Tag: machine control systems

In civil engineering, machine control is used to accurately position earthwork machinery based on 3D design models and GPS systems, and thus aid machine operators to e.g. control the position of a road grader’s blade. Many machine control systems utilize the Real Time Kinematic (RTK) system to improve the positioning accuracy.

Katie Pullen, brand marketing manager for CASE Construction Equipment, says there’s an important reason why telematics is gaining traction with backhoe loaders: manufacturers have made it easier for owners to acquire and operators to use the systems.

Excavators and Robotics

Excavators and Robotics

Many owners of grading and excavation contracting companies concur: finding enough skilled employees to execute jobs continues to be difficult.

The answer to that challenge may lie in more robotic-like machines. Machines that do more on their own—without human intervention—will require fewer employees. On the other hand, robotics may even attract
