The entire world can be depicted
The entire world of machines can be depicted. However, for a simulation to be complete and realistic, it has to include numerous sub-systems, simulate them and bring them together in one unified system.
The simulation of the work environment, visibility and weather conditions as well as lighting.
The representation of important machine and environmental noises during operation or in a collision using a sound generator.
Using digital, three dimensional vehicle models with complex axle kinematics, elasticity and damping it is possible to carry out predefined driving manoeuvres. Cause, effect and how they are connected become obvious and can be trained.
A copy of the basic functions, controls and the operation of the machine and systems, as well as the operating conditions, in a virtual model.
Recreation of the characteristics of the real machine using mathematical models.
Collision/Interaction with the machine
Along with the geometric models, we also develop the corresponding collision models. These enable us to determine precisely how the machine is positioned and whether it collides with other elements in the environment.
Simulation of the physical characteristics of the materials and the environment.
Modelling and dynamic simulation of processes and systems for analysis and optimisation.
Simulation of operation data/ conditions, representation of the complex interrelationship between drive, gears and brakes
The controls inform the operator what the maximum position is and what possible manoeuvres the machine could make. The temperature of the motor, gears and the torque convertor as well as the current power distribution of the various systems can all be shown so that the trainee has a detailed picture of how the machine is functioning.
Virtual models are given static characteristics such as load distribution and tilting characteristics. The goal is to achieve a realistic feel for near-danger and danger situations as well as demonstrating the reactions of the machine.
