Simulator Features

The MB 2000 replicates the metro transit environment drivers will interact with in real life–in both ideal and adverse conditions. Authentic bus dash, side instrument panel, and driver’s seat configuration give students the feeling of being behind-the-wheel. Optional real mirrors provide additional training opportunities for coping with parallax, leading to improved backing, lane clearing, and blind spot management. TrueFeel Steering provides a more realistic “feel” for force feedback, camber recovery, tire scrub, curb strikes, and road vibration. And Doppler effect surround sound enhances the realism of simulated brake application, acceleration, deceleration, and cornering. Overhead view lets trainees see the bigger picture during a sim and in review. Dozens of scenarios incorporate direct personal interactions, including customer service and passenger conflict. All of these features work together to provide a realistic training program that prepares metro transit drivers for safe and defensive driving–without the dangers posed by putting trainees behind-the-wheel (even on a closed course) too soon.

Every FAAC transit sim comes with VITALS, the Virtual Instructor Trainee Assessment and Learning System. This graphical assessment tool is more than simply a “score sheet.” VITALS acts as an interactive playbook for the instructor. It helps them develop custom curricula for each trainee based on recognized best practices, agency policy, and that trainee’s specific strengths and areas of improvement.
