Innovations, future technologies and smart construction platform being shown in Las Vegas
DEVELON, formerly known as Doosan Construction Equipment, are demonstrating their commitment to the future of construction sites with updates to their Concept-X and XiteCloud smart construction platform during Conexpo-Con/Agg 2023.
Concept-X was unveiled in 2019 as the world’s first automated construction solution. At a demonstration of Concept-X in Korea, attendees witnessed autonomous construction equipment performing every-day jobsite tasks.
At Conexpo, Develon are unveiling the latest developments to the technology-based solution in an updated version called Concept-X2. The newest iteration of the solution includes the following updates:
New dozer added to autonomous equipment line-up
Autonomous driving and blade control based on global navigation satellite system (GNSS)
Automated 3D grading with tilt-rotator accessory
Enhanced machine-learning-based auto-digging and loading
Integrated work planning algorithm applied
Advanced E-Stop safety technology.
The Concept-X2 autonomous construction equipment in the Develon booth includes the DD100-CX dozer and DX225-CX crawler excavator. Both machines feature a new cabinless design and a linear core design language.
As part of the innovation area of the Develon booth, the company will promote the latest developments of its all-in-one smart construction platform, XiteCloud.
With XiteCloud solutions, a customer can manage multiple tasks, such as surveys, terrain analysis, machine purchases, equipment operation and construction management on a single platform, thereby reducing costs and saving time while increasing work accuracy, which in turn raises productivity. XiteCloud also allows customers to manage multiple projects on a single platform, accumulating and managing data that can be utilized for future decision-making/business.
The advanced automation technology is commercializing in phases. Customers can digitize their site with innovative management, field and safety solutions. A range of new solutions that form part of the XiteCloud system include: XiteFleet, XiteAuto, XiteAnalyst and XiteSafety.
XiteFleet provides real-time fleet monitoring with location tracking and operation monitoring. XiteAuto commercializes the current and future technology that Develon are developing, from 3D machine guidance to automation. XiteAnalyst is a digital twin-based earthwork analysis/management solution. XiteSafety offers safety management, including preventing collisions between construction equipment and workers.
