Overview

Train Simulator is a state-of-the-art training facility having the most similar environment to the real situations such as weather, operating track, and signaling systems so as for train drivers to improve their driving skills and to practice dealing with the contingent problems.
DAEATI has succeeded in providing a lot of Train Simulator to the fields of railway industry.
Especially, Korea Transportation Safety Authority and Korail Human Resources Development Institute are operating the simulators for the purpose of examination for the Railway Driver’s License.

Training Simulator Composition

railway_simulator2

 Full Type Simulator(FTS)
FTS provides realistic training environment to the drivers.
The simulator has a driver’s cab controlled by a single instructor station and visual system, displaying 3D CGI on the 3ch cylindrical wide screen, 5.1ch surround sound system and 3axis motion system.
Most of the equipment/instruments in the cab are equipped as real i.e actual train panels and controllers interface with simulation computers.
It realizes the same functions with the actual train through accurate train simulation techniques and enables the fault handling practice by the control desk.
 Personal Type Simulator(PTS)
PTS is designed for self-training.
It consists of a similar driver’s control desk with relevant devices, visual system displaying 3D CGI on the monitor and 2.1ch stereo audio system.
The other gauges or instrument are embodied by graphics or touch screen computer.
 Computer Aided Instruction(CAI or CBT)
CAI is an integrated education system utilizing computerized materials such as sounds, videos and animations rather text-based media.
With the help of CAI, instructors and trainees can have both theoretical and practical training in more interactive and effective ways.
