Assistance Systems on Hydraulic Excavators and CO
Reduction - Is There Any Correlation?
Concerning the limitation of greenhouse gases, the Kyoto protocol in 1997defined the first hard facts. A steady increase in the number of participating states as well as a rigorous focus on emission limits - even if some important countries did not sign or withdraw from the protocol - led to high pressure on existing technologies.
The presentation therefore will start by discussing the four pillars of possible CO2 reduction options and will lead to the question why there is a correlation to assistance systems on hydraulic excavators.
Finally innovative excavator assistance systems and their support to the objectives on CO2 reduction will be presented.
