International Conference Connected Off-highway machines

When hearing about connectivity and automation, most people think of the automobile industry. Autnomous car technologies and driverless cabs have been discussed often in recent days. However, connectivity and automation is not only limited to automobiles. In the Off-Highway Industries mobile machines become increasingly connected and drive (semi-) autonomously already. These new technologies revolutionize the industry: They increase productivity and efficiency while reducing costs and making working conditions in harsh environments safer. Our 4th international VDI conference “Connected Off-Highway Machines”, taking place on May 14 and 15, 2019 in Dusseldorf, offers an ideal platform to discuss latest technology trends with international experts.
