Title: Device and method for determining the position of a road roller relative to a road finisher

Abstract: A device for determining the position of a road roller relative to a road finisher has a transceiver on the road roller for transmitting transmit signals and for receiving receive signals from at least two reference points on the road finisher spaced apart from each other. An evaluation unit determines the position of the road roller relative to the road finisher from the run time between transmitting the transmit signals and receiving the receive signals from the reference points.
