Digitising construction vehicles for construction efficiency

March 17th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Continental will be exhibiting its current innovations, technological developments and services at Bauma in Germany from 8 to 14 April 2019. Connected smart construction vehicles and machines are among the basic elements of safe and efficient construction sites. The company will be focusing on service and consultancy concepts allowing drivers, fleet managers and operators of construction sites, quarries and sand and gravel pits to increase their productivity. The portfolio includes predictive maintenance concepts for greater operational reliability, solutions for reducing downtime and systems to enable drivers and fleet managers to navigate the information. Its new ContiLogger service approach uses a range of components in order to capture data such as tyre pressure, tyre temperature and vehicle and topographic data in real-life applications. Using the data, which either undergoes one-off analysis by the Continental field engineer or is continuously digitally captured by the user, recommendations can be developed for optimised route management, loading or tyre use. This can extend tyre lifetime but can also adapt operational processes and increase overall productivity.
