Bringing 3D Machine-Control Technology to Excavators

As contractors seek new ways to improve competitiveness, efficiency and productivity, technology solutions can enhance the heavy equipment used at the jobsite.

Such a demand led Trimble and Volvo CE to reach an integration agreement focused on establishing a Trimble 3D machine-control solution designed to integrate with Volvo Dig Assist 2D machine control on Volvo excavators.

Integrating the Trimble 3D machine-control solution on Volvo excavators will complement the Volvo Dig Assist capability to enable the use of 3D constructible models, as-built data, and other Trimble Connected Site technologies.

Additionally, integration of the Trimble Connected Site solutions with Volvo machine technology will allow contractors to leverage construction technology in their businesses.

While this is one example, integrating machine control data with equipment can ultimately improve productivity at the construction jobsite.
