Title (EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR CONTROLLING A MOBILE GROUND WORKING DEVICE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF DE COMMANDE D'UN ENGIN MOBILE DE TERRASSEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a method for controlling a mobile ground working device, such as a trailing suction hopper dredger or bulldozer. The method is characterized in that it comprises at least the steps, proceeding under the control of a central computer via a digital network, of A) presetting an optimum criterion; B) collecting information relating to the current state of the ground; C) collecting information relating to the current state of the ground working device, including at least its position; and D) calculating the control of the ground working device at which the optimum criterion is minimized. Using the invented method ground can be worked with an increased efficiency compared to the known method. The invention likewise relates to a computer program comprising program instructions for having a computer perform the method, and to a computer adapted to run the computer program.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de commande d'un engin mobile de terrassement, tel qu'une drague tractée à trémie d'aspiration ou un bulldozer. Le procédé est caractérisé en ce qu'il comporte au moins les étapes, réalisées sous le contrôle d'un ordinateur central via un réseau numérique, consistant à A) prédéfinir un critère d'optimisation ; B) recueillir des informations relatives à l'état actuel du sol ; C) recueillir des informations relatives à l'état actuel de l'engin de terrassement, comprenant au moins sa position ; et D) calculer la commande de l'engin de terrassement pour laquelle le critère d'optimisation est minimisé. À l'aide du procédé selon l'invention, il est possible d'effectuer des travaux de terrassement avec un rendement accru en comparaison du procédé connu. L'invention concerne de même un programme informatique comportant des instructions de programme servant à faire réaliser le procédé par un ordinateur, ainsi qu'un ordinateur prévu pour exécuter ledit programme informatique.
