The fully autonomous Robomag tandem roller can be used completely independently in a defined work area. For loading or manual operation, the Robomag tandem roller can be operated simply by remote control.

The system obtains information on position, situation and movement using a combination of different technologies for spatial orientation,  environmental perception and environmental safety. A comprehensive safety concept with sensory environment recognition is used to prevent collisions.

In addition to the fully automatic mode, the Robomag also has the option to follow manually entered movement patterns so the roller can perform its task autonomously even with special compaction jobs. It goes without saying that the roller has a mechanical emergency stop mechanism in every mode. 

Tried and tested Bomag technology also on board

While the tandem roller travels autonomously, Bomag's well-known Asphalt Manager 2 takes care of the intelligent active control and monitoring of the compaction power. At the same time, Asphalt Manager 2 ensures that the compaction performance is comprehensively and transparently documented.

Robomag is a pure technology study and serves Bomag as a vision for the not so far future. At bauma 2019, visitors were able to experience Robomag working autonomously in a live demonstration.
