Komatsu at ZMP World 2019

-Komatsu & ZMP to realize unmanned Autonomous operation of "Crawler Dump CF-1" rough terrain carrier
-Komatsu open innovation strategy and Autonomous Driving technology for construction machinery-

Crawler dump CF - 1 unmanned Autonomous Driving transport model

ZMP Inc. in Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo (CEO, Hisashi Taniguchi, hereinafter referred to as ZMP) will hold ZMP World 2019 from July 23rd (Tuesday) to July 26th (Friday) at Bellesalle Iidabashi First and Komatsu Ltd. in Minato-ku, Tokyo (President and CEO, Hiroyuki Ogawa, hereinafter referred to as Komatsu) will have a talk at ZMP World.

Backed by the lack of labor at construction sites worldwide, Komatsu, which accelerates development of unmanned construction equipment, announces the current status of smart construction in the construction industry. Komatsu and ZMP jointly developed an unmanned Autonomous Driving model of the Rough Terrain Transport Vehicle “Crawler Dump CF-1”, and in October last year CEATEC JAPAN 2018 a demonstration of working of this vehicle was done.

Komatsu has invested in ZMP in 2015 to promote unmanned construction and mining machinery and Autonomous Driving.Currently, Komatsu and ZMP have achieved unmanned Autonomous Driving in the Komatsu IoT Center Tokyo and we are promoting development as an initiative leading to the future site solution "Smart Construction" that connects the entire site with ICT to improve productivity.

The Crawler Dump CF-1 unmanned Autonomous Driving transportation vehicle is equipped with ZMP Autonomous Driving software IZAC®, various sensors such as GPS (GNSS), stereo camera, etc., and controls the vehicle necessary for Autonomous Driving.Self-position estimation, object detection, route planning generation, inter-vehicle communication technology can be accomplished using WiFi equipment.

On the site using the construction machine, highly efficient work is required, thus by introducing Autonomous Driving it is possible to repeat the work which reduces unnecessary movements such as arrival to the exact destination. In addition, by introducing Autonomous Driving that does not depend on human skills / know-how, it is also a technology that can make up for missing operators.

ZMP has provided Autonomous Driving technology to realize this.We provide vehicle control technology and Autonomous Driving software which we used for developing RoboCar® series.Moreover, self-driving software IZAC development self-position estimation technology, route to the target position technology,provide inter-vehicle communication technology, automation of a series of work with hydraulic excavators and bulldozers.

ZMP World theme is ​"From R & D to mass production -Robolution by ZMP-"​ ZMP World 2019 based on our determination to "contribute to society and contribute to the world through commercialization and mass production of robot and Autonomous Driving technology". Please reserve in advance to take part in the lecture session. Be a part of ZMP World 2019 to get to know about the technology of Today & Tomorrow ~Autonomous Driving~
