Transurb Simulator Installation

Transurb Simulator Installation

A new partnership between Transurb and Layer 2 Intelligence has given L2iQ the opportunity to deliver the installation, configuration and testing/commissioning of driver training simulators for Sydney Trains. These simulators are used in the earlier stages of train driver training to give drivers the opportunity to gain familiarity with desk layouts, routes and driving conditions.

In total, the team from Layer 2 Intelligence visited 7 Sydney sites, completely stripping the existing, redundant, train simulator system and replacing it with subsystem components including pc’s, routers, displays, controls, PLC, wiring and software, giving us the opportunity to apply our extensive experience IT, Telecommunications, Electrical, PLC’s and Project Management, whilst working closely with our colleagues at Transurb in Belgium.

This was a great experience and opportunity which allowed our team to own the upgrade from start to finish, whilst getting the satisfaction of test driving a train at the end of it all – we hope Rob never has another opportunity to test the emergency brake on a train.

Thank you Rob Gregorio, Neale Guy, and Ben Jackson for your contributions and thank you to our colleagues at Transurb, Belgium.
