Simformotion, a leader in heavy equipment simulator training solutions, recently released its newest Cat simulator system, SimLite Dozer. The new compact and portable system allows instructors and trainees to use the training inside of the classroom at socially distanced stations or travel off-site with users. It’s the second model in the SimLite line.
“After over a year in a pandemic, and releasing the SimLite line early in the shutdown, we’ve heard from our clients that more compact and portable training is needed,” said Vanessa Price, director of Simformotion. “A system that can travel easily in pelican cases works well in classrooms set up at socially distanced stations and can also travel off site as needed.”
SimLite is built on a standardized platform and designed as a self-contained educational tool deployed through hardware and software. The simulators include exercises that teach how to perform a walkaround inspection, principles of steering, straight and level dozing, backfilling, and slot dozing. Plus, an open training mode in each exercise offers opportunities for additional practice, skill refinement, and recreating site-specific scenarios for training. The system is available in multiple languages. Genuine Cat controls, a program that reports the results of simulations sessions, and a curriculum make the system unique to Cat Simulators. The system also has an option for VR Edition. The headset allows the user great depth perception and a larger view of the environment.
