Bus Driver Training Simulation Training

Reduce Accidents by 60% while Improving Driver Safety and Efficiency

Realistic environments provide real experience. FAAC’s responsive, immersive bus driver training simulators create vivid virtual environments. They’ve been shown to improve transit driver safety, building basic skills while honing effective forward planning and good judgment under pressure:

     “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

FAAC bus operator training simulators solutions don’t just improve safety. They are also field proven to decrease new-hire washout rates by 35 percent while improving fuel economy and the overall efficiency of transit operations.

Most importantly, with a FAAC bus driving simulator you can reap all of these benefits with absolutely no risk to equipment, workers, or the community.

 

MB-1000 Bus Training Simulator

Better Bus Driving Simulation Tools, More Effective Bus Driver Training

The MB-2000 bus driver training system has a fully modeled cab with authentic controls (either generic, or customized to precisely match the vehicle in your fleet). The multi-screen high-definition display system provides a geometrically correct 330º field-of-view. Real physical mirrors give operators authentic practice with one of the most challenging aspects of piloting a large vehicle. The MB-1000 offers many of the same advantages and capabilities on a more economical platform.

Either can be customized to match your fleet and train the operators of almost any transit vehicle. Every simulator comes with pre-programmed lessons that emphasize correct mirror usage, proper handling of temporary visual obstructions, managing pivot points, and other critical training objectives. FAAC’s programmable simulation software supports a completely customizable mix of traffic densities and behaviors, weather conditions, and more, all of which can be adjusted by the instructor in real-time.

But the technology is only half the solution. Over and over again, our customers find that the real value in an integrated, immersive bus driver simulation training solution is in the opportunities it creates for trainers to pinpoint exactly where their students are succeeding and falling short, and prepare them for both everyday tasks and low-frequency, high-risk events.

Bus Driver Training ScenarioThe MB-2000 delivers a fully customized training experience. Real working physical mirrors are combined with lessons that emphasize the purpose and proper use of each mirror to accomplish critical training objectives. Cabs can be configured to match the precise layout of controls, indicators, gauges, and switches as found in your actual fleet vehicles. The most expansive and accurate field of view – geometrically correct through 330 degrees – enables trainees to look past 90 degrees to observe key reference points.
