Trimble reveals its focus for ConExpo
By Andy Brown27 February 2023
Trimble will highlight solutions focused on connected construction, compact machines and environmental sustainability at ConExpo, Las Vegas, US. Trimble product experts will provide technology demonstrations, answer questions and discuss technology solutions at the event.
Trimble connected construction technology streamlines communication and collaboration throughout the construction lifecycle. The company says that its technology connects people, machines, and projects to deliver real-time data to infrastructure owners, engineering firms and civil contractors.
At the show the technology giant will display a new purpose-built machine guidance solution designed to be versatile, portable and easy to use. The new solution is said to give small site and utility contractors an entry-point into construction technology that has not existed before.
Another highlight is said to be the Trimble Earthworks Machine Control platform, and specifically the Trimble Earthworks for Soil Compactors – Horizontal Steering Control technology, which is one of the top ten finalists for the ConExpo Next Level Awards Program. Trimble will also be sharing the results of a recent study that sets a standard for expected reduction in greenhouse gas emissions through semi-autonomous compaction operations.
The company’s solutions in robotics will also be on display, including live demos of Spot, the Boston Dynamics robot dog, equipped with the Trimble X7 Laser Scanner. Trimble has broken new ground on development with Boston Dynamics’ Spot robot by integrating hardware and software to provide a completely autonomous laser scanning solution for progress tracking.
