Equipment makers are testing the emerging technologies required to advance automation beyond individual machines.

In the construction world, some companies are not just looking to electrify and automate individual machines-they have their sights set on something much grander: the entire jobsite. And Doosan Infracore expects to do so in the next five years.

In addition to debuting new Doosan models at the ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020 trade show in March, such as the DA45-5 articulated dump truck, the DL580-5 wheel loader and the DX800LC-5 crawler excavator-the largest Doosan machine yet-the company (booth N10001) also will showcase Concept-X, an autonomous worksite in development at its Boryeong Proving Grounds in South Korea.
