TranSim™ Truck Driving Simulator

Accelerate knowledge, skills, and experience of commercial vehicle drivers.
TranSim Truck Driving Simulator

Best-in-class simulation-based training system for commercial truck drivers.

Provides hands-on, experiential training for commercial vehicle drivers, offering experience without risks to people or equipment

The modern, ergonomic design of the TranSim™ driving simulator replicates a commercial vehicle driving compartment.

TranSim™ accurately simulates the vehicle’s physical and functional characteristics. It also adjusts to the size, weight, turning radius, tire and suspension characteristics for each vehicle that it simulates.

Truck Driving Simulator Benefits

Simulation training allows practice of critical decision-making skills and reinforces positive decision making, situation and spacial awareness in a realistic, risk-free environment.

Practical Training

Enhances initial driver training, periodic training and driver assessments allowing you to conduct practical real world training, on different terrains and for different road and atmospheric conditions.

Reduce Accidents

Our customers have significantly reduced preventable accidents and the severity of the accidents.

Improve Fuel Efficiency

Lower operational costs through better fuel efficiency. Realize fuel savings through better fuel management training.

Reduces Vehicle Costs

Minimize maintenance and damage to company-owned vehicles. Training on the simulator keeps your vehicles on the road and earning revenue.

Improve Driver Retention

Complete, consistent, objective feedback on performance gives drivers the skills and confidence to drive more safely and more efficiently.

Flexible Delivery Options

Include fixed site installation in a building or fully mobile training unit in a trailer or truck. Trailer options available to outfit in a mobile driver training unit complete with on-site classroom and instructors.

The simulators are a safe and cost-effective training tool to get our equipment operators thinking about the upcoming winter season [and] give our new operators hands-on experience that they otherwise wouldn’t get until the snow is on the ground.”

Billie MillerVirginia DOT Safety Officer

Has the training been beneficial? With regard to operator safety, I can tell you that this winter DPW has logged about 34,000 hours in the snow program, probably 90 percent of it driver time, and we haven’t had a single reported accident since the training.

I have not had one truck in the shop for transmission repair since 2006. We used to have a lot of transmission repairs from teaching people how to shift the gears out on the training runway. Now that students learn to shift on a simulator first, we don’t have them grinding gears and tearing up transmissions.

Travis DunlapNMDOT Training Academy Director

Our analysis indicated that those drivers in Salt Lake City with the lowest pre-training fuel efficiency benefited most from training, with over 7% improvement in fuel efficiency.

David StrayerUniversity of Utah

This training tool is receiving nothing but 5 stars for its benefits.
