On display and available for demonstrations were Komatsu machines equipped with intelligent machine control. Intelligent machine control is based on Komatsu's sensor package, including stroke sensing hydraulic cylinders, an IMU sensor, and GNSS antennae. It utilizes 3D design data loaded in the control box to accurately check its position against the target. If the bucket hits the target surface, it is semi-automatically limited to minimize over-excavation.
