Dirt and Digital: Chicago Ideas Week Highlights

November 1, 2017

Caterpillar machines and technology were on full display at this year's Chicago Ideas Week (CIW). Not only was the company a CIW sponsor, but Caterpillar also hosted a "Dirt & Digital" lab in the heart of Chicago. The lab allowed participants to see yellow iron at work and to immerse themselves in some of our latest technologies that are changing the way Caterpillar does business, including autonomous machines, virtual and augmented reality, drones and safety services.
