Logic7D Excavate provides accurate, real-time positioning of the excavator's bucket teeth. Powered by a GPS receiver that determines position and orientation of the machine and a touch-screen display, the system links a series of sensors through a controller-area network bus to compute the position of bucket teeth with accuracy. Mounting hardware is easy to remove for security. The operating system allows third-party software integration.
