We study the problem to teleoperate a Caterpillar 973c track loader. The track loader and a system for teleoperation are described. A tested and working kinematic model used for dead reckoning is also presented. Track speed sensors combined with a rate gyro are used as input to the model. The model shows good results when tested and compared to a GPS navigation system. Fig. 1. A teleoperated Caterpillar 973c track loader.
