Electrified Off-Highway Machines | VDI Conference

Save the Date! The 4th International VDI Conference on “Electrified Off-Highway Machines” will return in fall 2022. In the off-highway industry, the development of electrical hybrid systems and vehicles continues to progress and shows significant gains in performance and reductions in operating cost. This conference brings together thought leaders in cutting edge off-road machinery solutions to discuss potentials and trends in off-highway vehicles’ electrification.

The future is electric

Powertrain developments and electrification in mobility and machinery have been breaking new grounds in the last several years. Yet headlines have mostly been concerned with the increased proliferation of electric and hybrid passenger cars, although changes to the off-highway sector have been just as revolutionary. This conference will discuss the challenges and opportunities electrification offers to the off-highway sector: From the latest developments in battery and engine technology to functional safety and operational issues, such as life-cycles, maintenance and regulatory factors, you will gain insight into how electric power can transform the industry towards a lower-emission future, with new emission standards paving the road for these developments. These standards benefit electrified off-highway machines used in cities with strict guidelines, for example, or in situations where automation and robotics can lead to greater accuracy, or where fuel or operating costs can be lowered.
