Experiences Include Remotely Operating
Cat® Machines, Augmented Reality and Opportunities to
Join the Caterpillar Tech Team
VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Caterpillar
Inc. (NYSE: CAT) will showcase technology solutions that are
helping its customers build a better, more sustainable world at
CES® 2023, one of the largest tech events in the world. The exhibit
highlights the impact Caterpillar and Cat® technologies
are making in the mining and construction industries, and the
positive impact mining continues to make in the world.
"We help miners unearth materials found in everything from
the smartphone displays to batteries for electric vehicles that are
exhibited at CES," said Marc
Cameron, senior vice president of Caterpillar's Resource
Industries Sales, Services and Technology division. "Caterpillar
and our diverse and talented team are making a positive impact on
our world, and CES gives us a platform to showcase our people and
growth opportunities within the company."
The Caterpillar Exhibit Experience
The centerpiece of the exhibit will be an autonomous, 100-ton
Cat® 777 off-highway truck – more than twice the size of
the vehicles in the nearby automotive displays. These machines have
operated in the most extreme environments without a driver on board
for nearly a decade, with more than 560 trucks at 24 customer sites
on three continents – all without a single lost time injury.
- Interactive Autonomous Experiences: Cat Command
technologies will be featured in real-time, using two remote
operating stations connected to equipment hundreds of miles away.
One station will remotely operate a Cat large dozer, while the
second – a single universal station that can operate multiple types
of Cat construction equipment – will be remotely connected to a Cat
excavator. Caterpillar experts will be on hand to help attendees
learn more about these technologies.
- Truck Bed Experience: An opportunity to stand in the bed
of a large mining truck and participate in augmented reality
- Big Opportunities: A recruiting lounge with information
on high-tech jobs that are available today and an opportunity to
interview on the spot for a position at Caterpillar.
Beyond autonomous haulage, the company will showcase
construction and mining safety, fleet management technologies,
equipment health options, high-precision guidance technologies, and
material tracking solutions. Attendees will also learn how
Caterpillar is expanding autonomy to help lead the energy
transition, having recently launched multiple initiatives with
customers to develop battery electric machines.
"CES, the proving ground for breakthrough technologies and
global innovators, is the ideal place for us to showcase our
high-tech leadership," said Denise
Johnson, group president of Caterpillar Resource Industries.
"People have seen us as an equipment company for more than a
century, and they are now realizing that we are a high-tech company
CES 2023 runs from Thursday, January
