Connected Worksite – The networked construction site of the future

The transmission of information from and to the construction machine becomes more and more important nowadays to avoid shutdown time and to tighten the construction progress.

The following questions are raised before the operation:

  • How do changes in the project get from the office to the construction machine promptly?
  • How do measurements from the construction machine get to the office without a delay?
  • How do GPS-controls work without an own GPS-reference station?
  • How is the progress of the production doing on the construction site right now?

The solution:A bidirectional data exchange between construction machine and office.Connected Worksite is the process-orientated technology by Caterpillar and Trimble for the networking of a fleet of machines with the construction site management and central departments. Many Cat machines are already today equipped for already existing applications such as the fleet management-system Vision Link, the Cat machine control and for the upcoming integration of further functions. The partner Trimble is the worldwide market leader for positioning and surveying technologies and for construction site management. By the tight cooperation with Trimble, Caterpillar aligns its machine program already now consequently with Connected Worksite with the aim to increase the productivity of the customers.
