Immersive Technologies released its next generation Advanced Equipment Simulators — the PRO3 for surface mining and the UG360 for underground mining. The PRO3 features a seamless 180-degree visual display system in combination with another feature that adjusts the perspective of the operator to provide a true real-world view outside the cab while increasing the operator’s level of depth perception. The company says its UG360 features a 360-degree visual system, making it the first of its kind to deliver the level of realism required for training. Both simulators are installed with new, highly responsive motion platforms that simulate the movement of mining equipment.
