CM Labs Ships MasterCab, Full-immersion Port Equipment Simulator

CM Labs Simulations, leading vendor for simulation-based training in the construction and ports industries, today announced that CM Labs’ MasterCab, a full-immersion training simulator powered by the most realistic port equipment simulation on the market today, is available to ship. The MasterCab is a comprehensive training solution that develops operational skills, muscle memory, and spatial intelligence. This allows port terminals to safely and effectively assess and train new operators, and prepare personnel for new equipment and processes.

The MasterCab is CM Labs’ features 10 high-definition displays, providing full field-of-view perspective, driven by industry-leading simulation of operating conditions, machine response and the port environment.

With professional-grade seating, controls, and pedals, as well as high-fidelity audio and a motion system expandable to 6 Degrees of Freedom (DOF), the MasterCab reproduces the sensory cues experienced by operators on the real equipment, which enables a far more fluid transition from training to real operations.

“We are delivering on the promise to release a fully immersive simulation training experience with the MasterCab,” said Devon Van de Kletersteeg, CM Labs’ product manager, ports. “With the MasterCab, Port Terminal managers and operators can experience more effective training and skills development, and ultimately realize a faster return on their investment.”

The MasterCab provides training that is available 24/7, and runs a complete catalog of quay-side and yard-side equipment training packs (STS, MHC, SPC, ITV, RTG, ECH, Reach Stacker, Straddle Carrier, Forklift), as well as custom simulations.

Thanks to the real-time training data captured by the MasterCab, instructors can monitor, assess, and report on all sessions from the Instructor Station provided with the solution.
