Caterpillar is the world’s leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment. Its products, including machinery, defense products, on-road trucks, and engines, are manufactured in over 110 facilities and plants worldwide (more than 50 of which are located in the U.S.) and are distributed to nearly 200 countries. In recent years, Caterpillar has focused on reinventing itself as a hardware and software company. In 2021, Caterpillar invested in A.I.-driven predictive maintenance and autonomous operating technologies. Managed by its digital technology division, Cat Digital, this new A.I. tech enables the company to learn how customers use its products and thus design better ones; as well as to conduct predictive maintenance, ensuring that the equipment delivers optimal results.
