  • Publication number: 20200048861
    Abstract: Provided is a hydraulic excavator (1) that performs work by operating an arm (9) after moving a bucket (10) to a work start position. An operation determination section (81c) determines, based on an operation performed on an operation device, whether a front work device (1A) is engaged in a work preparation operation for moving the bucket to the work start position. When the operation determination section determines that the front work device is engaged in the work preparation operation at the time of operation of the operation device, an actuator control section (81) controls a bucket cylinder (7) such that the angle of a work tool with respect to a target surface coincides with a preset target angle (?TGT).

  • Patent number: 8640054
    Abstract: A controller for use by a user is utilized to select media for playback by an entertainment system. A display displays a hierarchy of levels of options to the user. One level of the hierarchy of levels is displayed at a time. A physical dial is utilized to select an option on the one level of the hierarchy of levels in response to a physical movement of the physical dial. A processing device updates the display of the hierarchy of levels in response to selection of the option by the user. The processing device performs one of the following in response to the user selecting the option on the one level: (a) displaying a higher level of the hierarchy of levels, or (b) generating an instruction to cause media corresponding to the option to be played by the entertainment system.
