Abstract: In this work, an estimation of the center of mass of a telescopic handler is introduced, with the aim of reducing the machine control system working load. In fact, the use of the simplified model presented in this paper would allow the control system to predict in real-time a forthcoming unsteady condition of the machine, increasing the workersí safety. The work started with the development of a simulation model, considering the machine as a system of interconnected rigid bodies. By means of this model, the position of the machine center of mass during the operative phase is studied and a simplified expression of its coordinates is obtained. Finally, the results achieved by means of the new equations are compared with the ones calculated with the simulation model.
