Introduction

TecknoSIM Tipper Truck Simulator is an advanced training tool to train and test drivers on driving light trucks safely in a mine environment. It’s an excellent tool to train new and experienced drivers alike. New drivers get familiarized with the vehicle and learn basic operating techniques on a simulator before they operate an actual Tipper. Advance drivers focus on increasing operator safety, improving productivity and reducing levels of unscheduled maintenance. Simulator is based on the actual equipment and replicates the vehicle dynamics perfectly. With TecknoSIM simulator, clients can be assured that their equipment is not taken out of production for training that directly helps in increasing productivity.

Software Features

Virtual Mine Environment

TecknoSIM Tipper Simulators are delivered with a highly realistic, virtual mine sites, complete with artificially intelligent equipment such as haul trucks, shovels, excavators, loaders 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, crusher sites , parking areas and other details.

Training Modules

Training modules are progressive and suited to train and test operators of a tipper truck. Training curriculum gradually progresses from basic skills for new operators to advanced operational skills for experienced operators. Operators are trained and evaluated under different work scenarios, from basic maneuvering to advanced operations in rough condition, Real-time change in weather like rain, fog, dust and nighttime conditions add to the realism. Training modules include the following scenarios depending on the specific equipment and blade type being simulated like:

  • Control Familarization
  • Manuevering
  • Loading
  • Dumping
  • Startup and Shutdown Procedures

*Customised scenarios 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

Operator cab of a TecknoSIM Tipper simulator is based on a standard tipper with a seat and all equipment controls as seen in actual equipment. The seat is surrounded by fully functional controls including joysticks, levers, switches, keypads, gauges and pedals. The station consists of an instrument panel that mimics real controls and instruments as in a tipper. The simulator can be configured to any OEM console and accommodate multiple equipment types in the same hardware with convertible kits.

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 are available in multiple options of single-screen display of 32″, three 32″ screen display, Curved screens with multiple projectors for seamless 180-degree display. Additional screens are provided for blind spot and rear view while operating with other machines.

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 Tipper 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 types of equipment on the same simulator. Convertible kit change on the simulator takes about 15- 20 minutes.
