How does an excavator guidance system work?

With a GPS and a digital guidance system you have setting out details with you all the time without the need for lasers and manual handling. GPS is often used on infrastructure jobs but is getting all the more usual on small projects such as land development and water and sewerage jobs.

GPS provides information about the machine's position to the system while the bucket's position is shown in the excavator guidance system. These values are then matched to the digital drawing and the display shows how the bucket moves in relation to the drawing. At the same time, the display provides clear depth information for the excavation.

Thus measurements can be made without the need to leave the cab or wait for manual setting out. The operator is always able to see the depth of the cutting line regardless of bucket position. This reduces the need for laser measurement as the excavator guidance system provides all the information the operator needs. Changes to settings are easily made directly in the cab.
