Wirtgen Group Introduces AutoTrac for WR Series
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Wirtgen Group introduced the AutoTrac for the WR series cold recyclers and soil stabilizers during BAUMA 2022. By enabling precise, automatic steering, the AutoTrac system helps Wirtgen wheeled recyclers to achieve greater process efficiency and, as a result of this, a high degree of environmental compatibility, according to the manufacturer. The product steers the machine precisely within tolerances reckoned in centimeters on the basis of a previously calculated reference strip and a specified overlap of adjacent strips. AutoTrac relies, among other things, on various global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) for precise determination of the machine’s position and direction of travel. The system is operated from an additional control panel that also enables the operator to view information about the position of the machine and previously completed strips. Keeping to the pre-set overlaps reduces the consumption of binding agents, consumables and fuel, makes the carbon footprint smaller and shortens the project completion time. The outcome of this is increased process efficiency and, in consequence, greater cost-effectiveness and environmental compatibility.
