What Kind Of Machines Need 2D Project Monitoring? Typically bulk earthmoving machines On and Off Road Dump Trucks Scrapers Wheeled Loaders
VisionLink Terminology Project Boundary –Limits of the project –All events at project level are counted and reported once Site Boundary –The same event at site level may be counted in multiple overlapping Site boundaries –Can be one of the following categories Cut Zone Fill Zone Stockpile Borrow Pit Dump Zone Generic Site
VisionLink Terminology Candidate –A load or dump event generated automatically by an asset entering a valid site boundary category and stopping –The definition of when an asset is stopped is configurable Below a speed threshold for a period of time Valid site boundary categories to generate a load or dump candidate are –Borrow Pit, Cut Zone, Dump Zone, Fill Zone and Stockpile. The asset needs to be inside a valid site boundary category in order to create a stop/start event i.e. a dump A stop outside a valid site boundary category (as defined above) including inside the project boundary will not generate a candidate Load and dump candidates will not cross daily reporting, they have to occur on the same day
Proximity-based loads 2D PM setting for loader / hauler with radius Load Count Report shows loading asset More accurate than site-only load calculation Gives user more confidence in load statistics accuracy Combinations: Excavator – Truck Loader – Truck Dozer – Scraper Requires SNM940 on loading asset
VisionLink Terminology Load (or Cut) –Event where material is loaded onto an asset –May include a switched event Dump (or Fill) –Event where material is dumped from an asset –May include a switched event Load Count –A unit of measure encompassing a load event to a Dump event
VisionLink Terminology Cycle A unit of measure encompassing a load event in a site boundary to the next load event in the same site boundary. (A cycle may contain many load counts)
VisionLink Terminology Cut Local: (to this site) –Quantity of material that has been loaded (or cut) then dumped (or filled) within the same site Cut Outgoing: (to another site) –Quantity of material that has been loaded (or cut) from one site and then dumped (or filled) in another site.
VisionLink Terminology Cut: Undefined Site –Quantity of material that has been loaded (or cut) in one site and then dumped (or filled) into an undefined area that is not within a site or project boundary
VisionLink Terminology Fill Local: (from this site) –Quantity of material that has been dumped (or filled) when loaded (or cut) from the same site. Fill Incoming: (from another site) –Quantity of material that has been dumped (or filled) when loaded (or cut) from another site.
VisionLink Terminology Fill: Undefined Site –Quantity of material that has been dumped (or filled) when loaded (or cut) from an undefined area that is not within a site or project boundary.
VisionLink Terminology Time Per Load –Time for a load count i.e. between a load and a subsequent dump event –Average time per load is the sum of times per load divided by the number of loads
VisionLink Terminology Load Time –Time between site entry and site exit events with a single load event in between –Uses innermost site time to populate outer sites if sites are nested –Average loading time is the sum of load times divided by the number of loads
VisionLink Terminology Haul Time –Time between a site exit from a load site to the dump event time (with no loads or dumps in between) Haul Distance –Distance between a site exit from a load site to the dump event
VisionLink Terminology Cycle Time –Times between consecutive loads in the same site. (A cycle may contain many load counts) Cycle Distance –Distance travelled between consecutive loads in the same site. (A cycle may contain many load counts)
VisionLink Terminology Loads per Hour (within a site) –Load events / (working time + idle time) Volume per Hour (within a site) –(Load events x volume per load) / (working time + idle time)
What are the components of a “Cycle” or “Load” Load time Haul (loaded) Dump is a completed load Haul return (unloaded) is a completed cycle
How To Measure Load Time Using a manual switch in the cab Using a site entry and site exit event to a site boundary (cut zone type)
How To Measure Dump Time Using a switch on the machine – e.g. a dump switch on the load bed of the machine Using a Site Entry and Site Exit event to a Site Boundary (Fill Zone Type)
Setting Up A Haul Route Project Boundary Cut Zone Site Boundary Fill Zone Site Boundaries Site Boundary (Haul 1) Haul 1 = 1x Load = 1x Cycle Report on the Haul Site Boundary Use the Cut Zone and Fill Zone Site Boundaries for Events and Times Site Boundary (Haul 2)
Methods Available Switch to switch Site to site Site to switch Switch to site Note: –Site boundaries are still used to determine load time and dump time
2D Project Monitoring Example
2D Project Monitoring Concept Trimble Building Site project Used Business Center – HCE Site Mass Haul module Building –Overexcavation 1.5m –Cut first then backfill –Cut goes into fill area North part of job –Cut - backfills building –Residual goes to fill Borrow from offsite –Meets deficit volume
Define Project Boundary Define Cut and Fill Zones Define Borrow Pits & Waste Sites Define Haul Zones Haul 1 – Overexcavate Bldg Haul 2 – Backfill Bldg Haul 3 – Borrow From Offsite
Mass Haul Planning Take Zone 4 – Zone 5 Cut in Zone 4 = 8941 yd 3 Utilize a single CAT 627G Scraper Bowl capacity m 3 Target Hauls = 8941/15 = 596 (Target Cycle Count) Average Haul Distance = 428m (Target Cycle Distance = 856m) Average Haul Speed = 30kmh Average Haul Time = 1.72 min Average Load Time = 0.4 min Average Dump Time = 0.6 min Total Cycle Time = 2.72 min Total Haul Time required = hrs = ~3.5 days Process does not require 3D Machine Control Just an estimate of machine capacity Knowing the Target Metrics allows us to Monitor effectively
VisionLink Monitored Site Data Entry Zone 4 Cut feeds Zone 1 and Zone 5 Zone 5 Fill is fed by Zones 4,3,5,2 and borrow from offsite
Manage Monitored Sites Monitored sites belong to a project Only sites that belong to the currently selected project should be placed on the project dashboard Each project has its own dashboard of monitored sites Sites that are shared across multiple projects, e.g. a waste site or borrow pit can be monitored on all of the projects that they are serving as required If you want the monitored site on the dashboard then click the dashboard icon
2D Project Monitoring Set Up and Operation
Project Settings – 2D Monitoring Set up each of the machines you want to monitor in 2D. Assets must be setup before they submit 2D data to the Project.
Setting Up an Asset for 2D Monitoring Asset 2D settings can be edited throughout the project. Cost rates, load count targets and load volumes can be changed and this will retrospectively update project data.
Monitored Sites Dashboards All projects automatically get a 2D project dashboard Create monitored sites and add up to 18 to the dashboard The project counts all loads/dumps that fall within the project boundary
Asset Load Details Loads –Number of loads moved Average time per load –Average time from load to dump Average loading time –Average time in the load site boundary (entry to exit time) Average haul time (site exit from load site to dump event) –Average time from site exit of Load site to dump event Volume/load –Manually set value Total volume –Number of loads x volume/load value
Asset Cycle Details Cycles –Number of cycles run Average cycle time –Average time elapsed between consecutive loads in the same site Average cycle distance –Average distance travelled between consecutive loads in the same site Average cost / cycle –Average cost of working + idle time / number of cycles run
Detailed Track Plot for 2D PM Loads Select an asset in load or cycle detail to display Shows average load path in blue Shows deviations in red (time, distance, or location) Callout shows reason for deviation and statistics Customer can easily find inefficiencies and lost profit

3D Project Monitoring Plan Provides an overview of your project status from a remote location at any time –Site office –Head office –Supervisors truck –Mobile device (iPad, iPhone) – VisionLink Mobile Map views of –Compaction coverage, pass counts, CMV / MDP values, temperature Aggregated view from all compactors and for all layers –Surface elevation, cut / fill to selected designs Aggregated view from all 3D machines on the project Profile views cut through multiple surfaces Volume calculations from measured surface to design or between measured surfaces at different times
3D Project Monitoring
Each time a machine blade, bucket or roller passes over the center of a 34cm grid cell the following information is captured in a TAG file –Which design file was in use on the machine –Elevation –A pass count update –The CMV – Compaction Meter Value Measured from a sensor on the drum of the compactor –The date and time of the cell data update –The machine information (device ID ~ machine) –The machines forward or reverse motion –The machines automatic or manual status The TAG file is packaged and sent to Connected Community once every 5 minutes
3D Project Monitoring Connected Community TAG Production Server VisionLink VisionLink QueryProduction Server Response
3D Project Monitoring in VisionLink TAG Files -Must have Blade on Ground (BOG) set to Yes -TAG file must be within VisionLink project boundary -TAG file must be within project date and time
3D Project Monitoring in VisionLink Administration –Projects Create a new project wizard –Imports Design and Surveyed Surfaces (TTM) Linework (DXF) Site boundaries (DXF) Alignments (SVL) Import calibrations (DC, CAL) Mobile Linework (KML, KMZ) When an SNM940 is reporting into VisionLink with the 3D Project Monitoring Option enabled, the Project Tab appears
3D Project Monitoring VisionLink allows the definition of multiple projects The project is defined by a project boundary Each project has its own production model TAG files with data inside the project boundary are automatically imported The production model is a 4D database –XYZ plus time and other attributes VisionLink can query any surface, volume or compaction surface at any date or time
3D Project Monitoring Comprises two main operational functions –Volumes and Surfaces –Compaction These used to be known as Compaction Manager and Volumes Manager they are now both part of 3D Project Monitoring
Volumes Provides surfaces of machine data that can be used to display –Coverage maps –Elevation maps –Cut/fill maps (measured compared to design) Compute volumes between measured and design data Compute volumes between measured data at different times Blade On Ground (BOG) on graders and dozers for better data Trimble SCS900 Site Controller Software topo surfaces can be loaded into VisionLink for a composite project surface (rover + machine)
Elevation Profiles First Pass = First Cut in Existing Ground Last Pass = Current Ground
Compaction Tracks compaction by layer Pass counts –Monitors pass count over entire surface from one or multiple machines against a target pass count value Highlights over- or under-compaction areas CMV values –Monitors the Compaction Meter Values (CMV) over the entire surface from one or multiple machines Highlights compaction inconsistencies such as soft spots Machine Drive Power (MDP) values If pass count and CMV / MDP consistency is good then surface is likely to pass inspection Temperature mapping values (asphalt compaction)
Compaction Intelligently monitors compaction over the entire surface area being compacted More reliable than a few spot checks using a nuclear densometer or core sample Provides an aggregated view of compaction from all machines on all layers of the surface being constructed On Design, Build, Fund, Operate projects – consistent compaction over entire surface will increase life of surface, reduce maintenance costs and improve ride smoothness Can also use to verify elevations and cut / fill

Importing and Viewing Files Designs, linework and alignments once imported are rendered and displayed in the Map View.
Importing and Viewing Files All imported files (except coordinate systems) are listed in the Manage Imports screen. They can be hidden, deleted or contrasted.
Coverage Coverage is simply every cell an asset has driven over or covered Or surveyed surface as imported from time stamped TTM file
Elevation Elevation is the elevation range an asset was at while passing over the cell. Elevation data can be profiled using a slicer tool
Cut/Fill Selecting a design surface to compare to production data in terms of cut and fill
CMV Summary Compaction Meter Value – For compactors only to measure CMV per cell compared to machine specified targets
MDP Summary Machine Drive Power – For new Cat compactors only to measure MDP per cell compared to machine specified targets

Project Settings Project settings are the means to change color palettes, apply user specified compaction override values, edit coordinate systems or add shrinkage and bulking to volume calculations.
Project Settings Production data such as pass counts and CMV values can contain machine targets, project settings can override these values with user specified targets, this will update the production within the project
Project Settings Production data such as CMV summary and MDP summary can be analysed and viewed on a top layer only basis or all layers basis. If you select all layers a cell showing the ‘compacted’ colors indicates that all layers in that area meet the CMV/target lift thickness.
