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", "track type tractor") in a typical construction site.


Simply set up the simulator controls (see below for details), install the simulation software in English, French, or Spanish) on your desktop or laptop PC, and begin.


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.


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!


Software Pricing

The price of the commercial software license for Simlog's Bulldozer Personal Simulator is just USD$6,000. Since even small accidents due to inexperience can cost thousands of dollars in replacement parts and downtime, this is good value indeed, not to mention the improved training safety!


Note that pricing for the software licenses is "per PC", and this is a one time fee. There are no restrictions on the number of people that you can train with Simlog's help. To learn more, please contact Simlog.


Simulator Controls

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


If you are a Simlog customer, then you may be able to re-use the simulator controls that you already have, and just purchase the new Bulldozer simulation software license. To learn more, please contact Simlog.


Free Software Evaluation

Simlog offers free software evaluation to qualified heavy equipment industry professionals and educators. In Evaluation Mode, all of the simulator functionality can be experienced, but there are some limitations. To learn more, please refer to the additional details about product evaluation.
