CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 attendees will be among the first to experience BOMAG’s visionary look at single drum roller autonomous operation. The ROBOMAG BW 177 single drum roller on display in BOMAG booth C30221 at the show features all the subsystem technologies required to test and develop a fully autonomous roller. Machine and technology design allows it to flexibly operate through both manual and autonomous control, and its compact design affords efficient work at confined jobsites.
The ROBOMAG BW 177 features an Automation Interface, which equips the roller for close-range remote control. This affords the operator complete roller remote operation in view but from a safe distance to achieve desired compaction results. Its object detection system offers an additional level of protection with remote operation. Both the radio remote control and object detection are currently available for select BOMAG conventional single drum rollers and will be expanded to additional models in the future.
