Technology News Tracker: Construction Industry Becomes More Automated

The number of autonomous machines in construction applications continues to grow.

Automation continues to grow in the construction industry as a means of improving safety, efficiency and productivity.

Doosan Infracore recently introduced Concept X, its vision for the future of construction sites which operate free of human personnel.

Concept X is a comprehensive control solution which combines the use of 3D drone scanning, topographical data, and autonomous equipment.

Sensors mounted on the machines create situational awareness to prevent accidents, enabling each machine in an operation to monitor its surroundings in real time.

Automated system provider Semcon has most recently applied its technology to a compactor.

Semcon's autonomous solution establishes the route to be traveled via GPS positioning.

This ensures the machine follows the same path for each and every pass to accurately and efficiently complete its task.
