The Motion-Cueing System that’s deployed in more heavy equipment simulators than any other.

Easy to Deploy – Proven – Scalable

The best training solution is the one your trainees will believe in. Most operators are multimodal trainees: they learn better when they see, hear, and feel. Because of this, motion cueing technology is an essential component of the trainee experience.

Motion generates kinesthetic cues and stimulates the muscle memory. And as operators spend more time training virtually, this process builds better operators—ensuring efficient and safer operations.

D-BOX Motion Cueing Systems are already the most heavily deployed solution in the industry. With our partners CM Labs, John Deere, SwRI, and many others, we make operators safer thanks to heavy construction machinery simulators that make them feel like they’re in the real thing, from cranes and dozers to excavators and loaders.

 

D-BOX is a strong partner when we develop simulators. Their solution is a flexible, turnkey motion cueing system which allows us to deliver the best simulators to our customers on time and on budget.

Quickly Reach Compliance

True-to-life motion cueing simulation on heavy equipment helps to train operators efficiently, allowing them to develop the skills they need to pass certification exams quickly and confidently. By integrating with your preferred simulation training software, D-BOX motion technology gives operators a visceral experience of operating heavy machinery under ideal – and more importantly, not-so-ideal – circumstances, making sure they’re ready for the real thing.

Accurately Deliver Effective Psychomotor Training

Preparing your trainees to operate heavy machinery in the real world requires a simulator that uses precise kinesthetic cues to develop accurate psychomotor reflexes. When integrated with best-of-breed simulation software, D-BOX motion technology creates “pure movement” cues, providing an immersive experience that develops trainees’ critical reflexes and muscle memory.

Minimize Risks and Damage to Equipment

Trainees must stay safe while they’re learning to operate heavy equipment and expensive machinery needs to remain safe from unskilled handling. D-BOX and its partners solve both these problems with a single solution. By incorporating D-BOX motion technology into your simulation system, you give your students a truly accurate experience of handling large machinery, while eliminating the risks of training on the machinery itself.

 


D-BOX Motion-Cueing Systems core benefits

Engaging

Optimal simulation training is engaging enough to remove psychological barriers to learning, creating psychomotor reflexes that respond to real-life situations. D-BOX immerses trainees by replicating the platform’s movement while using rich motion cueing to replicate vibrations, such as detonations, in the surrounding environment.

Affordable

Traditional training simulators are not necessarily optimal from a cost benefit perspective. D-BOX motion-cueing systems deliver state-of-the-art simulation at a fraction of the price. What’s more, our interoperability and ease of deployment further reduce the overall cost of deploying and managing a simulation training program

Easy to Deploy

Operational requirements and situations can quickly develop and change, requiring simulation systems that can be rapidly deployed anywhere, anytime. An interoperable COTS solution, D-BOX technology is a game changer, thanks to its ease of installation, low electrical power requirements, low shipment weight and reduced deployment time

Interoperable

Easily integrate D-BOX technology with your existing simulator’s architecture. We rely on open APIs and communication standards to ensure that our motion-cueing systems easily interoperate with partner and client software

Commercial Off-the-Shelf

As a COTS system, D-BOX offers a remarkably affordable and reliable solution. Our technology is supported and documented, and therefore easy to integrate and manage. Users can access all our expertise, including motion code, behavioral subtlety and vibrations.

Robust technology that simulates real-life movement and vibrations


D-BOX motion-cueing technology is used to augment safety in applications worldwide, wherever humans need to be efficiently trained for real-life field operations. Our motion systems are used for training across all domains from construction to ports and mining and beyond.

 Hardware

D-BOX motion hardware can be integrated into a seat, platform or other surface to simulate a range of textures and scalable axes of movement. Our motion systems are evolutive and scalable. We can help you select the optimal arrangement of actuators for your application, ensuring you deliver on budget and on time.

Software

For simulation, D-BOX interactive software uses motion algorithms to respond to user commands. Motion signals are sent to our motion controller, which decrypts the signal and sends the queue to our motion actuators. D-BOX motion specialists support your integration to replicate all vehicle movements from your simulation, including vehicle position, acceleration, suspension, detonations, engine vibrations and movement of articulated parts.

Ready to fit in your architecture

D-BOX technology replicates the movement of heavy equipment with stunning accuracy. Our out-of-the-box motion-cueing technology creates true-to-life motion that syncs with any simulation software or architecture.

From construction to mining, our clients use D-BOX motion technology to train operators on all types of heavy machinery

  • Port and construction cranes
  • Earthmoving machinery
  • Heavy construction equipment

  • Mining machinery
  • Industrial and plant equipment
  • Forestry and agricultural equipment


Cat® Simulators

CM Labs simulators in containers

In many cases, motion is becoming a mandatory part of the training curriculum. For example, the motion of the simulator is the only way to train an excavator operator on the type of soil he is digging in. Improving simulator movement quality and realism is also critical in other cases, such as educating a dozer operator on the feedback he should expect when driving over a bump he need to flatten.

D-BOX’s price point and off-the-shelf solution availability means our partners are satisfied with their rapid D-BOX return on investment. Our motion expertise and products ensure consistent quality, reliability and ease of deployment that bring training to a new level of realism. We are the motion architects of your simulation.

Easily integrate D-BOX technology with your existing simulator’s architecture.

Architecture

D-BOX Technology integrations rely on open APIs and communication standards to ensure that our motion-cueing systems easily interoperate with partner and client software to transfer all movements and vibrations from the simulation engine to real life.
