Paving the Way for a Smarter Future
Vilvoorde, April 2019 — Inspired by the experience gathered over decades by the creation of new engineering skills, innovative services and dedicated customer support, Smart Construction will be released to the European market by Komatsu Europe.
Already successfully used in Japan on more than 7 000 jobsites, Smart Construction aims to guide construction companies of all sizes on their way to the digital transformation of their jobsites, and to support their customers’ entire earthmoving process.
Digital transformation is the most promising evolution currently faced by the construction industry. Thanks to technological advances such as the Internet of Things (IoT), it is now possible to bring, to an industry with an almost null productivity increase in the past 20 years, the benefits of real time jobsite information, as we would see in a manufacturing process.
This revolution, however, can bring its share of challenges for customers, and Komatsu's Smart Construction advisors are committed to help. While massively using the newest technology, Smart Construction primarily leans on a strong partnership between Komatsu and other companies in the sector. Everyone, including non-Komatsu customers, will benefit from this add-on solution.
