Remote Operating Station (ROS)

Train operators to proficiency ahead of remote crane delivery.

Unique ROS simulator with OEM controls systems

The market’s only Remote Operating Station (ROS) desk simulator that integrates with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) control systems.

With the advent of remote cranes and other technology associated with terminal automation, operators need to develop new skills – as well as new reactions – in order to handle unforeseen events safely and effectively.

CM Labs’ Remote Operating Station Training Simulator gives trainees a unique opportunity to experience realistic crane operations and the control room environment, prior to equipment commissioning, or while the real equipment is being used for production.

Remote Operating Station

Training Tool features

CM Labs is the only simulator on the market that accurately replicates machine stability—providing real-world training opportunities to help reduce the risk of accidents and improve operator efficiency.

Improve training efficiency and reduce workflow bottlenecks

Remote STS, RMG, and RTG crane operations are gaining popularity in container terminals as an alternative that improves safety, operating ergonomics, and operator productivity.

By bringing simulation into the loop at the training stage, port terminals can eliminate errors, reduce operator incidents, and quickly identify and solve potential workflow gaps to ensure high productivity levels.

With the optional Instructor Operating Station (IOS), trainers can launch exercises for different controls and scenarios, inject faults such as snags, corner cast failures, inclement weather or disabled cameras, and engage in review sessions using the solution’s record-and-playback feature.

Remote Operating Station Controls

A Complete Training Solution

The ROS training solution is delivered as a fully functional operating desk with joysticks, buttons, a full-screen layout, and OEM controls. It simulates all crane functions, camera displays, and automated safety functions, as well as the terminal’s container management system.

It also includes a control system (with ship profiling system and other operator assist functions such as smart slowdown or anti-collision systems), industrial-grade computers to run the simulation software, and all the camera views available to the operator at actual ROS stations.

Remote Operating Station for Port Training

A proven engineering solution for OEMs

The fidelity of the ROS desk simulation is such that OEMs can also use the simulator during the product development process to validate PLC logic.

With its ability to integrate with existing control systems, the ROS simulator is not just a training solution – it is also a powerful engineering tool for control system development, workstation ergonomics, and more. By reducing reliance on costly physical prototypes, innovation can be brought to market even faster.
