For a sustainable future

Automation, electrification, connectivity, and safety - these are the keywords in our pursuit of a sustainable future where businesses, people, and our planet thrive together. We make every effort to reduce greenhouse gases and waste emissions from our production activities and to minimize the environmental burden of our products.

Digital transformation smart construction

Digitization is the key to shortening construction periods and streamlining operations. The “horizontal” digitization connects the entire processes of a single jobsite operation and synchronizes the real worksite with its digital twin, bringing drastic improvements in safety, productivity and environmental performance. “In-depth” digitization takes it even further, connecting data of multiple worksites remotely.

Autonomous Haulage System (AHS)

In 2008 Komatsu unveiled the world’s first Autonomous Haulage System. Unmanned trucks with high-precision GPS and obstacle detection sensors are controlled remotely from the central control room. The system also controls the movement of manned vehicles driving within the area, enabling safer, more efficient, and coordinated operation.

Hybrid technology: environmentally friendly

Our commitment to sustainability is embodied in the world’s first hybrid excavator launched in the market. The electric swing motor/generator captures and regenerates energy as the upper structure slows down and converts it into electric energy. The captured energy is stored in the ultra-capacitor and used by the generator/motor to assist the engine when it needs to accelerate. It uses less fuel, and thus generates less emission.

KomVision: human detection and collision mitigation system

Your safety in even the harshest jobsite conditions is our top priority. KomVision helps enhance the safety in your operation by giving the operator information necessary to check the jobsite surroundings prior to carrying out any action. If the system detects a person nearby, it will alert you so you can stop or slow down as needed.

“Kom-mics” is our original IoT platform to support production, enabling seamless operation of machines and helping connect and visualize operation between multiple factories. Kom-mics harnesses digitization to help remove inefficiencies in your operations.


The quest to reduce fuel consumption and carbon footprint of our equipment is never-ending. Building on the insights and technologies accumulated through the development of hybrid equipment and electric forklifts, we are developing new batteries and high voltage conversion units, facilitating zero gas emissions while allowing for the same performance and output as a standard engine.
