It's not on the street, yet, but Caterpillar has announced Cat COMMAND for Compaction. It is an operator assisted technology that will help the operator achieve consistent compaction.

Komatsu has added broader capability to their machine control line with Proactive Dozing Control (PDC) on their Smart Construction "i" machines. PDC uses the sensors and GPS system traditionally utilized for machine control to monitor the dozer's position in real time. The system will automatically control blade position and adjust load during any part of the earth moving process, not just at finish grade.
Ryan and Zach will be sharing their experience about how contractors put the latest technology to work in their operation. It's a rare experience to hear about what is working for contractors all over the world and, best of all, ask questions.
