Caterpillar's Computer Aided Earthmoving System (CAES) enables the re-engineering of landfill site planning and production processes from the machine cab. CAES is available on compactors and track-type tractors for use in landfills. When installed on a compactor, the system indicates to the operator when effective compaction has been achieved. Operators of track-type tractors receive real-time grade and slope information to better utilize cover soil, minimize airspace consumption and work more efficiently with the site plan to reduce costs. CAES also allows the identification of site-specific storage areas for materials such as hazardous waste, medical, industrial, organic and others.
