How It Works

Factory Integrated Sensor Package

Typical blade mounted components are replaced with factory installed cab top GNSS antenna, enhanced inertial measuring unit (IMU+), and stroke sensing hydraulic cylinders. Komatsu durability & quality with factory installation, integration.

Cab Top GNSS Antenna

No blade mounted GNSS antenna(s), cables to worry about damaging with cab top GNSS antenna. Reduced risk of theft due to low visibility as viewed from ground level.

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.

The current position of the blade 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 move the blade to the exact design grade.

Inside the cab a display with a simple interface for the operator to use to be more efficient and have grading information on parts of the project.

Benefits:

  • Complete grading operations faster
  • Fewer passes to finish grade
  • More efficient machine use…Less Rework, grade it once and move on
  • Greatly decrease the amount and waiting for grade stakes
  • Lower machine operating costs
  • Better Material Yields
  • Improve Fuel Efficiency
  • Improve operator performance

Enhanced Inertial Measuring Unit (IMU+)

Chassis mounted enhanced inertial measuring unit (IMU+) and intelligent logic provides for finish grade accuracy without blade mounted sensors. Positional updates up to 100Hz.

Stroke Sensing Hydraulic Cylinders

Robust stroke sensing hydraulic cylinders employ proven Komatsu sensor technologies for accurate finish grade performance. Stroke sensing angle cylinder allows machine control system to know the angle of the blade.

Operator Selectable Load Settings

Machine control load settings can be adjusted between presets to tailor response to material conditions. From dry loose sandy soils to wet heavy clay materials, system performance can be targeted accordingly.

Standard Touch Screen Control Box

Factory installed and features simple, easy to use operator interface. Mounted high for excellent visibility, viewing angle is adjustable per operator preference.
