Autonomous tech company expands into remote control operation for heavy equipment

Caterpiallar Dozer Teleo says that it is helping the transition to autonomy for the construction

Teleo, a company building autonomous technology for heavy construction equipment, has announced deals with construction customers John Aarts Group, Teichert and Tomahawk Construction for remote-operated wheeled loaders, bulldozers, and dump trucks.

The company says that its tech helps contractors deal with the lack of workers – a recent survey from the Associated General Contractors of America found that 91% of construction firms are having difficulties finding workers to hire, driving up costs and project delays.

Teleo is introducing an incremental approach to autonomy with its system, Teleo Supervised Autonomy, which enables remote and semi-autonomous operations of any make and model of heavy construction equipment. A key benefit is that one operator can control multiple machines from the comfort of a command center.

“The construction industry is experiencing a growing skilled labor shortage,” said Vinay Shet, Co-founder and CEO, Teleo. “We founded Teleo to help contractors supercharge their operators’ efforts by turning their equipment into semi-autonomous machines. By moving the operator out of the cab of the machine and into a command center, we’re also making the operator’s role safer, comfortable, and more accessible.”

Teleo works with contractors to identify the best use cases for the Teleo system, and handles everything from operator training to network implementation.

In addition, Teleo has announced the company is expanding globally through a new dealer partner network spanning across the US, Europe and Canada with partners Dobbs Positioning Solutions, RDO Equipment Co., SMS Equipment Inc. and SR-O Technology.

The company will be demonstrating its technology in Las Vegas at ConExpo at booth D3801 in the Diamond Lot.
