Title (EN) GPS REMOTELY GUIDED BRUSH CLEARING APPARATUS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE DEPLACER UNE MACHINE A DEBROUSSAILLER, A DECHIQUETER ET A DEBLAYER PILOTEE A DISTANCE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for navigating a remotely guided brush cutting, chipping and clearing apparatus (10) dependent upon remote positioning data and communication signals (46, 50), having an apparatus locator system (13) for determining the location of the apparatus and a guidance system for navigating and maintaining the apparatus in a desired direction of travel along a particular line of travel and for traversing a plurality of specific data points along the particular line of travel, relative to the surface of the earth.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant de déplacer une machine à débroussailler, à déchiqueter et à déblayer pilotée à distance, en fonction de données de positionnement à distance et de signaux de communication radio. Ledit appareil comporte un système de localisation de la machine destiné à déterminer l'emplacement de la machine et un système de guidage permettant de déplacer et de maintenir la machine dans une direction désirée de parcours le long d'une ligne particulière de parcours et permettant de suivre une pluralité de points de données spécifiques le long d'une ligne particulière de parcours par rapport à la surface terrestre.
