How Does Intelligent Machine Control Work?

 A machine using the GPS antenna and receiver will track multiple GPS satellite signals. 

The Base Station is set to a “known” point on the jobsite and then broadcasts the “correction” information to the machine using a radio signal.

The “correction” fixes the satellite inherent errors and uses the machine settings to generate an accurate current position of the blade or bucket.

The current position of the blade or bucket is compared to the 3D model of the project. Cut or fill value is displayed for the operator. Also an automatic hydraulic interface can accurately position to the exact design grade.

Inside the cab, a display with a simple interface provides the operator with accurate grading information on specific sections of the work, for more efficiency.

Intelligent Machine Control Benefits

  • Use machine control in rough cut or finish grade
  • Complete grading operations faster
  • More efficient machine use
  • Greatly decrease the amount and waiting for grade stakes
  • Lower machine operating costs
  • Better material yields
  • Improve fuel efficiency
  • Improve operator performance
