New Flyer Introduces New Electric-Bus Simulator

New Flyer of America Inc. has introduced a bus simulator at its Vehicle Innovation Center in Anniston, AL, that uses full-scale original equipment manufacturer components to simulate the operation of the company’s zero-emission, battery-electric Xcelsior CHARGE™ public transit bus.

FAAC Incorporated designed and installed the simulator using a 180-degree screen display and 4K (high-definition) projection system, Other amenities include a working door and ramp, lights, mirrors, air-brake system and adjustable driver’s seat inside a full-scale front cabin.

The simulator’s main objective is to support driver training specific to regenerative braking, an energy-saving technique that can provide operational improvements including extended range, reduced energy consumption and less brake system maintenance.
