INTERACTIVE DRIVING SIMULATOR BROUGHT IN BY AIR21
For the first time in the country, an interactive driving simulator touches down.
Logistics solutions provider AIR21 and the Academy of Developmental Logistics partner with L-3 Technologies, a US based technology provider for military and commercial platforms, to bring in the country’s first TransSimTM VS6 Driver Training Simulator.
The state-of-the-art TranSimTM Simulator is a replica of an actual commercial vehicle driving compartment that accurately simulates the vehicle’s physical and functional characteristics. It provides hands-on, experiential training for commercial drivers, offering experience without risks to people or equipment.
“Our goal is to provide drivers, and eventually all transport operators across the Philippines, with an enticing alternative to an actual commercial driving experience without endangering lives, equipment, and property,” said Samuel Bautista, director of AIR21 Academy of Developmental Logistics.
This technology can record the driver’s reactions and response times, and provide after-action reviews that point out performance improvement areas for each driver. This training approach should improve critical driving skills, enhance decision-making abilities, and increase the safety of staff and the areas where AIR21 operates.
As an innovative logistics leader, AIR21 “continually searches for the best technologies, both here and abroad, to deliver better service while considering greener options.” With around 400 company-owned vehicles to maintain and operate on a daily basis, this upgrade will result in efficient fuel consumption and road safety.
