iDig: Real Time Grade Control System

Utilizing wireless angle sensors at key locations on the machine, this system displays the current height of the bucket edge to the operator in real time. Working from a fixed benchmark or referencing a rotating laser beam, the system assists the operator in reaching the desired depth. It is capable of holding a level grade as well as any desired angle of slope.
