Abstract
This report describes research conducted to improve the performance of and then further field test draft power sensor (dps) equipment. Dps equipment enables a bulldozer operator to optimize a machine's work rate. Significant improvements were made in dps hardware, and extended field testing was conducted at two working strip mines. The report documents the increase of bulldozer work production by greater than 20 percent while using the dps compared with baseline work production without benefit of the dps.
