Read about the different machines we have worked on.
We have successfully fitted our remote-control system to a wide range of Caterpillar excavators (324D, 312E, 320E, 325F, 336E, 301.8 NextGen, 310 NextGen, 320 NextGen, 336 NextGen) during the last 10 years. Both the original Caterpillar monitor and the Leica GPS monitor have been moved out of the operator-cabin to the remote operator chair - giving the operator full access to all features of the machine. Rototilt systems and accessories such as a hammer can also be used.
In 2019 we retrofitted a Volvo ECR25D with the Steer remote-control system. New electromagnetic valves had to be added to the machine due to pilot hydraulics being used on the machine. Two wide angle cameras in the front and the back ensures excellent visibility for the remote operator.
Two Caterpillar 730 articulated dump trucks (ADT) were fitted with our remote-control system in 2010. The ADT’s were also equipped with an autonomous control system, enabling them to drive by themselves (semi-autonomously) via pre-planned GPS routes.
John Deere 8360 R
In 2012 a John Deere 8260 R tractor was fitted with our remote-control system. It was also equipped with a PTH stone crusher - enabling it to crush roads for the Norwegian Armed Forces where there might be undetonated ammunition in the ground.
In 2017 we fitted a Volvo A40G FS articulated dump truck with the Steer remote control system. It was used in an area near Oslo Airport where explosives from second world war were removed from the ground. In 2019 we did the same on a A30G FS which was used on another site.
Caterpillar D6T Dozer
In 2018 we fitted a Caterpillar D6T with the Steer remote-control system. The remote operator chair was tailored with pedals and joysticks similar to the operators’ cabin - making the driving experience identical. Both the original Caterpillar monitor and the Trimble GPS monitor were moved out of the operators cabin and to the remote operator chair - giving the operator full access to all features of the machine. A 360 degree view-system were also installed, enabling the operator to have full control of the dozer´s surroundings.
