The future of trucks

The future of trucks has already begun: New market players change and somehow define the truck landscape all over, but especially in the US and China. Therefore the question arises of how to keep up with their pace and ideas yourself only being very small or very static. At our 4th international VDI Conference Autonomous Trucks we will deal with major business models and involve innovative start-ups in the program to discuss solutions for an autonomous future of trucks

As Association of German Engineers we always take up the technical perspective. For this reason truck technology will not be forgotten here. Automation, Connectivity, Electrification are only some topics we will target. Unfortunately, it is not only Uber as new kid on the block. In regard to Software, the truck industry is also confronted with new players and influencers. Will their business models be successful and can the rest of the truck industry compete?


We are currently preparing the final program for you. You will soon be able to download it here.
