Tadano GR-1000XL

Rough Terrain Crane

ITIVR worked with the Tadano team to bring the GR-XL Rough Terrain Series to the ITIVR Simulation Library with this 100-ton model capable of 154 feet of boom length. As with all ITIVR crane models, the operator is immersed in an identical 3D replica of the actual Tadano cab.

Link-Belt 218 HSL

Lattice Boom Crawler Crane

The 110-ton crawler model capable of 154 feet of main boom length is a solid model for operator screening, training and assessment. The Link-Belt team and ITIVR made this model available for the community in the Spring of 2017 with over 10 hours of scenarios and various joystick configurations.

Aerial Work Platform
The first equipment simulator of many, the award-winning AWP VR Simulator brings users to competency faster and more comprehensively than any other training format before. Operators gain an appreciation of the risk of working at-heights on this boom lift and walk away prepared to qualify immediately on the real machine.

frequently asked questions

How is ITI VR different from other crane simulators?

The current generation of screen-based simulators have two main drawbacks. (1) High cost due to hardware requirements, and (2) Poor user experience, mostly attributed to a lack of realism when compared to operating a real crane.

ITI VR has:

  • Low up-front capital costs
  • Unmatched user experience/realism
  • Subscription pricing based on actual usage
How many crane types/models are currently in the mobile crane simulator?
  • Two Crane Types:
    • 100 Ton Class Lattice Boom Crawler Crane
    • 100 Ton Class Hydraulic Boom Rough Terrain Crane
  • Two Crane Models
    • Link-Belt 218HSL 110 Ton Lattice Boom Crawler
    • Tadano GR-1000XL Hydraulic Boom Rough Terrain
  • Nine additional VR simulators are planned for release in 2018
Is separate hardware required for every crane type?
The same computer and headset can be used for all crane types, and access to all training simulations is included in every subscription. Custom hand controlls can be ordered for each crane type if so-desired.
Can any computer run the VR simulator?

No, the ITI VR Laptop (included in all hardware packages), is a cutting edge Asus GL502VS-DS71 ROG Stirx gaming laptop with the following specifications:

  • Processor (CPU): Intel Kabylake i7-7700HQ
  • Graphics Card (GPU): NVIDIA GTX 1070
  • Memory (RAM): 16GB DDR4
  • Primary Drive (SSD): 128 GB SSD OS drive
  • Secondary Drive (HDD): 1TB HD
