Peoria, Ill.—The CSE Software™ Serious Gaming and Simulation team has developed new simulation software to train operators how to navigate a quarry in a Large Wheel Loader.

The Large Wheel Loader is used in quarry and mining operations around the world. With CSE’s simulation software, users can learn to safely operate the actual machine by practicing and mastering skills in a virtual environment, including loading and unloading aggregates. The software features multiple training exercises such as how to perform a Machine Walkaround, Controls Familiarization, Driving, Loading, Carrying, Dumping and more. The software also includes a special Open Training mode that allows users to maneuver the machine in the environment using any of the skills learned in the simulator.

The simulated machine is based on an actual Caterpillar Large Wheel Loader. CSE’s 3D modelers and texture artists create the simulated machine with the same detail as the actual Wheel Loader. The machine exercises are based on the same applications that operators perform on real-world worksites. CSE’s 3D programmers and physics engineers work together to ensure that the simulated machine’s physics respond/react realistically to the environment and terrain interaction. Results of simulation sessions can be recorded and reported for user feedback. Actual controls are used in tandem with the software and a motion system is also available to give operators an even more authentic training experience. The software is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Russian and Chinese.

The Large Wheel Loader simulation software is developed for Simformotion™ LLC, the licensee for Cat® Simulators for Caterpillar Inc. In addition to the Large Wheel Loader, CSE has developed a number of other simulations for heavy equipment, business and the healthcare industry.
