    Thursday, Oct 20, 2016 12:00 - 1:30 PM @ UI Labs
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Big machines. Bigger data. Experts estimate 5 million new things are connected around the world every day. We’re talking watches, phones, cars and yes, even tractors. So what does connectivity mean for Caterpillar? With the largest industrial fleet of connected assets in the world, you’re invited to get an exclusive look at how we take the zeroes and ones to anticipate and solve customer problems through digital technology. At UI LABS, experience Caterpillar's groundbreaking innovations and meet the people who are revolutionizing the job site of the future. You'll also be able to hop on Cat equipment and even operate an autonomous dozer 1,700 miles away in Arizona.

    *Must be 21 years or older to attend. Wear close-toed shoes, long pants and side shield safety glasses. Any rings may need to come off.
