As a means to improve vehicle performance and productivity, the forestry sector has since the early 1990s been a forerunner in the adaptation of advanced mobile automation and HMI technology. In the big forestry markets, great efforts have been made to create an integrated value chain, from the forest raw material to the paper and sawmill industries. A forest machine is today a mobile production plant that is operated in 3 or 4 shifts with a duty cycle of up to 6000 hours per annum. In this context, machine uptime is critical.
