MB-2000 Bus Driver Training Simulator

The 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.

Simulator Features

  • Optional real mirrors provide additional training opportunities. Using the rearward visuals, as projected by the rear displays and observed in rearview mirrors, allows the student to parallax as required in real life. With parallax, the driver can lean forward/back in the seat to change the visual perspective. Enhances training for proper backing exercises, lane clearing, and blind spots.
  • A fully enclosed, wide bus cab/driving station. This driver training simulator closely replicates the driving
    environment the students will interact with in real life.
  • Authentic bus dash, side instrument panel, and seating configuration
  • Floor buttons for right and left turn indications and bright lights
  • TrueFeel Steering providing a more realistic “feel” for force feedback, camber recovery, tire scrub, curb strikes and road vibration.
  • Proper braking controls
  • Doppler effect surround sound to enhance acceleration, deceleration and cornering. Other sounds include engine
    sped, road noise, tire skidding, brake application, and collisions with vehicles, signs, trees, buildings.
  • Scripted scenario lessons designed to teach a variety of driving/judgment skill
  • The capability to pause a scenario. Instructors can elect 1 of 3 re-drive options: have the student continue to drive from the point of the pause OR jump back to a previous point in the exercise OR completely re-drive the entire exercise.
  • The capability to initiate malfunctions such as a tire blow out, drop in oil pressure
  • Passengers, seen from the rear view mirror, get on/off the bus and fight with one another
  • Afeature allowing instructors or students to switch to an overhead view and to review and reinforce street-level situations.
  • The capability to initiate malfunctions such as a tire blow out, drop in oil pressure
  • Scoring and record keeping functions
  • 4 separate driving worlds to meet the driver training needs of agencies throughout the world.
  • Instructor Operator Station (IOS).
  • System documentation
