Compatible Technology and Services

Leverage Caterpillar connected data and security principles to improve efficiencies, increase productivity and make your business more profitable.

  • Cat Compact with Compaction Algorithm

    Compaction Algorithm for Landfill Compactors combines advanced compaction measurement, in-cab guidance for operators and reporting capabilities for managers. The system includes a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver on top of the cab and mapping display inside the cab.

    You can map pass counts (low accuracy) or both pass counts and elevation (high accuracy), depending on your desired configuration. Either option is ready to go on Cat K Series compactors direct from the factory.

    The high accuracy Pass Count and Elevation Mapping helps the operator visualize the work as it occurs, ensures that the compactor covers the entire jobsite and produces uniform work. It can also indicate problem areas allowing remediation to occur while the ground is open at a lower cost. Mapping documents the work and provides data for analysis. SBAS or RTK systems are offered depending on accuracy needs and available infrastructure. Initial investment can be scaled up to meet job-specific needs.

    Connectivity, an optional machine to machine communication system, helps sync rolling patterns by sharing coverage and pass-count maps between the operating displays of multiple machines. Ideal for use when performing echelon compaction, operators can monitor areas of coverage and the number of passes made via a color display. If a trailing operator sees an area of missed coverage, they can easily pick it up to ensure the entire rolling pattern gets the attention that is needed. System records temperature and passes for future analysis and documentation.

  • Cat Detect with Vision for Construction

    Caterpillar designed CCTV camera systems enhance the operators view around the perimeter of the vehicle during startup and vehicle maneuvering increasing safety and productivity.

    Work Area Vision System (WAVS) can be used on any Cat and non Cat® machines where the operator's view is limited due to blind spots around the machine. is WAVS has multiple offerings from a one camera system to up to a four camera system. Additionally, three tiers of systems are available, a heavy duty version, customized partial kit (build to fit your machine), and a light duty version.

    Cat Detect with Vision for Construction is not compatible with or scalable to Cat Detect Object Detection.
