crane camera systems in the past as a proactive,

accident prevention tool.”

Ben Windass, managing director and joint owner of

BlokCam Ltd said:

“We are at the dawn of a new era of widespread

uptake of crane camera systems to the point

where I envisage their use will soon become

ubiquitous and even a specified requirement on

certain projects,”

"The first BlokCam Pro wireless repeater

camera system to be installed to a mobile tele-

scopic crane is a landmark moment."

Remote Control

System For

Cat Compact

Equipment

TORC Robotics and Caterpillar

announce the avail-

ability of the RemoteTask remote control system

for Cat D Series Skid Steer, Multi Terrain and

Compact Track Loaders.

The RemoteTask system enables operators to

precisely control the machines from outside the cab—as

far away as 1,000 ft (300 m) and at a safe distance from

potentially hazardous tasks and environments.

“Providing customers a solution to remove the

operator from harm’s way while operating Cat

compact loaders in certain applications further

supports Caterpillar’s commitment to safety,”

stated Jeff Griffith, Sr. Market Professional for

Caterpillar.

The controls feature virtually no lag in machine re-

sponse time. With it, the remote operator’s performance

is as fast and smooth as in-cab operation. The intuitive

remote control interface is designed to closely mimic

in-cab machine controls, creating an easy operator tran-

sition from manual to remote operation.

Transforming a machine is simple. It only takes about

an hour for a Cat dealer to install the system.

With the sys-

tem installed,

the machine can

transition from

manual to remote

mode at the turn

of a key switch.

The system is completely transferable between units.

The portable, yet durable, console allows the oper-

ator to move as needed for good lines of sight.

RemoteTask can be integrated into 16 models of Cat

D Series Skid Steer, Multi Terrain and Compact Track

Loaders and can control more than 200 work tools with

all hydraulic functions controlled via the remote

system.
