Construction Equipment and Mining

Off-road construction and mining equipment is quickly evolving from hydraulic joystick control to control-by-wire. This evolution allows on-board intelligent controls to improve accuracy through automated control and avoid dangerous situations with envelope control all while improving productivity. Additionally, demands to reduce operator fatigue, improve ergonomics and add expert control algorithms provide opportunities for Servocontrols & MTS sensors to close the loop in steering, cab or seat suspension and implement control.
