Abstract

Recent developments in the field of Industry 4.0 have led to an increased interest in driverless mobile machinery. In industrial sectors such as agriculture, mining and construction, practitioners are demanding autonomous solutions to reduce
operational costs and enhance efficiency and reliability. This paper demonstrates an implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to control a driverless mobile machinery prototype. After reviewing the technologies available for the IoT, we integrate a cloud application, communication protocols and a wireless communication network to control a small-scale bulldozer from a remote workstation. This solution is affordable, open-source, easyto-install and scalable, providing a platform to implement in several industrial applications.
