Full Mission Simulator
This high end solution includes a realistic replica of the driving cab and all the driving controls. Optionally, it can be complemented with 3,5 or 6 DOF (degrees of freedom) motion platform. By offering a complete immersion, this simulator offers to students the closest driving experience to operating an actual train (locomotive, multiple unit cars, light rail vehicle or tramway). Sometimes used for drivers' recertification, this configuration is an unrivalled solution to enable driver's training in response to key safety issues, addressing operating incidents or providing passenger service. While significantly reducing the cost of training, the Full Mission Simulator provides the student with a 'true to life' experience of emergency situations and rolling stock malfunctions that would be impossible or very costly to demonstrate in operating environment and hands-on training.
Providing a full range of preparation, monitoring and supervision tools, the Full Mission Simulator is an ideal solution for new rolling stock introduction, drivers' conversion and screening of new hires.
