Platform for crane simulation

A preliminary study investigated market possibilities, research questions, and development questions for traverse simulation and tower cranes.

The project that will be carried out has three parts:

Part 1: Build a demonstrator for marketing.  This will be a simple prototype to be able to work on the market before building a general Marketing simulator.

Part 2: Marketing covers only the market demand for a general simulator and does not cover specific simulators.

Part 3: Build a Marketing simulator that will function as a general platform for various types of simulator.

Crane simulation has many close links to the research project Real-time simulation of deformable materials. Crane simulation includes simulation of the crane’s rigid components (load-bearing parts, wheels, pulley blocks, travelling gear, etc) and deformable parts, ie crane. These are the most complicated to simulate and are the focus of the project research.
