Construction tech developer Built Robotics’ fully autonomous construction equipment is now available to contractors and heavy machine operators.

A software upgrade to excavating equipment will allow the machinery to operate autonomously or be piloted remotely, making it the first of its kind to be offered commercially in the U.S.With Built’s software, equipment is able to perform common tasks fully autonomously, such as digging trenches, excavating foundations, and grading building pads.

The autonomous fleet can be managed via a web-based platform, which allows remote equipment operators to supervise the robots.Attendees of the CONEXPO-CON/AGG Convention in Las Vegas next month will be able to see the technology in use on an excavator, bulldozer and compact track loader. From Las Vegas, convention-goers will be able to pilot machinery set up on a jobsite in Houston using keyboard commands, according to Erol Ahmed, Built director of communications.
