  • Patent number: 9957929
    Abstract: A system for capturing cleaner intake air for use within an air intake system of a work vehicle may generally include an intake duct defining an inlet for receiving air and at least one actuator associated with the intake duct. The actuator(s) may be configured to move at least a portion of the intake duct so as to adjust a position of the inlet relative to a fixed reference location on the work vehicle. In addition, the system may include at least one sensor configured to monitor an air-related parameter associated with the work vehicle and a controller communicatively coupled to the actuator(s) and the sensor(s). The controller may be configured to actively control the operation of the actuator(s) such that the position of the inlet is adjusted based on the air-related parameter so as to reduce an amount of particulates received within the intake duct.
