Simulator Training for Cat Articulated Truck Operators


Heavy-equipment simulator training developer Simformotion has released its new Cat Simulators articulated truck system, featuring authentic controls combined with simulated applications, designed to teach truck controls familiarization, how to perform a machine walkaround, driving, hauling, braking, loading methods, unloading, full production cycle, and also including a special open training mode. Exclusive to its Cat Simulators is SimU Campus—software that records and reports the results of all simulation sessions so instructors and users can track progress. Hundreds of benchmarks based on Caterpillar expert operators are included in the system, with the operator’s performance measured against these benchmarks and outcomes recorded to a database. Special bonus features on the articulated truck system include companion iPad training, multiple languages and an available motion platform.
