Machine control is used to accurately position machinery based on GNSS systems and 3D design models. These systems aid the machine operators and improve efficiency, productivity, accuracy and safety. This, of course, also means that it brings cost-savings.
Several machine control systems use the Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) to improve positioning accuracy for streamlining the different construction site workflows. They are available for various machines, for example, pavers, graders, excavators, soil and asphalt compactors, tractors, trimmers, milling machines and forest machines. Machine control systems can provide a visual guide, or they can do the work automatically.
SATEL technology as a part of machine control systems
SATEL radio technology is perfect for machine control applications. It is both mission-critical and cost-effective, and it ensures availability even in areas with limited coverage or no coverage at all.
