The reason Volvo CE is emphasizing its excavator lineup is simple, according to Ray Gallant, VP of sales support: more than half of the units sold in construction equipment are excavators.

My inbox has been inundated with notifications of exciting new construction equipment, power systems, and other advanced technologies to be revealed at the rapidly approaching ConExpo/Con-Agg and IFPE shows in March. For example, as I write this in mid-January, Kubota teases that it is entering a new product segment and will unveil new equipment at the Las Vegas event. And the onslaught will only intensify in the coming weeks.

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.

ZF's director of ADAS & Autonomy says the supplier will be very well positioned in 2020 for the SAE Level 2 market, which he views as “a real sweet spot” for commercial vehicles.

Together with its many partners, ZF supplies camera and radar technology and advanced components for both the passenger car and truck markets, the latter being especially suited for the move to more complex driver-assistance systems, according to Dan Williams, director of ADAS & Autonomy. “The business case in commercial vehicle for reduction in driver hours of service, fuel cost reduction and safety have strong economic incentives to adopt ADAS/automated driving technology,” he said. “Additionally, the regulations placed on the industry will require our customers to utilize certain solutions.”

Two years ago at the inaugural North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) Show in Atlanta, a recurring theme from nearly every truck manufacturer and supplier press conference was vehicle uptime, along with the various telematics and connectivity solutions that enable fleet managers to keep their trucks on the road. While these certainly were important topics at this year's NACV Show, the dominant takeaway from the Georgia World Congress Center was that alternative propulsion is top of mind for many industry players.

What are the most significant factors influencing the way engine developers approach near-term design and development cycles? Two experts provide their insights from recent programs.

Engine developers face numerous challenges in their work. When building the new clean-sheet design C3.6 engine, Caterpillar Industrial Power Systems considered several factors including customer feedback and lower owning and operating costs. The result of this development process is a compact 134-hp (100-kW) engine that provides a 5% increase in power density and 12% increase in torque compared to its predecessor engine, the C3.4B.
