Control of an Excavator Arm

In this project, the arm of a bucket excavator was equipped with a computer-controllable interface. In the context of the project, a control system for hydraulic cylinders was developed. Furthermore, algorithms for the distributed control approaches were designed and optimized for a Volvo bucket excavator.

On the basis of the electrified prototype the Robotics Research Lab at the University of Kaiserslautern conducts research in the domains environment recognition and autonomous landscaping.
