Off-Highway Truck. Both stick-steering (as in large wheel loaders) and steering wheel steering (as in smaller ones) are available. You can even use the keyboard function keys and mouse controls during the simulation to change the point of view!
Simply set up the simulator controls, install the award-winning simulation software (in English, French, or Spanish) on your desktop or laptop PC, and begin!
Add a big screen display for "life size" graphics, and quality speakers for the audio feedback. Simlog even offers a vibration system to enhance the simulation experience. There are setup options to suit almost every budget.
There are eight "Simulation Modules" of increasing difficulty, starting with Controls Familiarization and ending with Loading with truck spotting. Key "Performance Indicators" measure how quickly and how carefully the simulated work is performed including execution time and the detection of "slams" that sound and are counted when the bucket is over-opened or over-closed. In this way, the feedback is diagnostic, instead of just a consolidated pass/fail score.
Simulation results are automatically saved, so trainees can progress at their own pace without trainer supervision. To simplify the record keeping, Simlog offers a database product called Simulation Manager, and the same database can be used with all of our Personal Simulators.
Many kinds of USB-ready simulator controls, and mounting configurations, are available:
- Replica Controls, featuring components suitable for table-top mounting
- Simlog's new Operator Chair, to obtain a superior simulation experience
- PC Controls, consisting of low cost off-the-shelf input devices, for easy transportability
- OEM Controls, with parts from the operator controls of real wheel loaders (for stick steering)
