Alstom Transport, through its Knowledge Centre, is offering its customers a panel of completely innovative training sessions. Among these is a driving simulator. A virtual tram cab, the simulator comprises all the components of a real vehicle.
Sitting comfortably, the trainee sees the track in real situations on the screen in front of him. Touch screens simulate the main driving operations and scale-1 controls modelize the traction and braking controls.
The equipment provides the same sensations as when driving a Citadis tram for real. Modules can be updated easily to incorporate more complex scenarios involving critical cross-roads for instance.
