GradeStar 3D Version 4.2GradeStar 3D Version 4.2 now provides GPS- and TPS-based machine-control capability for dozers as well as motor graders. Position data from the sensor is transmitted via a radio link to the onboard computer, where the position, tilt and rotation of the blade are compared with a stored digital terrain model. The computer then calculates deviations in real time to control the blade position.
