Teleo, which builds autonomous technology for heavy construction equipment, announced it has signed agreements with three North American construction customers and is expanding its dealer partner network in the U.S., Europe and Canada.
The Teleo Supervised Autonomy system enables remote and semi-autonomous operations of any make and model of heavy construction equipment, the company said.
The retrofit kit incorporates sensors such as high dynamic range cameras that are capable of offering high-definition visibility and video footage, day and night. Once a machine is retrofitted with the technology, a skilled operator can control multiple machines at multiple sites from a single station.
Teleo works directly with contractors to identify the best use cases for the Teleo Supervised Autonomy system and handles everything from operator training to network implementation, the company said.
It recently signed agreements with construction companies Tomahawk, Teichert and John Aarts Group, to implement the technology at varying levels in their operations.
In addition to new customers, Teleo announced the expansion of its dealer partner network with the addition of Dobbs Positioning Solutions, RDO Equipment, SMS Equipment, SR-O Technology.
Teleo will be demonstrating its technology in Las Vegas at ConExpo-ConAgg, March 14-18. Its exhibit will include two remote operation stations. One station will control an on-site skid-steer loader and the other will control a skid-steer located at a site in northern California.
In addition, Teleo plans to launch semi-autonomous operations later this year as an addition to the current remote operation offering.
