As use of ICT for construction equipment became more common, things like crewless dump trucks, IT execution, and KOMTRAX were further developed. Hybrid equipment that decreased both fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission was introduced and marked a new generation of construction machines.
D61PXi-23 was introduced in the domestic market as a mid sized ICT (information and communication technology) bulldozer equipped with the world's first automatic blade control function. It is the first model in a line of "ICT-based construction machinery" made by Komatsu that provides automated execution and significantly improves precision and efficiency.
As a medium-sized bulldozer for urban engineering work, it is equipped with the world's first automatic blade control function
that automates blade control during digging as well as the finishing phase which greatly improved work efficiency.

Since its first emergence in 1951, it took only 50 years for the hydraulic shovel to establish its primary position on construction sites worldwide. Its size ranges from mini to super size depending on the scale of construction, and during the half century, it kept evolving by achieving a minimum rear-swing radius and adapting styles that would work with characteristics of each site. Mirroring the movement of a human hand, a hydraulic shovel will continue to evolve during the 21st century.
