SAE Truck & Off-Highway Engineering

August 2019

    • Electric machines find their niche
      Smaller machines working in cities are particularly ripe for electrification, but most off-highway applications will retain the internal-combustion engine.
    • Big data, big benefits
      Data mining helps users and equipment developers use data from on-vehicle sensors to work more efficiently.
    • Data connectivity in harsh environments
      Ensuring high-speed data transmission requires OEM designers to think more about components, placement and the impact of environmental conditions early in design.
    • Trucks with intuition
      Perceptive Automata partners with Volvo Trucks to demonstrate AI technology that can determine when pedestrians will cross the road.
    • Change is afoot
      Cummins and its CTO help focus the 2019 SAE COMVEC on the fast-shifting technology landscape that faces both on- and off-highway sectors.
