SCRAPER for remote control of construction machines via augmented reality at Intermat
DIGGER DTR has designed and produced machines for use in the most dangerous and exposed areas of the world for the past 20 years and in almost 15 countries. Their priorities are the safety of the operators and the efficiency of their work.
The latest evolution of the DIGGER DTR technology is the SCRAPER remote control system for civil engineering applications in hazardous environments.
SCRAPER allows operators to remain safe while keeping the greatest freedom to manoeuvre, be it in a landslide, an area contaminated by chemical or radioactive substances, or in a situation with a high-risk of explosion.
Augmented reality goggles and various sensors allow the operator to see through the eyes of a stereo-camera installed in the machines passenger compartment.
With professional grade controllers, the remote machine operator can control all hydraulic functions of the machine from the comfort of a remote control station, which could be installed, for example, in a nearby vehicle.
The operational range of SCRAPER is 500 meters with a clear line of sight. As an option, it is possible to add a GPS or GPS-RTK geolocation system (accurate up to 2 cm).
DIGGER DTR designs and develops its products entirely in Tavannes, Switzerland and will be at INTERMAT Paris in hall 6 at stand 6C 052.
