Remote Controlled Dozer with Integrated Machine Control

Another technology innovation that has a safety component is Komatsu's latest large dozer that has both remote control and integrated machine control. Because it can be operated remotely, the operator is removed from harm's way where the dozer needs to operate under risky conditions, according to Peter Robson, Komatsu's director of Intelligent Machine Controls.  The automated control system can autonomously perform heavy dozing and fine grading tasks, making it unnecessary for the operator to be in the cab for many operations.

 

 

Here's a screen shot of the controller, showing the joysticks that can direct the dozer, raise and lower the blade and other functions. See the image below for a view of the remote radio controller.  Perhaps all that time on video games will pay off for budding heavy equipment operators.
