Machine Control

Get more done - accurately and repeatably

Machine control increases productivity for seasoned operators and newer ones, too.

Predictable results for popular earthmoving and paving applications

Machine control can be implemented on a single machine, an entire fleet, or a combination of these. Simple systems may just monitor and enable a single machine, while more sophisticated platforms may allow networking of jobsites around the world — allowing managers to oversee projects dispersed over large territories in real time.

Options vary based on need. A contractor who only needs to know the height or depth of their bucket, blade, or screed may opt for a 2D system. These relatively inexpensive systems may use sonic sensors or rotating lasers and laser sensors to provide height and depth information.

Someone who needs height information along with the position of a machine on a jobsite may choose a 3D system. If an operator only needs to be told where to dig, a guidance (or indicate-only) system may be enough. If, however, they prefer a blade or bucket to follow the contour of a design surface by itself, a fully-controlled (or automatic) system may be more appropriate.

Other items to consider depend on jobsite conditions. If a job is under open skies where satellite access is a possibility, correction services, GPS, or GNSS are options that can provide position information. If the jobsite is obstructed by trees, buildings, tunnels or other structures, a robotic total station or LPS system may be a better alternative.
