Title
(EN) MACHINE CONTROL SYSTEM HAVING AUTONOMOUS RESOURCE QUEUING
(FR) SYSTÈME DE COMMANDE DE MACHINE À FILE D'ATTENTE DE RESSOURCE AUTONOME
Abstract
(EN)
A control system (30) is disclosed for use with a plurality of mobile machines operating at a worksite (10) having a resource (12a). The control system (30) may have a worksite controller (28) configured to divide a common travel path into a plurality of segments, including at least a spot segment (38) at the resource and a stage segment (40). The worksite (10) control may further be configured to receive a first input indicative of a desire for a first of the plurality of mobile machines to leave the spot segment (38), and to direct the first of the plurality of mobile machines out of the spot segment (38) based on the first input. The worksite controller (28) may be further configured to receive first location information for the first of the plurality of mobile machines, and to direct the second of the plurality of mobile machines from the stage segment (40) into the spot segment (38) based on the first location information.

L'invention concerne un système de commande (30) destiné être utilisé avec une pluralité de machines opérant sur un chantier (10) possédant une ressource (12a). Le système de commande (30) peut être doté d'un contrôleur de chantier (28) conçu pour diviser une voie de déplacement commune en une pluralité de segments, comprenant au moins un segment de point de chargement (38) au niveau de la ressource et un segment d'étape de chargement (40). La commande du chantier (10) peut également être conçue pour recevoir un premier signal indiquant le souhait qu'une première machine de la pluralité de machines mobiles quitte le segment de point de chargement (38) et pour diriger la première machine de la pluralité de machines mobiles à l'extérieur du segment de point de chargement (38) en fonction de la première entrée. Le contrôleur de chantier (28) peut également être conçu pour recevoir des premières informations d'emplacement pour la première machine de la pluralité de machines mobiles et pour diriger la seconde machine de la pluralité de machines mobiles du segment d'étape de chargement (40) jusqu'au segment de point de chargement (38) en fonction des premières informations d'emplacement.
