New SAE International Webcast Delves into the Safety, Efficiency and Productivity of Electronic Sensors

WARRENDALE, Pa., Sept. 16, 2014 -

SAE International will offer a free, technical webcast “Sensors for Safety, Efficiency & Productivity” on Thursday, Oct. 16 at 12 p.m. ET.

As part of the Technical Webcast Series from the editors of SAE International, this 60-minute live webcast will feature industry experts who will discuss advances in off-highway electronics that are being developed for increased safety, efficiency, and productivity in the field.

Off-highway engineers are increasingly tasked with ensuring that it’s as safe inside the operator environment as it is outside on the jobsite. This is being achieved through technological improvements from within, as well as from outside the industry. Organic growth combined with technology transfer from other industries is allowing the off-highway industry to take full advantage of advancements in telematics, diagnostics, displays, HMI, V2X communication, and sophisticated software that contribute to exceeding global standards and regulations for safety while contributing to the bottom line. Webcast attendees will be invited to interact with the experts during the Q&A portion of the webcast.

During the webcast, attendees will:

·         Explore the latest advances in off-highway electronics that are being developed for increased safety, efficiency, and productivity in the field

·         Discover how industry experts are utilizing advancements in technology and software

·         Learn how to manage demanding global safety standards and regulations while addressing profitability

Speakers will include:

·         D. Dean Houdeshell, Manager of Systems and Applications Engineering, Americas, Danfoss Power Solutions

·         Stephen Rohr, Global Director, Technology Strategy, Transportation Solutions Division, TE Connectivity
