Develon a double winner at CES 2024

10 January 2024

Construction company Develon (formerly Doosan Construction Equipment) announced that two of its products are being recognized in two different categories as part of the CES 2024 Innovation Awards, held as part of the Las Vegas electronics show CES 2024

Develon’s Smart Collision Mitigation (SCM) system, which is a safety system for detecting objects around an excavator through sensor fusion of camera and radar, is being recognized in the Vehicle Tech & Advanced Mobility category.

The excavator features four or more cameras to provide a 360° all around view, with artificial intelligence (AI) technology selectively detecting people or objects. Meanwhile, three wide-angle radar sensors with 180° horizontal field of view are used for minimizing blind spots and measuring the distance of detected objects. When a pedestrian or object is detected within the target zone, audible and visual warnings are triggered, and the excavator’s swing and driving speed are reduced and then automatically stopped to prevent accidents, the company explained.

Develon’s X-Agent system, which is a solution designed to improve the productivity and skill of excavator, wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks drivers, is being honored in the Mobile Devices, Accessories & Apps category.

According to its developers, X-Agent features an AI function that analyzes information such as driver/equipment status and work plan to create an optimized route to improve the productivity of unskilled workers by roughly 30%.
