Machine Control and GPS—Key to Efficient Site Operations

Modern earthmoving operations require a contradictory balance. They must combine the brute force of massive earthmoving in order to maximize productivity, with the finesse of accurate control so as to minimize the cost of unnecessary soil removal. The brute force part is easy to visualize in any piece of heavy equipment
