Frank Nerenhausen, executive vice president at Oshkosh Corp. and president of JLG Industries, delivered the keynote speech at the T50 Summit of World Construction Machinery Industry this week, discussing the role technology has played in the development of aerial work platforms. Nerenhausen also shared his vision of what jobsites may look like in the future. In his remarks, he focused on how technology has and continues to advance safety and productivity on jobsites.

“Technology continues to be the key enabler behind AWP product enhancements and is the catalyst for changes to how jobsites are managed,” Nerenhausen said. He went on to look at the impact advanced telematics will likely have on the ability to monitor and analyze jobsites, enabling higher work quality and safer operations.

The T50 Summit, started in Beijing in 2011, is collectively organized by the China Construction Machinery Association, Association of Equipment Manufacturers, the Korean Construction Equipment Manufacturers Association and co-organized by China Construction Machinery magazine.
