Remote Controlled Equipment


The Ferguson rock slide is an active slide which closed down State Route 140. This route serves as an all-weather route to Yosemite National Park. As technology has improved, the Ferguson Rock Shed team has incorporated remote controlled equipment technology into the project to improve the safety of everyone working within the slide zone. This technology has improved safety by giving the contractor an option to control the equipment remotely when needed. Efficiency is also improved by switching over to remote from manned equipment when slide activity is above allowable thresholds for manned operations.
