SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE YOUR COST OF ERTMS TRAINING AND IMPACT ON OPERATIONS WITH MOBILE ON-SITE SIMULATORS AND OPTIONAL TRAINING IN AN AMPHITHEATRE SIMULATION TRAINING CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE WE COMBINE SIMULATION WITH HUMAN FACTORS ENGINEERING AND HUMAN SYSTEMS INTEGRATION TO GUARENTEE THE SAFEST, MOST COST EFFECTIVE, INTEGRATION OF ERTMS, SAFE INTEGRATION OF ERTMS & OPERATION OF TRADITIONAL SYSTEM AT SAME TIME SAFE TRANSITION FROM TRADITIONAL SYSTEM TO ERTMS CERTIFICATION GLT CAN PROVIDE ON-SITE ERTMS TRAINING 24X7
GUIDING LIGHTS TECHNOLOGY AMPHITHEATRE SIMULATION TRAINING CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE & MOBILE DRIVER TRAINING SIMULATORS COMBNED WITH HUMAN FACTORS ENGINEERING & HUMAN SYSTEMS INTEGR ATION PROVIDE BENEFITS THAT INCLUDE ; SAFE, RAPID LEARNING, CERTIFICATION AND INTEGRATION OF ERTMS SAFE OPERATION OF TRADITIONAL SYSTEM AND ERTMS AT HE SAME TIME SAFE TRANSITION FROM TRADITIONAL SYSTEM TO ERTMS EVALUATION, TRAINING & CERTIFACTION TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS TRAINING & CERTIFICATION ON NEW ROLLIING STOCK REDUCTION OF ENERGY, FUEL, BRAKE AND MAINTENACE COSTS
PICTURE THIS ! Drivers being trained in Amphitheatre Simulation Training Centre of Excellence on ERTMS, with Simulators that exactly model the handling & performance characteristics of current or new rolling stock
GLT MOBILE SIMULATORS CAN PROVIDE ON SITE ERTMS TRAINING 24X7 AT UK TOC LOCATIONS – ELIMINATING TRAVEL COSTS AND TAKING DRIVERS OUT OF SERVICE
SINCE 2006, GLT MOBILE SIMULATOSR HAVE OPERATED 24X7 IN EXTREME HEAT AND COLD AND HAVE ON-BOARD POWER
The tractor (lorry) as well as the outside of the trailer can be customized with company logos and training safety mission objectives, ERTMS etc., and promoting the Amphitheatre Simulation Training Centre of Excellence
Simulation has long been used for training Astronauts, the Military, and in safety critical fields like Aviation, Super Tanker Shipping and Nuclear Power. Since 1987, GLT has spearheaded this calibre of Simulation Technology to the UK and North America Rail Industry, enabling locomotive engineers to be evaluated and trained to airline pilots standards of certification.
Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and Human Systems Integration (HSI) To safely and rapidly integrate ERTMS, along with Simulation, GLT can provide HFE and HSI to optimize Training, Safety, and Integration of New Technologies and Systems. HFE and HSI, traditionally used by the U.S. Military, avoids unforeseen design errors and reduces the risk of integrating new systems
GLT MOBILE SIMULATOR BEING TEST DRIVEN BY CUSTOMER CEO AND BODS PRIOR TO DELIVERY
Demonstration of the Instructors Control Panel and reporting of Drivers performance against an international benchmark standard of competency
Sign off and acceptance of GLT`s Mobile Simulator by customers CEO and BOD. It has operated flawlessly in extreme heat and winter conditions 24X7 for 5 years
TOTAL REALISM AND REPLICATION To optimize realism the Simulators use actual train controls and gauges. We can accurately replicate the handling and performance characteristics of any train model, from any manufacturer in the world, in any language!
PICTURE THIS!! AUTUMN + DRIVING INTO SUN = EXTREME DANGER! Autumn + driving into the sun = Extreme Danger. Drivers have to multi- task and stay focused. The Simulator is the only safe way to evaluate, train and certify drivers to react safely to these conditions by acquiring multi- tasking skills.
AUTUMN = DANGER Customers world-wide know that Autumn = danger when residue from leafs makes rails as slippery as a car driving on ice! It is a major cause of SPADs (Signals Passed at Danger). The Simulator with HFE and HSI is the safest way to train drivers to handle these conditions to ensure Passenger Safety.
Mobile Simulator has a classroom for 10 drivers to observe driver in the simulator with instructor, and or, use CBT systems. To increase training capacity, the 180 degree field-of-view can be transmitted to 60`plasma screens in a remote classroom.
SUMMARY OF BENEFITS OF GLT SIMULATORS WITH HFE & HSI TECHNOLOGIES Combining Simulation and CBT with Human Factors Engineering and Human Systems Integration, will optimize training and provide; SAFE, RAPID LEARNING, CERTIFICATION AND INTEGRATION OF ERTMS SAFE OPERATION OF TRADITIONAL AND ERTMS SYSTEMS SAFE TRANSITION FROM TRADITIONAL SYSTEM TO ERTMS EVALUATION, TRAINING, CERITIFACTION TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS TRAINING & CERTIFICATION ON NEW ROLLIING STOCK REDUCTION OF ENERGY & FUEL COSTS REDUCTION OF BRAKE SYSTEM WEAR & MAINTENANCE COSTS LEARNING NEW TRACTION (ROLLING STOCK) OPERATING NEW TRAIN CONTROL SYSTEMS NEW ROUTE FAMILIARIZATION ENERGY EFFICUENT OPERATION (FUEL ECONOMY) EVALUATE, TRAIN & CERTIFY NEW DRIVERS TO INTERNATION STANDARDS ASSIST ATTAIN ON TIME SCHEDULES THROUGH FAUL ANALYSIS
BENEFITS OF GLT SIMULATORS WITH HFE & HSI TECHNOLOGIES Facilitates incremental profit margins, increased efficiencies Expedites Return on ``Investment`` in ERTMS & New Rolling Stock Smoother, rapid ``Integration of `ERTMS and Rolling Stock Optimises training & safety, reducing accidents Lowers costs for Training, reduces driver turn-over Reduces Energy and Fuel usage Reduces brake system wear and maintenance cost (see next slide) Simulators specified by GLT are all upgradeable, protecting customers investment in simulation
Mobile Driver Training Simulator – Braking benefits Major benefits can be achieved on Brakes equipment in three key areas; 1.Wear and tear on Brake Discs 2.Wear and tear Brake Actuators 3.Wear and tear on Brake Pads This is achieved by training drivers on state of the art simulators with HFE and HSI to use and adopt appropriate driver behaviour / technique(s) utilising manufactures / OEM software as designed. Post run analysis can be produced to show the effects of good / inappropriate driver behaviour / technique. Additional Benefits 1.Reduce operator costs 2.Life cycle cost benefits for manufacturers and operators 3.Manufacturers benefit on price per kilometre / mile contracts increases profit potential due to reduced wear. 4.Manufacturers being seen as added value and solution provider to industry. It does what its says on the tin. 5.Removal of risk to manufacturers, risk of operator(s) claims for premature wear and tear of components due to inappropriate driver behaviour / technique
Benefits of Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and Human Systems Integration (HSI) HFE & HSI is an Engineering Science traditionally used by the Military to avoid unforeseen Design and Human Error. It is proven to have saved hundreds of millions of dollars. GLT is the only company making it available to the rail industry, combined with simulation, to optimize training, safety and Best-Practises. Benefits include; Eliminates unforeseen or inherent design errors in drivers cab or rail car layout Critiques engineering design at development stages prior to final sign of and acceptance Support of engineer cognitive models of consist, track, and operating rules. Control and display design and layout. - Cab environment. Reduce the likelihood of, and costs associated with, system upgrades and midcourse design changes. Support of engineer population to see, reach, fit, and work postures.
Benefits of Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and Human Systems Integration (HSI) Reduce system lifecycle costs Cognitive demands including attention, vigilance, planning, decision making, workload. Crew, yard, and dispatch communication and coordination. Fatigue studies (sustained attention - reaction-time - decision-making – vigilance). Support of task time and timing. Support of sustained operations and fitness for duty. Effective integration of automation. Increase Railroad Safety. Improve operator performance and operational efficiency. Increase user acceptance.
SUMMARY OF BENEFITS FOR ERTMS The combination of Mobile Simulators for on-site TOC Training, with fixed-site Simulators in an Amphitheatre Simulation Training Centre of Excellence, combined with Human Factors Engineering and Human Systems Integration technologies, will achieve the mission objective for ERTMS, SAFE, RAPID LEARNING, CERTIFICATION AND INTEGRATION OF ERTMS TO ALL UK TOCS SAFE INTEGRATION OF ERTMS & OPERATION OF TRADITIONAL SYSTEM AT SAME TIME SAFE TRANSITION FROM TRADITIONAL SYSTEM TO ERTMS
