More Advanced Technology with Cat ConnectMore Advanced Technology with Cat Connect

There has been a rapidly increasing use of technology on construction sites, plant and equipment over the past two decades and there is no sign of any easing up.

Cat Connect, the latest framework for construction technologies and services, helps customers monitor, manage and enhance operations and gain more control of jobsites.

Using data from technology-equipped machines, customers get more information and insight into equipment and performance than ever before.

A goal with the introduction of Cat Connect is to make technology and the benefits it delivers easier to understand and apply. In many cases, expanding the use of Cat Connect technologies only requires the addition of proprietary software, and in some instances, easily installed sensors or electronic components.

In addition, a key commonality across most Cat Connect technologies is the web-based user interface, VisionLink. By providing visibility to items like equipment location, status, availability and health, VisionLink helps people in the office analyse information quickly to respond accordingly.

As interesting as it is, Cat Connect AND other similar systems are limited by their lack of connectivity.

These ‘intelligent systems’ will only fulfil their total capability when the industry gets together and agree a common interface to enable a fully integrated system. There are many examples of such agreements. For instance, the very common USB connection and common mobile phone chargers/adapters.
