System For Automated Excavation Planning And Control

View page
US Patent:
8639393, Jan 28, 2014
Filed:
Aug 4, 2011
Appl. No.:
13/198334
Inventors:
Michael A. Taylor - Pittsburgh PA,
Jean-Jacques Clar - Edelstein IL,
Thandava K. Edara - Peoria IL,
Timothy J. Felty - East Peoria IL,
Troy K. Becicka - Dunlap IL,
Assignee:
Caterpillar Inc. - Peoria IL
International Classification:
G05D 1/00
G06F 7/00
US Classification:
701 2, 701 23, 701 25, 701 314
Abstract:
A control system is disclosed for a mobile excavation machine operating at a worksite. The control system may have a locating device configured to generate a first signal indicative of a position of the mobile excavation machine, and a position sensor configured to generate a second signal indicative of a position of a work tool. The control system may also have an offboard planner configured to receive a first input indicative of a characteristic of an intended work area, a second input indicative of a characteristic of the mobile excavation machine, and a third input indicative of a desired change in the intended work area. The offboard planner may also be configured to generate an excavation plan based on the first, second, and third inputs. The control system may further have a controller configured to autonomously control the mobile excavation machine based on the first and second signals and based on the excavation plan.

Implement Induced Machine Pitch Detection

US Patent:
2012013, May 24, 2012
Filed:
Nov 23, 2010
Appl. No.:
12/953125
Inventors:
Paroma Banerjee - Peoria IL,
Troy Becicka - Dunlap IL,
Assignee:
CATERPILLAR INC. - Peoria IL
International Classification:
G06F 7/00
US Classification:
701 50
Abstract:
A system for detecting pitch of a machine caused by operation of a machine implement is provided. The system may include an inclination sensor for sensing inclination of the machine and producing inclination data representing inclination of the machine over time. An acceleration sensor for sensing acceleration of the machine and producing acceleration data representing acceleration of the machine over time can be provided. A controller in communication with the inclination and acceleration sensors respectively receives the inclination and acceleration data. The controller can be configured to process the inclination data so as to detect a sudden inclination change and to process the acceleration data so as to detect a sudden acceleration change. The controller can be further configured to determine a machine pitch condition upon concurrently detecting a sudden inclination change and a sudden acceleration change.

US Patent:
2014003, Jan 30, 2014
Filed:
Jul 30, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/561788
Inventors:
Kenneth L. Stratton - Dunlap IL,
Troy K. Becicka - Sahuarita AZ,
Michael Taylor - Swissvale PA,
Thandava K. Edara - Peoria IL,
Assignee:
CATERPILLAR INC. - Peoria IL
International Classification:
E02F 9/20
E02F 9/24
E02F 9/26
US Classification:
701 23, 701 339, 701 329
Abstract:
A system for automated control of a machine having a ground engaging work implement includes an implement load sensor system. A controller determines a change in terrain based at least in part upon a change in the load on the ground engaging work implement. If the change in terrain exceeds a threshold, the controller generates an alert command signal. A method is also provided.

US Patent:
2014003, Jan 30, 2014
Filed:
Jul 30, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/561813
Inventors:
Kenneth L. Stratton - Dunlap IL,
Troy Becicka - Sahuarita AZ,
Michael Taylor - Swissvale PA,
Thandava K. Edara - Peoria IL,
Assignee:
CATERPILLAR INC. - Peoria IL
International Classification:
E02F 9/20
G06F 17/00
US Classification:
701 50
Abstract:
A system for modifying a boundary of operation of a machine has a change in terrain sensor system. A controller determines a change in terrain based at least in part upon a change in terrain signal. If the change in terrain exceeds a threshold, the controller modifies the boundary of operation of the machine. A method is also provided.

System And Method For Operating A Machine

US Patent:
2014003, Jan 30, 2014
Filed:
Jul 30, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/561833
Inventors:
Kenneth L. Stratton - Dunlap IL,
Troy K. Becicka - Sahuarita AZ,
Michael Taylor - Swissvale PA,
Thandava K. Edara - Peoria IL,
Assignee:
CATERPILLAR INC. - Peoria IL
International Classification:
G01B 3/00
US Classification:
702 33
Abstract:
A system for automated control of a machine within a work area having a crest includes a first data map and a second data map. At least one sensor system generates operating data indicative of a change in terrain and a controller compares the operating data to the first data map while the machine is within a zone adjacent the crest. If the change in terrain exceeds a threshold, the controller generates an alert command signal. A method is also provided.
