The company said its SubMonitor product was the result of customer feedback asking for solutions that deliver safety, real-time information, machine monitoring, efficiency optimisation and other features.

It then combined these features into a single touchscreen, which will be available initially for the manufacturer’s WA380 to WA500-8 range.

Assist systems on Komatsu wheeled loaders include an Extended Load-Pilot, a new rear-view Supervision system with high-definition camera and rear radar obstacle detection, and an Efficiency Module that takes into account different operating conditions.

Komatsu Europe said: “The 30 cm (12.1 in) ergonomic touchscreen provides easy, intuitive operation, reducing confusion and work interruptions.

“It is the base for a new era of machine features that deliver unrivalled control, comfort, and safety.”
