5th International VDI Conference - Connected Off-Highway Machines
- Learn more about the impact of the Digital Transformation on the Off-Highway Industry
- Find out about current developments in the area of Connectivity and Data Management, as well as Remote Monitoring and Autonomy
- Meet peers from the agricultural, mining and construction Industry and discuss latest findings and trends
- Register for the “Connected Off-Highway Machines” conference and visit our parallel conferences “Electrified Off-Highway Machines” and “Smart Farming” free of extra charge
GET READY – On March 3rd- 4th, 2020 our 5th international conference on “Connected Off-Highway Machines” will return to Düsseldorf to discuss new technologies revolutionizing the industry. In the Off-Highway Industries mobile machines become increasingly connected and drive (semi-) autonomously already. They increase productivity and efficiency while reducing costs and making working conditions in harsh environments safer. Our international VDI conference offers an ideal platform to discuss latest technology trends with international experts.

Smart Future for the Off-Highway Industry?
All major players of the Off-Highway Industry are working on smart technologies and solutions. Automation, connectivity and digital processes have many benefits. However, there are still many challenges and questions ahead: How do connectivity and automation impact business models? How to really benefit from Big Data? How to integrate artificial intelligence in Off-Highway Machines? When and how will fully Autonomous Off-Highway Machines become a reality? How does the role of the worker change?
Focus topics in 2020 to look forward to:
- Data-driven Business and Innovation
- Coordinating Data Management across multiple Stakeholders
- Remote Monitoring for enhanced Efficiency and Maintenance
- Connected Vehicle Technologies and 5G
- Automation on the Machine and on the Edge
Also profit from:
- Panel Discussion on “Changing Competencies due to Digitization“
- Interactive World Café Sessions
- Workshop on Machine Data
