In the past 15 years Corys and Sym2B have delivered turn-key simulators and participated in collaborative R&D projects addressing bus and truck driver training.
This project, supported by the Imaginove cluster which Sym2B is a member, consisted in developing a new vehicle dynamics model. Our software workshop can now simulate any type of ground wheeled vehicle, on road, off-road, and on rail.
FUI Programme, call for proposals N°12, France.
In partnership with the companies: SBT (Lyon), and QOVEO (Lyon), and the laboratories: LIG/Multicom (Grenoble) and LUTIN (Paris)
The goal of the project was to define a stress index for the trainees, especially for simulator drivers, by combining physiological measures (pupil diameter) and subjective questionnaires on a tablet PC. In addition, a Serious Game, based on breath control, has been developed by SBT in order to put trainees in an optimal state for learning, before and after they drive on the simulator.
Lifelong Learning Programme, Europe - Leonardo da Vinci
In partnership with SFS Dortmund, TT-C, BBZ Nordhausen (Germany) Team Simrac and TTS (Finland)
Development of simulators for a variety of training situations has made remarkable technical advances in recent years. The project SIMTEB analyses, develops and transfers existing training programs to simulators for bus drivers training, focusing on safety und sustainability.
For VAG Nürnberg, public transport operator of the city of Nuremberg, Germany
The first high-end bus simulator in Germany. It complies with the German translation for buses of the European Directive 2003/59 (type B of the VDV recommendations, Mitteilungen n°9041). This simulator, installed in a trailer, can be used either in a mobile configuration (groups of 4 drivers) or linked to a trainer/observers station installed in a classroom (groups up to 12 drivers).
In partnership with SEMITAG, Société d’Economie Mixte des Transports de l’Agglomération de Grenoble, public transport operator of the city of Grenoble, France
This project delivers the first bus simulator using our dedicated ECOBUS software workshop. Possibility to drive an Irisbus Agora S in Grenoble downtown.
Programme PREDIT 2, Ministry of Research, France
In partnership with INRETS-LPC, Arcueil, France (psychology of the development for road safety), the CRPCC laboratory, Université de Bretagne, France (psychology of the development for learning), LAMIH laboratory, Valenciennes, France (Biomechanics and Artificial Intelligence) and with the contribution of the DSCR, road safety council, Paris, France
This project aims at making the young pedestrians aware of road safety. The children have to reach a given location, forcing them to face road traffic, especially when crossing the streets. They are assessed both on their route choice and on the quality of their visual search for information before crossing.
European programme EUCLID RTP11.2, in partnership with TNO, the Netherlands, and STN Atlas, Germany
This project aims at studying new cost-effective hardware and software technologies, applicable to simulation for driver training of various ground military vehicles.
