Diesel locomotive simulators to increase safety
Bangladesh Railway's locomotive drivers are to be trained by state-of-the-art motion simulators developed by Lander. The project is being funded by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
The contract awarded to Lander includes the design, development, supply and maintenance of two diesel locomotive simulators that will transmit highly realistic sensations to the drivers thanks to the motion platforms with six degrees of freedom.
The custom made high-tech simulators will run on Dhaka-Chittagong and Dhaka-Khulna virtual railway lines. The scope of the contract also includes the construction of the building to house the simulators. (ben)
