Last week, Volvo Construction Equipment presented the new generation software for their Volvo Excavator, Volvo Wheel loader and Volvo Articulated Hauler Simulators. During the six-day expo, almost 1.400 visitors tried operating the simulated Volvo machines. The main new feature in the Volvo simulators is a new Learning Management System called OPS (Operator Performance System) where each exercise has built in operator development material and is bundled with relevant video material. This is done to make it easy to understand how to operate a machine by watching the Volvo operator development material and then directly try it out in a custom-made exercise. Instant feedback and physically performing the task is the way to lasting performance!
When practicing, the operator will also be able to compare their result with other operators. Being able to compare your performance with others will trigger operators to find out how others are able to reach higher scores.
At Oryx, we are proud to once again have moved the bar of realistic heavy machine simulation. With Volvo, we have been first with most innovations for simulators. The Volvo simulators have been part of the major Volvo trade shows since 2007 and will likely be there for the next ones. See you at Bauma 2019!
