    • Calibration and complexity
      Off-highway engine applications continue to increase in complexity to meet emissions regulations and fuel economy targets as well as to take advantage of advances in electrification and mechatronics. The model-based calibration process has become the industry standard.
    • ECU advances take many paths
      Controllers are evolving rapidly, with a range of microcontrollers distributed throughout the vehicle
    • Working remotely
      A new electrohydraulic steering technology that offers energy efficiency improvement, increased productivity, enhanced safety, and adaptability to operating conditions also has the capacity to support remote operation of a compact wheel loader.
