Transurb Collaborating with UCL to Develop Web-Based Simulator

Transurb Simulation is currently participating in the development of a ‘web-based simulator’ in collaboration with the catholic University of Louvain (UCL), Multitel and Defimedia thanks to the Walloon Region.

The innovative aspect of simulator lies in its accessibility and its quick availability on the web. Thereby, the online solution addresses the shortcomings of classic simulators which limit the number of simultaneous trainees, require infrastructures and involve a certain budget. can indeed be accessible online from any type of computer and significantly reduces the price of training.

Moreover, its online access lets trainees learn independently and with flexibility, wherever and whenever they have time to spend on training. An intelligent tutor will be configured to guide users and allow them to learn without instructor supervision.

This programme is perfectly in line with the evolutions of the railway sector: training centres are more open to new technologies and IT training solutions; the demand of independent learning increases; ERTMS furthers the standardisation of training solutions for a high number of customers. Transurb is thus committed to encouraging projects.

To succeed, Logistics in Wallonia, the Competitiveness Cluster dedicated to the transportation, logistics and mobility sector in Wallonia, helped us get funds from the Walloon Region for research and development. Our partners on this programme aiming to improve the experience of self-training are the catholic University of Louvain (UCL), Multitel and Defimedia.
