OVER VIEW OF THE SIMULATOR
TecknoSim Rider Training Simulator is a fully functional Motorbike simulator that enables professional training on the actual bike before riding on roads.
TecknoSim Rider allows
- Familiarization to Bike Controls (Operation and maintenance)
- Learning the operation vehicle controls
- Practice Techniques of safe riding
- Defensive Rider training in a completely safe environment.
It is a “simple tool built on a world class technology” to teach the techniques of Safe Riding.
TecknoSim Rider Training Simulator – is a fully functional, pre-configured simulator thatcontains all necessary HW and SW modules, Visual System, Visual Database, and a fullyfunctional motorbike with instrumentation to provide a ‘real-life” operating environment. Theprimary goal of the Simulator is to “help riders experience the hazards not possiblein real life and help them understand the joy of safe riding.”
The simulator provides an immersive environment, comprising a riding station with three LCDScreen as the main hardware elements. This high level of reality performance is necessary fortraining riders in high-risk situations and in situations that are impossible to train on in normal traffic.
In the Simulator, special attention has been given to designing the Instructor Operator Station(IOS). The Instructor Operator Station employs a user interface system that allows the operatorto monitor the rider’s behavior and how he is dealing with potentially hazardous riding situations. Through this station the Instructor can control all variables like time of the day,weather, traffic and the autonomous objects such as cattle, pedestrians, etc.
The simulator comes with a set of City Terrain and Highway terrain based on Indian Road Conditions. Weather Conditions like Rain, Night and Day, Foggy conditions are also created with varying intensity. In addition, IOS allows the instructor to tailor-make individual riding situations for different simulator applications.
The system has multi unit linking facility so that two to more riding simulators can be interconnected and controlled through the Instructor Station. The simulator provides facility for centralized as well as individual control of the trainee by instructor.
FEATURES OF THE SIMULATOR
Driver Station: The Rider Station comprises a motorbike body mounted on a light weight frame, modified for the simulation purpose.
Dynamic Modeling: The simulator incorporates real vehicle dynamics like Speed from 0 to 120 kmph . Steering andcounter steering and Movement of the bike coming from 3Dvisuals.
Visual Display: The rider must perceive the virtual world as realistic as possible. A high performance graphics systemthus proposes a rich and realistic 3D environment.
- Front: Visual Display through single / three flat LCDscreen Eye screen distance: 180 cm, Field of view:120 degrees
- Rear: The rear view will be projected at the bottom of the front screen.
Sound: Stereophonic representation of surrounding like traffic noise , engine, horn, collisions,voice messages etc.
Image Quality: High resolution typically 30-60 Hz, based on a PC platform.
Traffic: Interactive Autonomous traffic density of 150 vehicles like car, bus, trucks, bikes following traffic rules, and pedestrians to experience realistic Indian traffic.
Training Cues: These are written and voice messages giving information, instructions and tips on basic rules for habitual safe riding. Training Cues are available in options of English and Hindi.
All instruments and signallights are functionally in operation:
- Handlebar controls: Clutch Brake, Accelerator, turn signals, horn, ignition
- Pedal controls : Gears, foot break
- Soft Instrument Panel: Signal Light, headlight, fuel gauge, oil gauge, speedometer
Instructor station is a separate station at which the Instructor is able to create, initiate, control, monitor,record and evaluate training exercises. The IOSconsists of a keyboard, mouse and large screenmonitor interface, mounted upon a fitted Desk. The IOS can be connected to a printer to print the detailed evaluation report of each student.
