The need for wood is increasing and the size of foresting machines follows. A direct result is the damage of soils and the uselessness of large forestry areas. Timber Ant describes a soil-protecting alternative, which is based on a particularly autonomous process. Therefor, the master vehicle is loading the timber right at the felling spot and handing it over to the transport vehicle. By driving unloaded only, soil impact of the master vehicle is decreased. Further, the autonomous transport vehicle is forwarding the timber with its stress-reducing TrackPads. The result is a reduction of the soil impact and the required time by it’s half.
