Doosan recently showed the concept design for a futuristic excavator, the CX, which the Korean company says is targeted for release in 2018.

The excavator is powered by a hybrid system, and features articulated independent suspension. Motors mounted in the four crawler modules allow each crawler to hang on an articulated swing arm. The tracks oscillate around a single mounting point.

The cab can extend forward on an arm to improve operator visibility into excavations, and the counterweight can be extended to maintain balance under heavier loads.

Laser proximity sensors scan the space around the machine to identify people or objects in the excavator's swing path. A terrain scanner facilitates unmanned, automatic operation.
