Dump Truck simulator

TecknoSIM Dump Truck Simulator is an advanced tool to train and test dumper drivers on driving a heavy haul truck in a typical mine site. Simulator is based on the actual equipment controls and replicates the machine dynamics perfectly. New operators get familiarized with the vehicle and learn basic operating techniques on a simulator before they operate the actual equipment. Advanced operators show improvements in hazard avoidance operator productivity, fuel efficiency, unscheduled maintenance and overall safety levels. With TecknoSIM simulator, clients can be assured that their equipment is not taken out of production for training which directly helps in increasing productivity.

Virtual Mine Environment

Virtual Mine Environment

TecknoSIM Dumper Truck Simulators are delivered with a highly realistic, virtual mine sites, complete with artificially intelligent equipments such as haul trucks, shovels, dozers, loaders, tippers and light vehicles to support the operator training and evaluation process. Real-time weather like rain, snow, fog, dust and daylight conditions add to the realism. Artificially intelligent traffic in the virtual mine site helps operator practice in normal and risky conditions before operating the actual machine. Customized mine sites can be developed for clients which simulate actual mine sites of clients including roads, pits, loading areas, crusher sites, parking areas and other details

Training Modules

Training modules are progressive and contain a larger number of work scenarios, suited for both, new and experienced operators. Simulator is designed to train operators under multiple scenarios. Operators learn how to handle the vehicle from basic maneuvering to full operation in rough conditions. Real time change in weather like rain, fog, dust and night time conditions add to the realism. Operators are trained and evaluated under all aspects of loading, positioning, dumping and hauling. Training modules offer a wide range of scenarios including:

Training Modules

  • Start up and Shutdown procedure
  • Control Familarization
  • Manuevering
  • Driving on gradients
  • Loading
  • Hauling
  • Dumping

*Customized training modules are developed as per client requirement in multiple languages.

Testing and Evaluation

The operators are automatically evaluated in real time by the simulator on their skill, safety and productivity levels. The simulator generates a detailed evaluation report for each operator at the end of the scenario. The record and replay feature allows the instructor to replay the scenario and train the operators on their mistakes.

Instructor Software

The instructor software is designed to enable the instructor to register each operator and plan the training. The software allows the instructor to set different training scenarios, inject faults and change environmental conditions, vastly improving trainer efficiency. The instructor can track and print trainees performance.

Group Training

Multiple simulators are interconnected to a single instructor to allow for training operators in a group. This allows a single trainer to manage multiple simulators simultaneously. It’s a cost effective method for training a large number of operators at the same time through a single instructor.

Hardware Features

Operating Station

Operating Station

Operator station of TecknoSIM Dumper simulator is a replica of an actual Dump Truck. The interior of the cab including the seat, steering and braking systems, lights, horn, indicators, pedals and gauges, instruments and controls are placed in ergonomically correct locations and operate in the same way as seen in the actual equipment. It’s a fully functional pre-configured simulator that contains all necessary hardware and software modules, visual system, visual database and a fully functional driving cab to provide real-life environment.

Display System

The visual system with high definition graphics is a key component of the training simulator. A properly designed visual system increases the level of realism and immerses the operators in real world mining environments. The display system of mining simulators is available in multiple options of single-screen display of 32″, three 32″ screen display, Curved screens with multiple projectors for a seamless 180-degree display. Additional screens are provided for blind spot and rear view while operating with other machines.

motion system

Motion System

TecknSIM Mining Simulators offer an integrated motion system based on electric actuators that makes it compact and low on maintenance. The motion system provides accurate feedback required for a realistic operating experience on a mine site. It is programmed to provide cues and feedback with sensations of steering, acceleration, braking, turning, jerks, gradients, tires and soil interaction. Motion systems are available in options of three degrees of motion (3DOF) and six degrees of freedom (6DOF) Motion Platforms.

Instructor Station

The instructor station controls the operator cab and allows trainers with the following options:

  • Managing database of trainees and instructors
  • Controlling multiple simulators
  • Creation of new exercises
  • Modifying the environment in a running session
  • Injecting vehicle faults in a running session
  • Record and replay of saved sessions
  • Managing performance evaluation reports
  • Calibration of simulators

Convertible Kits

The Dumper Truck Simulator is compatible with convertible kits. Convertible kits are interchangeable equipment kits that fit onto base simulator platforms allowing the customer to use a range of different equipments on the same simulator. Convertible kit change on the simulator takes about 15- 20 minutes.
