If you manage construction projects, you know design changes come with the territory. You also realize that delays in updating plans could adversely affect production and your profits.
“It’s critical to communicate new information as quickly as possible,” stated Bryce Satterly, Komatsu Smart Construction Solutions Manager. “Technology is making that virtually instantaneous. Our Smart Construction Remote solution is a good example. It allows users to send design data to machines in the field and remotely support operators without traveling to the job site, reducing costly downtime.”
Managers can log into target machines, pinpoint their location, view the machines’ monitors and upload or download files at anytime from anywhere, according to Satterly. He added that updates can be transferred to multiple machines with one click.
Smart Construction Remote’s software is compatible with Komatsu intelligent Machine Control dozers and excavators as well as with select aftermarket grade control systems. It’s one of several Smart Construction solutions created to help you more efficiently plan, schedule, manage, streamline costs and optimize processes remotely.
Distant troubleshooting capabilities
In addition to project design file updates, Smart Construction Remote provides distanced troubleshooting capabilities. Offsite personnel can view what operators are seeing in the field, and even operate the machine control monitor, through their connected devices.
“The operator, survey manager and others can communicate remotely in real time, and resolve issues faster,” said Satterly. “Not having to make that trip to either update a machine or troubleshoot it saves time and reduces fuel costs and emissions associated with driving to the site. Those are added benefits.”
