Komatsu to partner with US surveying tech company

Sharing 3-D topography data among construction machines

TOKYO -- Japan's Komatsu is forming a data-sharing partnership with Trimble, a U.S. developer of surveying technology, in order to expand the knowledge base for its construction machines capable of generating and updating topography data.

Their cloud-stored 3-D topography data will become accessible by each after unifying data standards by September. This will let users of Komatsu's internet-connected machines access data in rivals' construction equipment.
