Intelligent assistance system
There's no terrain more varied than a ski slope - sometimes hilly, sometimes flat, but always uneven. PistenBully's new SlopeTracer is an assistance system that guarantees perfect contour matching of the tiller. It carefully follows the terrain, automatically correcting for irregularities - completely attuned to the driver's wishes. This benefits slope quality.
Made possible by the angle of inclination
The aims of the developers at Kässbohrer were very clear: the tiller should sit perfectly on the surface under all chassis and terrain conditions - simultaneously delivering consistent tiller depth. A sensitive angle and acceleration sensor at the front of the PistenBully registers the vehicle position and uses this to calculate a surface model. This provides the input used to regulate tiller depth. The steering follows the surface precisely under the driver's control.
