Komatsu has announced the North American launch of its Smart Construction Remote application, which allows users to send new design data to machines in the field, and remotely support operators.

Customers can remotely send files from their office to target machines, search all connected assets, and log in to a machine and see what their operator is seeing. They can also pinpoint the location of machines by job site and upload or download design files at anytime from anywhere.

According to Komatsu, Smart Construction Remote’s capabilities allows construction site managers to help operators troubleshoot issues in real time by viewing the same data they do. They can add new files and transfer design files to multiple machines on site with one click.

“In today’s ever-changing construction environment, Smart Construction Remote is an invaluable, must-have tool,” said Scott Christman, Earthwork division manager at Cornerstone One LLC.

“It provides troubleshooting and file transfers with the touch of a button from anywhere with internet access, minimising crew downtime and maximising production.”

Smart Construction Remote’s software is compatible with select makes of machines with installed Topcon devices and all Komatsu intelligent Machine Control models.

Smart Construction Remote is one of Komatsu’s new Smart Construction Solutions, an umbrella of smart applications created to help construction customers orchestrate construction planning, better handle management and scheduling, streamline costs, and optimise processes remotely.
