For a third consecutive year residents in the Fargo, N.D., and Moorhead, Minn., areas battled significant flooding. Bobcat Company and the local dealer, Bobcat of Fargo, provided machines to help transport pallets of sandbags for residents who needed to protect their homes with temporary dikes. Thankfully the temporary efforts kept the river from causing significant damage to the cities. Turn to the next page to see some of the many pictures of the flood fighting efforts.
Unmanned Bobcat systems helps Japan recover
Bobcat partnered with QinetiQ North America to turn Bobcat loaders into unmanned vehicles, with Robotic Appliqué Kits. The kits include seven cameras, night vision, thermal imagers, microphones, two-way radio systems and radiation sensors, and can be operated from more than a mile away. These vehicles and associated training were provided to aid in Japan's natural disaster recovery efforts this spring. The technology allowed Japan's response teams to accomplish critical and complex recovery tasks at a safer distance from hazardous debris and other dangerous conditions.
