What is driving the urge to automate functions in construction equipment?
What needs to happen to make this possible?
What technology is driving increased mobile machine autonomy?
When will we have autonomous construction machines?
Will autonomous machines be safer?
Safety could be the number one advantage of autonomous machines. Today one of the highest causes of construction deaths is people being struck by construction equipment. That’s not okay, so we can create ‘guardian angel’ features that work in cooperation with human operators and simply say: ‘I’m just not going to let you hit anyone’.
