Two cutting edge driving simulators in Sydney

The two CORYS New Intercity Fleet simulators have achieved Provisional Acceptance in Sydney Australia to enable Transport for NSW to begin driver training ahead of the New Intercity Fleet roll out.

The simulators come packed with the latest driver training technology from the leading French simulator supplier. Built in two bespoke shipping containers, each simulator comprises a cab replica using OEM parts, the Main Electrical Locker, an instructor station and a diesel generator to enable standalone operations. The simulators run on 480km of 3D computer generated images built using georeferenced mobile mapping technology that model Newcastle to Central, Central to Lithgow and Central to Kiama with high resolution accuracy. CORYS supplied the simulators with prebuilt driver training scenarios covering the New Intercity Fleet cab technology:

ETCS

Integration of the real Train Management System

Integration of real train platform CCTV with passenger artificial intelligence for the platform train interface

Different driver and guard operating modes

Multiple Unit Interactive Console (MUIC) for virtual external train navigation and faults troubleshooting

In addition to the simulators, the project comprised a blended learning solution using laptop simulators and e-learning modules integrated in the Transport for NSW Learning Management System. The laptop simulators run the same software on a single laptop for interactive Transport for NSW classroom training prior to driving the cab simulators.

The New Intercity Fleet is a NSW Government project to replace trains carrying customers between Sydney and the Central Coast, Newcastle, the Blue Mountains and the South Coast. The fleet of double deck trains will offer long distance customers a more enjoyable travelling experience, providing comfortable seating, advanced communications technology and enhanced commuter amenities.

For CORYS John Madden, Commercial Manager said “We are delighted to have met this significant New Intercity Fleet project milestone. This has been an ambitious project that has included a rigorous engineering process for Safety Analysis, Hazard Analysis, Human Factors Analysis and Training Needs Analysis. The project worked closely with Mitsubishi Electric Australia who were responsible for the supply of traction technology and the software, electronic interfaces for driver, passenger systems and network interfaces. Given the travel restrictions imposed by the COVID pandemic, user training was provided remotely. We welcome Transport for NSW to our growing Australian customer base and look forward to supporting the New Intercity Fleet project.”
