Harvester Personal Simulator
The simulation software puts you at the controls of a typical tracked carrier (swing machine) equipped with an articulated boom and free-swinging "dangle-type" harvester head. You can even change the viewpoint during the simulation at the touch of a button.
Simply set up the simulator controls, install the simulation software (in English or French) 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. Later Simulation Modules feature directional felling, processing stems at the roadside, and finally selective thinning. Key "Performance Indicators" measure how quickly and how carefully the simulated work is performed, including execution time, stump height, felling accuracy, and decking accuracy. 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
