Versatile Prototype for Safety Training Across Seated Machines, Vehicles
Serious Labs unveiled its Universal Motion Base (UMB) for seated VR Heavy Equipment Simulators at CONEXPO-CON/AGG last month. The UMB has been designed as the common foundation for the development of additional VR equipment simulators such as skid steers, dozers, excavators, backhoes, and more.
The UMB’s design offers logical options for equipment controls, including a steering column or control handles, multiple pedal options and attachment points on either side of the operator to accommodate all future equipment types.
When the company develops additional equipment simulators on top of the UMB, they will tune the D-Box actuator system to match that equipment’s personality and feel to ensure it provides critical motion queuing. This will help to mitigate cybersickness, a problem found with many simulators on the market today.
The UMB’s potential applications are being offered both inside and out of the construction industry, demonstrating Serious Labs’ approach to tech development and trailblazing mentality. The company is currently in a pilot phase to develop forklift simulators with United Rentals built upon the UMB. They are also seeking additional partners in the construction industry, and are looking to expand beyond heavy equipment with active discussions in the commercial carrier industry.
