Realistic environments provide real experience. FAAC’s responsive, immersive transit simulators create vivid virtual environments that have been demonstrated to improve safety through basic skills development, refresher activities, annual certifications, and remedial lessons. FAAC transit simulator solutions have improved safety performance by more than 60 percent for preventable accidents, while decreasing the new-hire washout rate by 35 percent.
“Our data collection spoke for itself, a decrease of 69.23% in accidents for those operators trained on the simulator.” — Zerry L. Hogan, LYNX Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority
Most importantly, with a FAAC transit simulator, you can reap all of these benefits with absolutely no risk to equipment, workers, or the community.
A transit simulator may be as simple as a multi-screen, interactive virtual model of generic situations faced by drivers. Or it can be a fully custom hardware/software system, with specific geographical elements matching your area and the actual routes through communities you serve. FAAC can build complete cabs, precisely matching your fleets’ controls, indicators, gauges, and switches, with motion seats and wraparound screens. Every simulation supports real-time rendering and control of lighting conditions (day, night, dusk, dawn, glaringly bright to overcast), equipment failures, signal faults, and a full range of weather conditions, with extremely fine control of weather severity and mix.
