Komatsu Europe announces operator aid for wheeled loaders
20 January 2023
Komatsu Europe has introduced a new interface for wheeled loader operators to interact with the machine’s assist systems.
The company said its SubMonitor product was the result of customer feedback asking for solutions that deliver safety, real-time information, machine monitoring, efficiency optimisation and other features.
It then combined these features into a single touchscreen, which will be available initially for the manufacturer’s WA380 to WA500-8 range.
Assist systems on Komatsu wheeled loaders include an Extended Load-Pilot, a new rear-view Supervision system with high-definition camera and rear radar obstacle detection, and an Efficiency Module that takes into account different operating conditions.
Komatsu Europe said: “The 30 cm (12.1 in) ergonomic touchscreen provides easy, intuitive operation, reducing confusion and work interruptions.
“It is the base for a new era of machine features that deliver unrivalled control, comfort, and safety.”
