From machine control to robotics

The summit will address how construction equipment productivity can be improved using innovative technology, from partial machine control to fully autonomous operation.

 

The free-to-register event – Construction Technology Summit: from machine control to robotics, organised by International Construction and Construction Europe magazines – will address the full range of technologies available. These include machine control systems to improve operator productivity to more sophisticated technology incorporating artificial intelligence and robotics.

 

Speakers from some of the world’s most innovative equipment manufacturers, including Caterpillar and Volvo, will join with contractors and technology specialists to discuss the potential for technology to increase construction productivity.

 

Topics to be covered will include:

  • 2D and 3D machine control used on construction equipment
  • Real-world examples of machine control in action from contractors
  • Remote control of construction equipment
  • Fully automated construction equipment

 

Registration is now open
