Simulation-Based Optimization of High-Performance Wheel Loading

  title={Simulation-Based Optimization of High-Performance Wheel Loading},
  author={Kojiro Aoshima and Martin Servin and Eddie Wadbro},
Having smart and autonomous earthmoving in mind, we explore high-performance wheel loading in a simulated environment. This paper introduces a wheel loader simulator that combines contacting 3D multibody dynamics with a hybrid continuum-particle terrain model, supporting realistic digging forces and soil displacements at real-time performance. A total of 270,000 simulations are run with different loading actions, pile slopes, and soil to analyze how they affect the loading performance. The…

A multiscale model of terrain dynamics for real-time earthmoving simulation

A multiscale model for real-time simulation of terrain dynamics is explored, which is a computationally efficient model for earthmoving operations that resolve the motion of the soil, using a fast iterative solver, and provide realistic forces and dynamic for the equipment, uses a direct solver for high numerical precision.

Productivity Improvement by Visualization of Construction Machinery Operation

Labor shortage has been a serious problem in worksites operating construction machineries. To secure the production amount while maintaining the quality, the productivity improvement through manpower

Towards Finding the Optimal Bucket Filling Strategy through Simulation

The results of research into how to utilize Discrete Element Method simulations in combination with Optimal Control to find the optimal bucket filling strategy are reported and what has been learned regarding preparing and conducting both simulations of bucket filling and physical testing for verification are discussed.

A study to compare trajectory generation algorithms for automatic bucket filling in wheel loaders

This paper studies how automatic bucket filling can be realised in wheel loaders using four algorithms for parametric generation of bucket trajectories developed and tuned using a simplistic static integration-based approach.

An Overview of Autonomous Loading of Bulk Material

Autonomous loading implies a fully automated scenario in which automated excavating machines, such as front-loaders, load themselves from a heap of bulk material and deliver to the dumping site. The

Admittance Control for Robotic Loading: Design and Experiments with a 1‐Tonne Loader and a 14‐Tonne Load‐Haul‐Dump Machine

The results presented in this paper suggest that the admittance-based ALC is more productive and consistent than manual operators, but that care should be taken when detecting entry into the rock pile.

The Development, Control and Operation of an Autonomous Robotic Excavator

The paper considers the development of the LUCIE programme since its inception and sets out in terms of the machine kinematics the evolution of the real-time control strategy from an implementation on a one-fifth scale model of a back-hoe arm to a full working system on a JCB801 360° tracked excavator.
