After extensive review of the simulation industry, Komatsu entered into a license agreement with Immersive Technologies in 2006 (Renewed in 2011). Komatsu exclusively allows Immersive Technologies to use its proprietary machine information to ensure its simulators are engineered to the highest fidelity and realism.
As part of this agreement Komatsu exclusively recommend Immersive Technologies’ Advanced Equipment Simulators to Komatsu dealers and mining customers worldwide.
Immersive Technologies’ SimControl software includes a range of specific Komatsu 860E-1K and 860E-1KT operator errors for recording and measuring incorrect operator behaviours. In addition, the SimControl software includes Komatsu 860E-1K and 860E-1KT events which allow a trainer to initiate a machine fault or incident to train and assess an operator on how to respond appropriately. This combination of errors and events provide a mechanism to ensure operators are working at maximum efficiency while minimising equipment damage. It also ensures operators are able to avoid or respond correctly to hazards and potentially life threatening scenarios.
