This week at the 2020 CONEXPO-CON/AGG Show, John Deere will be exhibiting its latest construction industry solutions. At Booth #N12525, Deere representatives will be onsite to discuss these technology offerings as well as the company’s vision for the future.

“The construction industry is rapidly changing, and technology is a driving factor in this evolution,” said Kevin Very, director of technology and product marketing for John Deere Construction & Forestry. “The right technology impacts how a customer bids a job, manages their fleet, assists with operator recruitment and retention, and ultimately improves overall profitability. Technology development is changing the construction industry, and we are continuing to accelerate our technology innovation across equipment and job sites.”

Some of the pieces of technology on display include SmartWeigh?, SmartAttach, and a new scraper earthmoving productivity system. SmartWeigh is an integrated payload weighing system which is in development for Deere’s four-wheel-drive loaders. SmartAttach will make attaching installments easier by automatically configuring machines to their attachments. Finally, the new scraper earthmoving productivity system will measure volume in the scraper in real-time, maximizing trip capacity.

The Advanced Rear Object Detection System, which is a part of the 944K Hybrid Wheel Loader, will also be available for attendees to see. This technology identifies objects close to the equipment, heightening operators’ overall awareness.

“The innovations we’re highlighting at the show speak to our commitment to machine and job site automation,” said Sean Mairet, product marketing manager, John Deere Construction & Forestry. “We’re showcasing a portfolio that puts technology to work for our customers and provides solutions matched to customers’ needs.”
