Laser Control of Earthmoving Equipment 840786

Propelled by the need for improved agricultural and construction productivity, industry has seen continued growth in the use of laser-based systems for blade control on earthmoving equipment. This growth has been supported by advances in micro-electronic and laser technology resulting in systems which offer increased performance and lower costs.
To fully utilize the capabilities and benefits of this control technology, the hydraulic, electrical and mounting interfaces between the machine and laser control system need to be more compatible. The use of closed center hydraulics and allocation of adequate cab space for controls are two areas of machine design that could simplify installation, improve system performance and reduce cost.
