Autotronics Training Lab for Technicians


Project: AT-VDT

Degem Systems is a developer, producer and supplier of computer training and educational systems.


The major American automotive manufacturers desired a system which would provide hands-on training for high-quality autotronics technicians. They asked Degem Systems to create a computer-integrated laboratory for automotive training. Archer Software was invited by Degem to provide integrated software and hardware for motor mechanics emulators and to develop and test the software for the learning course.


Project features:  

Archer Software, together with Degem Systems,  developed the AT-2000 system for technical training in autotronics. The AT-2000 consists of the following computerized components linked by a local network:

  • individual student workstations
  • simulators and demonstrators
  • a real car with an integrated central instructor control station

Value delivered:

Archer Software provided project management, system analytics services and embedded programming services. As a result, a high-quality training simulator was created.

The simulator, which is integrated with a PC, represents a car dashboard.  It reacts to students' actions in a variety of car diagnostics and analyzes the student’s learning progress.

Tools and Technologies:

  • Visual Studio 2008,
  • MS. NET
  • C# v.3.5,
  • WinForms,
