A Telehandler is a machine widely used in agriculture and industry. It is similar in appearance and function to a forklift, with the greatest versatility of a telescopic arm that can extend forward and up from the vehicle. At the end of the boom, the operator can fit one of several accessories, such as a bucket, pallet forks, mud catch, or lift platforms.

The most common application is to move loads to places inaccessible to a conventional forklift truck. For example, telescopic handlers have the ability to pull palletized cargo from within a trailer or place loads on roofs and other high places. The latter application would otherwise require a crane, which is not always practical or efficient.

Basically it is composed by a chassis with translation capable of supporting an arm for the manipulation of loads.

Why use the Telehandler Simulator of LSyM for learning?

Through the Telehandler Simulator developed by the LSyM group the operators will obtain the necessary expertise and knowledge to avoid or know how to act in situations of risk such as:

  • Running over workers
  • Collisions between vehicles or other elements of the work area
  • Entrapment due to lack of protective shells or due to failure of immobilization or blocking elements
  • Trapping by overturning or falling of materials
  • Fall of the load on people
  • Machine overturning
  • Other: direct and indirect electrical contacts, explosions and fires

Furthermore, thanks to the use of the simulator, risk situations that are impossible to carry out in training with the real machine can be created.

Instructional design

The Telehandler Simulator developed by the LSyM group incorporates a detailed instructional design divided into blocks, each of these blocks including a series of exercises that progressively increase its difficulty as the student is overcoming them.
