Mining trucks are powerful rigid dump trucks specifically engineered for use in high-production mining and heavy-duty construction environments.

These high tonnage trucks are used to transport material in large quantities.

The double axle chassis is equipped with a front cab, and is pulled by large wheels. The front of the hopper can be lifted by a hydraulic mechanism, so that the loaded material can be dumped into the soil from the rear of the vehicle.

Why use the Mining trucks Simulator of LSyM?

Thanks to the mining truck simulator developed by the LSyM group the operators will obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to avoid or know how to act in a risk situations such as:

  • Hits with static or moving machine objects
  • Entrapment by or between objects, or by overturning of machines
  • Thermal and / or electrical contact
  • Fires
  • Hits, bumps and collisions with or against other vehicles
  • Falls to the pits

For our Mining Truck Simulator, a complete block design has been implemented, each of these blocks include a series of exercises that progressively increase its difficulty as the student overcomes them.

The user of our simulator can perform, among others, the following exercises:

  • Test questions.
  • Learning and recognition of driving commands.
  • Simple driving and parking.
  • Advanced driving with and without load.
  • Materials loading exercises.
  • Material unload exercises.
  • Maneuvering exercises in adverse weather conditions.

Reports at the instructor's console

  • Date.
  • Starting and ending time.
  • Time length.
  • Finished exercises.
  • Control handling log.
  • Velocity log.
  • Collision log.
  • Dangerous maneuvers log.
