A gantry crane is a support structure which is able to span the length of the dock. It has a mobile platform attached, called a spreader. It is able to pick up from two to four 20 feet containers at a time.
The gantry crane simulator is used to train operators of this type of cranes. With this simulator, operators can be trained to control any risk situation in a safe environment that replicates real life situations like accidents, weather changes, and equipment damage, so that they learn the protocols to follow in each of them.
The operator can manipulate the controls, feel movement, and hear sounds while operating the simulator. Also, visual and audio effects replicate a working environment as if he were in a real cabin.
The simulator has a cabin with real controls, located on a mechanical system that provides the sensations of movement, and a system providing visual and audio effects.
