CYBERMINE 4th generation simulators, now with two HD instructor screens, improved reporting, a full 360° panoramic display and much much more.

At the heart of each CYBERMINE mining simulator is a simulated cab, a highly realistic replica of the actual equipment, with fully functional simulated instruments and controls. The replicated cab is mounted on a motion platform capable of imparting up to six degrees of freedom and is surrounded by a 270° or full 360° panoramic, high-resolution projection display system with surround sound audio. Control of all aspects of training and evaluation is exercised in real time from a feature rich instructor station and displayed on two High Definition widescreen displays. The entire simulator system is housed in a well-appointed, self-contained ISO standard container, which also facilitates ease of transport. CYBERMINE mining simulators offer a controlled environment which is highly conducive to the professional training, re-training and evaluation of student operators.

Each CYBERMINE mining simulator provides training and facilitates objective evaluation in the following areas:
• Training and evaluating novices in the proficient operation of heavy equipment
• Providing a new-recruit screening system
• Providing effective refresher training for experienced operators
• Instilling the theory and practical aspects of economical mining
• Providing training in emergency situations not possible on the real mining equipment
• Entrenching safety procedures

Operators are logged onto the CYBERMINE mining simulator using a unique password. As the operator controls the heavy equipment, all aspects of operation are electronically monitored and digitally presented, including adherence to operating and safety procedures and student’s economic performance. Exercise results are stored in a comprehensive database for viewing and printing by the instructor. The entire exercise is recorded for after-action-review.CYBERMINE mining simulators immerse the operator in a highly realistic operating environment within a 3D virtual training world. Instruments and controls are either sourced from original equipment manufacturers or accurately replicated to function as they do in the real mining equipment. The operation of sub-systems such as engines, braking systems, hydraulics and drilling heads is mathematically modelled to original manufacturer specifications so as to provide accurate, realistic feedback to the student. Other simulated equipment and vehicles interoperate with the student to test and enhance his skill levels. Accurate 3D surround sound reproduction and composite visual effects such as reflections, dust, rain and shadows complete the picture to ensure a high fidelity training experience.

The CYBERMINE mining simulator range simulates heavy equipment from all major manufacturers such as Caterpillar (CAT), Komatsu, Sandvik, Atlas Copco, Hitachi, Volvo, Bell, Bucyrus, P&H, Terex and Liebherr.
