  • Patent number: 9943023
    Abstract: A lift control apparatus includes a height sensor that outputs a height detection signal after a height of a ground work apparatus is detected. The ground work apparatus is coupled to a traveling work vehicle via a lift mechanism. An upper limit manager sets an upper limit position of the ground work apparatus based on an operation input signal from an input operation device for an upper limit setting USD. A setting prohibitor prohibits, when the upper limit position being set by the operation input signal is lower than the height of the ground work apparatus based on the height detection signal, the setting of the upper limit position from the operation input signal, and setting the upper limit position to the height of the ground work apparatus based on the height detection signal.

  • Publication number: 20160031447
    Abstract: A driving support system includes a device control unit that outputs operation control signals to a travel operation device causing a traveling vehicle body to travel and a work operation device causing a ground work apparatus to operate. A recorder records control data in execution processing order as a work/travel sequence. A reproducer reads out the control data recorded by the recorder and transmits the control data to the device control unit. A screen processor converts the control data for each execution processing unit to an icon and displays in a display a work/travel sequence screen displaying the icon in the execution processing order. The system manages a plurality of the work/travel sequences on the same work/travel sequence screen.
