Plantworx Get Connected Technology Zone: Driving the Future of Construction Equipment


From June 13th to 15th, 2023, the East of England Arena and Events Centre in Peterborough will be buzzing with excitement as industry leaders, manufacturers, and plant specifiers come together to showcase the latest equipment, technologies, and techniques in the construction industry.

The construction industry has come a long way in the past few decades, and technology has played a significant role in that progress. From machine control to telematics, GPS systems, and safety systems, technology has transformed the way construction sites operate.

Machine control systems have dramatically improved the precision of construction equipment such as excavators, bulldozers, and graders. By utilising GPS technology, these systems are able to provide real-time guidance to operators, enabling them to complete tasks with greater accuracy and speed. This in turn minimises the need for rework, saves on material costs, and ensures projects are completed on schedule. Telematics, on the other hand, enables remote monitoring and management of construction equipment. By collecting data on equipment usage, fuel consumption, and maintenance requirements, site managers can make informed decisions about asset allocation and maintenance schedules, leading to better utilisation and reduced downtime.

GPS systems have become indispensable tools on construction sites, allowing for accurate positioning, mapping, and tracking of equipment and personnel. This has streamlined workflows and
