Mass transit operator VAG takes full advantage of their tram simulator 

Tramways operate in busy urban environments which makes training drivers particularly challenging. For safety reasons, training on real tramways must be scheduled during off hours and can mean taking tramways out of service.

CORYS high-fidelity tram simulators lets drivers practice responding to stressful, unpredictable situations safely and without immobilising the rolling stock. A CORYS tramway simulator mounted on a full motion platform with interchangeable panels to simulate four types of tram was commissioned at VAG Nuremberg in May.

The realistic desk simulator was built using OEM* parts with computer-generated images to give drivers an ultra-realistic experience of the busy environment on and around the trams. The simulator includes a total of 40 km of track and five different lines.

The simulator also offers innovative features designed to enhance teaching and give learners as realistic an experience as possible. The Tactis instructor station with mobile tablet is a key part of the solution. Instructors can easily create scenarios and change lines from a practical map interface without having to load a new scenario. They can also take the tablet with them on the fly to control the simulation next to the trainees.

Fault-finding and manoeuvring modules, useful for both initial and refresher training, are also included in the simulator.

‘We are happy to see our customer VAG getting so much out of their new simulator. It was a pleasure to work with VAG and see their commitment to the project.’

‘With the procurement of the Tram Simulator, an important gap in the use of simulators in training and further education has been closed. Now we are able to use simulators on all the public transport vehicles we use at VAG in Nuremberg. This enables us to provide high-quality training from the beginning to the end of basic training. Likewise, we can relieve our network by using the simulators in further training. I have very much enjoyed working with CORYS with a relationship of mutual trust and respect. The joint efforts have visibly paid off and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the CORYS team for their hard work.’

Rainer Wendler, Simulator Project Manager
