Hemisphere GPS has launched the Earthworks Business Unit to design and manufacture products for the construction market. The Earthworks product line is focused on machine guidance and control of earth-moving machinery.
The Earthworks X200 excavator machine guidance system is Hemisphere GPS’s first product targeted at improving operator accuracy simplifying machine operations and reducing the amount of excavation re-work. Using the Hemisphere Crescent® Vector™ GPS sensor and other precision sensors the X200 guides the operator with a graphic and numeric display of the excavator bucket relative to the desired grade.
Hemisphere GPS is in the process of signing Earthworks distribution agreements in the US and Canada and is currently seeking more product dealers.
