PC simulator training system

The first-ever hydraulic excavator simulator was recently released for personal computers. Two years in the development, Simlog’s Hydraulic Excavator Personal Simulator is designed to help companies teach new employees, or hone the skills of existing operators, without taking an excavator off the job – or putting the excavator in the hands of someone with little or no experience. It was developed in conjunction with Caterpillar and has formed the basis of that company’s Virtual Training Systems line.

Along the way, the program gathers results for the trainee that can be reviewed on the spot or kept for later use. Either way, the familiarity gained by the operator on the system can then easily be transferred to the actual machine, making for a safer and faster transition that’s easier on the operator and the iron.
