In this throwback episode of the GroundBreakers podcast from CONEXPO 2020, Fred Rio, Director Construction Digital Technologies at Caterpillar, talks about where the industry is on the pathway toward autonomous technology on the jobsite and what autonomy could mean for construction business owners and equipment operators.

Caterpillar is bringing autonomy to the market with three fundamental blocks: making machines smarter, introducing remote control operation and a back office system that can monitor jobsite progress and dispatch to the machines.
