CM Labs Offers Innovative New Training Customization Capabilities
CM Labs has developed an innovative new feature that gives instructors the ability to make changes to training scenarios, and push them directly to operators training on CM Labs’ Vortex simulators. Using a tool called the Instructor Operating Station (IOS), which allows trainers to launch and monitor simulator training exercises, instructors can now make changes to exercises on the fly.
For example, trainers can add different objects to the worksite and change the position of vehicles, or simply tailor exercises to individual trainee abilities for even more efficient learning. What makes this possible is the simulation software “under the hood” of the IOS. This software, Vortex Studio, is designed to realistically simulate mechanical equipment and their operating environment, whether for training, or for engineering and prototyping applications. OEMs can also leverage Vortex Studio to make engineering design changes within the software, and push them immediately to a simulator for human-in-the-loop testing. Operating data can also be captured for tracking and analysis. The result is a vast reduction in development risk, and far less reliance on costly field prototypes.
