SmartSimu Harvester Learning Environment Prototype


SmartSimu Harvester 2.5D
Variable displacement axial piston pump
Hydrostatic transmission

SmartSimu Harvester is prototype learning environment similar to Metviro. Both are learning enviroments for hydraulic and automation education in universities and vocational schools and they simulate forest machines. In SmartSimu we have harvester machine and in Metviro we have a forwarder machine. Focus of this project was in helping the learning to develop understanding of the inner workings of hydraulics systems and troubleshooting skills.

Features in SmartSimu Harvester include load sensing hydraulic diagram for work hydraulics, 3d virtual model and dynamic simulation model for harvester machine. New features are web based diagrams, electric and can diagrams, hydrostatic transmission and harvesterhead simulation.


SmartSimu Harvester requires the use of newish computer (desktop or laptop) with separate powerfull graphics card.
