Position Partners says it will support customers looking to retrofit heavy equipment with Teleo’s remote-operated and autonomous solutions across Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia.
Teleo’s system can be retrofitted to any make and model of machine and includes the company’s proprietary software, a remote command centre to operate the equipment, and a robust mesh network to enable two-way communication between the command centre and machines, according to the company. The kit incorporates sensors, including high dynamic range cameras that deliver high-definition visibility and video footage both day and night.
Once a machine is retrofitted with Teleo’s technology, a skilled operator can control multiple machines, at multiple sites, from a single station. The technology brings the operator experience to the remote command centre by bringing the sound and feel of the machine into the room as if they were operating it in person.
“With ongoing labour and skills shortages in the construction sector, there is more work to be done than there are people to do it,” Martin Nix, CEO of Position Partners, said. “Automation and remote-control solutions from Teleo will help our customers to increase productivity with one operator capable of operating multiple machines in a safer, more comfortable environment.”
With more than 30 years’ experience fitting machine control solutions to all makes and models of heavy earthmoving equipment, Position Partners is well suited to deploy Teleo technology as the latest innovation for the construction and material moving sector, it says.
Position Partners will offer the full Teleo solution to customers and support sales, installation and training in all countries the company operates in including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Vinay Shet, co-Founder and CEO of Teleo, said: “We are delighted to announce our agreement with Position Partners. Their skilled team will ensure the best outcomes for our mutual customers as they deploy Teleo’s cutting-edge supervised autonomy solution.”
