Built Robotics transforms existing equipment into autonomous robots
Company's AI guidance systems can be installed on existing equipment from any manufacturer
The remote control experience will allow show attendees to run a Built robot located in Houston and see first-hand how the robots and technology operate in the field. Built is debuting a never-before-seen experience that lets booth visitors manage robots from a remote distance and see how they work, dig, and operate.
Built's technology transforms existing construction equipment — including excavators,bulldozers, and skid steers — into fully autonomous robots. The AI guidance systems can be installed on existing equipment from any manufacturer, while still maintaining complete manual operation capabilities. The upgraded 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. This software will be available to demo live at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas.
In addition to the booth's remote control experience, Built Robotics will be joined by construction leaders for a series of tech talks designed to educate and explain how robots have been transforming the job site. The talks will be taking place every day from March 11-13 both at CONEXPO-CON/AGG and the nearby AGC National Convention.

As one of the latest models in the R2-Series excavator lineup, the Bobcat® E88 delivers durability, performance and quality for more productivity. Technically speaking, it's a compact machine, but it brings big performance with its redesigned engine and optimized lift performance, plus undercarriage and counterweight improvements. All these enhancements make this excavator one of the highest-performing models in its size class. With impressive over-the-side lift capacity, you can dig with greater confidence over the side of the machine. Put it to the test against similar models from other manufacturers. You'll see that the E88 can outwork the competition.
