Desiro Driver's Cab
Train Cabin Simulator
UI/UX Design, 3D Design, 2D Art

I played a significant role in developing a virtual replica of the Desiro electric train cabin simulator. My responsibilities included interface design, 3D modeling, and 2D element creation, all aimed at enhancing user experience and achieving a realistic virtual representation of the actual training simulator.

The simulator panel replicates all functional elements found in the real trainer, ensuring precise control through pop-up menus with scales or labels for levers and switches. Additionally, the screens are fully functional, displaying real-time data that can be interacted with. At the top, there are buttons for switching between cameras.

Switching cameras allows you to view other control elements, such as those positioned behind on the wall or beneath the control console.

Being a true virtual replica of the trainer, you can also 'step out' of the cabin virtually and access control elements from the outside.

In the real trainer, there is an external touchscreen panel for controlling elements located in other cars, and this functionality is faithfully replicated in the virtual simulation.

In this scenario, you can observe real-time status updates for each door in the other train cars. For instance, trainees can practice using manual door opening or emergency brake control. 3D elements and objects are highlighted and animated to provide a dynamic and immersive learning experience.
