FRCC Students Complete Rollover Simulator Project

Four Rivers Career Center students recently completed a year-long project that will help local authorities and possibly save lives.

A number of students helped make a rollover simulator, which will be given to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.

The rollover simulator is a truck cab that spins on its own axis at 35 MPH to simulate a rollover crash. Cloth dummies are placed inside the simulator and are used to illustrate the effects of a rollover crash on unrestrained occupants.

“It was a collaborative effort between a lot of different students and programs here,” said Collision Repair Instructor Robert Schulze. “We started working on it last October and into November and had it almost completed by the end of the school year. We finished it up this year, so the entire project took about a year to complete. The students did an excellent job.”

Working on the project were FRCC students from the machine tool, welding, automotive technology, automotive collision repair and graphic communications programs.

Photos of the rollover simulator are below.
