About the CompanyKilderry Instruments is a specialist industrial automation company providing solutions in robotics, process control, telemetry, radio systems, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, barcode systems and mobile automation systems. These solutions are used for bio gas plants, milk collection systems, tar / chipping trucks and refuse collection trucks. We offer PLC control systems, PC based control, Radio systems and SCADA data acquisition solutions using the most modern technology available from concept through to implementation. One of the products that Kilderry Instruments provide is a control system for automated processes on vehicles such as milk collection trucks, refuse collection trucks, etc. The overall objective of this project is the development of a modularised control system for road maintenance trucks that automates the dispensing of both tar and stone chips onto roads. The control system should have the capability to monitor and control the rate of flow and area covered of dispensed tar and stone chips, along with monitoring additional information such as status of all jets, shoots and sensors, truck speed via Radar sensing and current position via GPS tracking. Such monitoring will be available locally in the vehicle cab and remotely via a remote monitoring portal.
