Excavators are capable of digging deeper and more efficiently than most other earthmoving equipment.

They are primarily used to dig above and below grade, and can also be used to trench, load material into trucks and lift light loads using slings.

The upper structure of the excavator is composed by a hoe, the operator’s cab and the engine compartment, and it rests and rotates on a turntable supported by an undercarriage with tracks.

The turntable is capable of rotating 360º, allowing the operator to dig and load in tighter areas in a timelier manner.

Excavator:night work

Special driving conditions

  • Weather events: wind, rain, fog, snow, etc.
  • Variable light conditions, from full light to night time. Work with artificial light.
  • Simulation of accidents and collisions, with realistic response.
  • Realistic response of the excavator according to the load carried and the collisions produced.
  • Realistic ground and terrain dynamics: terrain mass, excavation forces, inertial properties and collisions that affect the behavior of the machine.
  • Presence of avatars in the work environment.
  • Other vehicles included on stage, such as transport trucks, crane trucks, etc. They contribute to the realistic environment.

Instructional design and 360 Excavator Simulator exercises

  • Exercise tests block: several exercises with test questions on general aspects, controls, maneuvers and maintenance of the machine.
  • Block of the familiarization with the controls of the machine: check of controls, precise positioning of the bucket, arc paths.
