Stuttgart’s tramway drivers hone their skills from the safety of CORYS Replica Simulators

CORYS recently delivered a new 1:1 Replica Simulator to Stuttgarter Straßenbahnen AG (SSB), Stuttgart, one of the largest public transport companies in Stuttgart, Germany.

 

This new project brings the total number of CORYS Replica Simulators at SSB to three. The operator has been working with CORYS since 2017 to meet its driver training and assessment needs.

 

The new full-scope LRV simulator is built on a 1:1 replica of the tramway cab complete with motion simulation in the seat. It is now up and running at SSB’s training centre along with two instructor stations that can be used to control all three of SSB’s CORYS simulators via Tactis touch screens and tablets.

SSB’s tramway drivers work in a busy and unpredictable urban environment that makes training them in the real world a challenge, either for safety guidelines or due to the unavailability of rolling stock for training. Replica Simulators provide an unparalleled learning experience in an immersive environment that combines the actual controls of the tramway learners will be driving in the real world with motion seat technology and realistic computer-generated images (CGI) of the lines.

 

At SSB, instructors use CORYS Tactis touch tablets to move around the training centre, increasing the quality of their interaction with trainees. Instructors can also use the instructor station’s joystick to introduce random events, including unexpected pedestrian activity, into training scenarios in real time to see how learners will respond. SSB is using the CORYS simulators for basic training, practice and assessment purposes.

 

CORYS and SSB have been working together for years, an investment that continues to pay off as CORYS’ dedicated project team builds up expert knowledge of SSB’s simulation needs and operating environment. On this new project, CORYS engineers modified the simulator—and removed the passenger compartment to meet the space requirements at SSB’s training centre. The SSB project team and specialist departments at SSB were also instrumental in providing detailed simulation of all signalling on the lines.

"with the use of the simulators, we are able to train on line events, signal failures and the necessary communication with the control centre and passengers in a realistic way"

 

 

“Our knowledge of SSB’s entire ecosystem helped us respond efficiently to their new needs and offer a fast turnaround on this project. It is always a pleasure for us at CORYS to work with the dedicated, professional people at SSB.”
