The article proves the necessity of creatinga control system for the geohod. The scope of application of the geohod is described. The general scheme of the geohod with the main structural elements - cutter drum, head and tail sections, external mover - is described. Enlarged tasks that need to be addressed when creating a control system for the geohod are identified. The tasks of motion control of the geohod in the geomedium, improving the efficiency of the geohod, positioning the geohod in space, control of the support systems, diagnostics of the condition of the geohod, interaction of the control system with the operator are described. The directions of further Zresearch are identified: to formulate the requirements for the geohod control system; to analyze tasks solved by the geohod control system; develop the structure, mathematical models and algorithms for the operation of subsystems of the geohod control system; to develop software to simulate the interaction of subsystems of the geohod control system with each other, with the geomedium and the operator.
