What is the VR-X SIM?

The VR-X-SIM is a Virtual Reality Excavation Simulator outfitted in a 34 ft. mobile vehicle. The VR-X-SIM allows for root cause analysis of excavation damages uncovered in a safe to fail environment.

This state of the art simulator will take participants through the entire process of an excavation.

What Does the VR-X-SIM Do?

The total immersive experience allows the excavator to feel as though they are operating a real backhoe.

Various scenarios highlight challenges that excavators face everyday:

Why Is it Important to Me?

Presently we measure and analyze damages reactively. This highly insightful training will allow us to get in front of the damage proactively.

Above all, we hope the New York 811 VR-X-SIM leads to a profound and necessary shift in the mindset of damage prevention, from a retrospective view centered on blame and liability, to a prospective view focussed on optimization, prevention, and education.

Developed from Aviation Technology

We can see in the future of a requirement for excavating companies and operators to be mandated to take simulation training as a prerequisite much like the FAA requires pilots to amass flight simulation time.
