CM Labs technology allows operators to complete collaborative tasks on same virtual jobsite
New feature prepares operators for the teamwork requirements of a real worksite
With the launch of a new crew training exercise that focuses on earthmoving equipment, CM Labs has added to its roster of collaborative learning options. The exercise enables an excavator operator to learn how to safely and efficiently fill an articulated dump truck, while another trainee learns how to operate the truck, interact with the excavator, and drive on various types of terrain.
While two operators are training within the same environment, another can provide guidance from CM Labs' unique Signalperson Training Station. To round out the team, a fourth trainee can work from an Instructor Operating Station to monitor and direct operations. CM Labs' simulators track all operating metrics during the collaborative training exercise, and roll them up into a single score for the team, which updates in real time.
CM Labs' catalogue of crew training capabilities also includes the industry's only simulation-based tandem lift exercises for mobile crane and crawler crane.
This type of collaborative training can be difficult and dangerous to reproduce with real equipment, especially for new trainees, due to the potentially hazardous interactions between equipment and personnel.
In helping to develop communication skills between operators and other personnel on the worksite, CM Labs' crew training capability enables organizations to graduate operators that are better prepared for real-world productivity.
