Doron Precision Systems Selects Vortex Studio to Power Next Generation Simulators

Doron leverages Vortex® Studio’s earthmoving and vehicle simulation and visualisation capabilities to deliver enhanced training solutions.

Montreal, November 28, 2016 – CM Labs Simulations, a global provider of simulation and visualisation solutions for crew training and virtual equipment prototyping, announced today that Doron Precision Systems, Inc. has selected Vortex Studio for use as the development platform powering its next generation operator training simulators.

Doron provides a broad line of off-the-shelf simulator systems for training law enforcement, fire and EMS, commercial truck, transit bus, and novice drivers. Now, with CM Labs’ Vortex Studio, Doron is extending their product portfolio to include training solutions for the mining sector.

Vortex Studio replaces legacy simulation and visualisation tools with an easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain platform that Doron plans to eventually integrate into all its training products, in order to speed development time and reduce complexity.

“Before switching to Vortex Studio, we spent a lot of time managing our simulation tools.” said Graham Upton, Doron’s Director of Business Development. “With Vortex Studio, we have a complete platform to create simulation content and power our simulators. That means we can focus on delivering the best training solutions to our customers.”

The Vortex Studio platform includes industry-leading deformable terrain simulation capabilities that are powered by CM Labs’ decades of research into earth-moving simulation. This feature was a critical factor in Doron’s decision to select Vortex Studio, as it allowed them to expand their simulation capabilities and develop further into the mining segment.

Doron is also leveraging Vortex Studio’s engineering-grade vehicle simulation engine, which captures the real behaviour of vehicles and equipment, to enhance the learning experience provided by their training solutions portfolio.

“Vortex Studio makes it easier to provide simulation-based training for expensive or high-risk operations,” commented Arnold Free, CM Labs Simulations’ Chief Commercial Officer. “We are proud to partner with Doron as they continue to develop their mining sector product line and lead the market in driver training.”
