Every Equipment Operator deserves a safe working environment and CAT® has been experimenting with remote control operation for a number of years now. Line of sight remote operations are becoming increasingly common in hazardous environments, but driving your equipment for miles away? The future is now with CAT® Command.
CAT® Command In Action
What Technology Is Available?
The CAT® Command technology includes a remote-control system available on CAT Dozers, Wheel Loaders and Skid Steer Loaders.
- Line-of-Sight Controller: This portable, over-the-shoulder console lets operators work safely and comfortably off the machine, while remaining on-site and in direct visual contact. It’s ideal for short-term and emergency use and requires no onsite communications infrastructure.
- Remote Operating Station: Located in a command center on site or many miles away, this technology allows operators to work for long periods of time while seated in a safe, comfortable “virtual cab.” It requires video and audio support over a high-speed communications network
Remote control is just the first step. Cat Command is paving the way for tomorrow’s semi- and fully autonomous equipment systems.
How Do I Get Started?
Because Cat Command is designed exclusively for—and deeply integrated into—each machine, it’s available only on new Cat equipment from the factory. Talk to your Alban CAT Equipment Rep about your options.
