Traditional value chains in the construction equipment industry are being transformed by digital technologies and new business models.
The CECE-CEMA Summit, held in Brussels on 23 - 24 September will host discussions on the implications that this change has for the whole sector.
Construction machines are getting smarter with every generation, supporting what today is called “smart construction jobs”. ‘Big data’ has made its way into the business: machines are talking to each other, the soil and other conditions on job sites can be surveyed with high-precision tools on operator seats, intelligent machine control equipment is able to automatically control blades or buckets, so that operators can perform high-precision work; construction data will be stored and can be used for other machine appliances. Machines are more and more getting tailored for a specific job and for a specific customer.
At the CECE-CEMA Summit, organised by the European construction and farming equipment trade associations, the industry will put these exciting developments in the public spotlight, and reflect on impact for the regulatory framework, which will have to keep up with the new realities.
