Construction equipment is the by far largest industrial vehicle industry but also quite diversified. Duty cycles and asset value differ considerably between equipment types in sub-segments like earthmoving, material handling, road construction, foundation equipment and quarrying. This leads to different expectations and requirements on automation and machine control solutions. At the same time, operators are influenced by the user experience they get in their car or with their Smartphone, offering manufacturers of less complex equipment an opportunity to differentiate in the market.
