    Custom Training Simulator Design

    Tailored Solutions for Ground Vehicle and Maritime Equipment Training and Virtual Prototyping.

Entrust your project to simulation experts

CM Labs has been delivering solutions that define what a training simulator can be for over 20 years. Our track record of designing and building complete solutions for ground vehicle, lifting and earthmoving equipment, and even maritime equipment operator training provides us with the depth of experience needed to help you achieve your vision.


True-to-life simulation

Our simulators are powered by Vortex Studio, an acclaimed physics-based real-time simulation platform that delivers unparalleled realism and immersion. This ensures skills learned in the classroom will transfer directly to live equipment.

  • Precise simulation of contacts and collisions with objects and environment
  • Full modelling of powertrain and hydraulic components
  • Simulation of hoisting, tethering and cable systems
  • Maritime environment simulation with wave scale models
  • Modelling of deformable terrain and earthmoving interactions

Fully immersive training solution

Whether you are looking to outfit an entire classrom with desktop-based solutions, or you need a single specialised simulator, we know how to design and build highly-engaging solutions that maximise learning and immersion.

  • Scale from single-screen configurations to blended projection systems
  • Leverage authentic industry-standard or OEM control sets
  • Integrate equipment PLCs and control systems
  • Deliver a full motion experience using motion platform

Turnkey solutions

Custom simulation projects come with risks, and the technology is rapidly evolving. Our field-tested methodology ensures your final solution meets your goals and budget.

  • ISO-certified project management process
  • Development of virtual equipment and environments
