Bulldozer Personal Simulator


DZR Screen Capture Image

Simlog's new Bulldozer Personal Simulator puts you at the controls of a medium-sized bulldozer (also called "dozer", "tractor", "crawler tractor", "track type tractor") in a typical construction site.


You can either use your own PC or choose the convenience of our PC bundle with the Simlog software already installed, licensed, and ready to go in English, French, Spanish or Portuguese.


Add a big screen display for "life size" graphics, and quality speakers for the audio feedback. Simlog even offers a vibration system to enhance the simulation experience. There are setup options to suit most every budget.


Simulator Controls

Many kinds of USB-ready simulator controls and mounting configurations are available, including:


Please note that Simlog's hardware products are only sold for use with Simlog's simulation software.


If you are a Simlog customer, then you may be able to re-use the simulator controls that you already have. To learn more, please contact Simlog.


Software Description

There are seven "Simulation Modules" of increasing difficulty, starting with Controls Familiarization and then progressing through Bulldozer Positioning, Boulder Control, Backfilling 1 and 2, Slot Dozing, and finally Spreading. Many different kinds of situations are presented, in order to address the training needs of a wide variety of customers using different operational practices. You can even use the keyboard function keys and mouse controls during the simulation to change the point of view, to present views from outside the cabin e.g. to the left/right and up above, to better "understand" the simulated work.

Key "Performance Indicators" measure how quickly and how carefully the simulated work is performed including execution time, collisions, and criteria related to how well a trench is backfilled, is excavated, etc. With more than 20 Performance Indicators in all, feedback is diagnostic, instead of just a consolidated pass/fail score.


Simulation results are automatically saved, so trainees can progress at their own pace without trainer supervision. To simplify the record keeping, Simlog offers a database product called Simulation Manager, and the same database can be used with all of our Personal Simulators.


Simlog's Bulldozer simulation software can also be configured, in order to simulate the behavior of a wide variety of bulldozers. For example, you can use separate pedals for Decelerator and Brake, or just a single pedal that combines both functions, to reproduce the different pedal arrangements found in real bulldozers. You can also activate (or not) "counter rotation" so that when making a tight turn, the two crawler tracks will turn in opposite directions (or not), since this kind of control is typical of some, but not all, bulldozers. You can even set the blade functions to be faster or slower!


Low Total Cost of Ownership

Real affordability, that's how Simlog sets the standard in cost-effective simulation. The fact is, training with our Personal Simulator is a fraction of the cost of training with a real bulldozer, especially considering that even small accidents due to operator inexperience can mean thousands of dollars in replacement parts and downtime. And the purchase of the simulation software license is a one time fee, to keep the total cost of ownership as low as possible, with no restrictions on the number of people that you can train.


Quick Return on Investment

The software license, a one time fee, will pay for itself when you train just a handful of new operators. How? Consider the rising costs of putting a real bulldozer to work with a qualified instructor, the damage and downtime that inexperience can cause, and finally the risk of possible injury. That's why it just makes sense to prepare new operators with Simlog help.
