SEOUL -- Hyundai Construction Equipment, a construction equipment maker affiliated with South Korea's leading Hyundai shipbuilding group, has joined hands with Amazon Web Services to develop a fault diagnosis module that combined artificial intelligence and internet of things technology to collect and analyze real-time data of excavators and accurately detect abnormalities with machine learning technology.

Hyundai Construction Equipment (HCE) said the AIoT technology can determine the type of failure with accumulated data and recommend parts necessary for repair. Engineers can remotely determine the situation and take action on the site. Construction equipment withstands heavy working loads for a long time, and it is difficult to detect defects only with sensors and pre-symptoms, so unexpected failures may occur. HCE has worked with AWS to develop AI-based smart construction equipment.

"We will increase customer satisfaction by introducing AI technology developed with AWS to construction equipment to minimize diagnosis and repair time and provide cutting-edge services that maximize equipment availability," said HCE's R&D department head Yoon Young-cheol. The company would commercialize voice recognition equipment control functions through cooperation with AWS and enhance safety functions using AIoT modules.
