An International VDI Conference -
Connected Off-Highway Machines - May 10-11, 2016
n recent years, technology has changed the way
every construction site works - large or small. The
biggest impact is in off-highway projects where
autonomous vehicles have been demonstrated to deliver
a safer working environment.
The rapid advances in GPS, laser and wireless tech-
nology has resulted in a vast array of equipment that
simplify the task of the operator.
How technology has impacted on off-highway ma-
chines is the topic of a conference being organized by
the German organisation, VDI.
Save Thousands of Dollars
Ask yourself "Am I getting the best return from technol-
ogy aboard the off-highway machines I manage?"
Using technology correctly can save companies
thousands of dollars each year. However, it has to be
used right. Operators need to know how to optimise
settings and fleet and service managers need to know
how to collect, and analyse the live data streams
Technology has raced ahead in the past year alone
and now there is a new technology coming to the work
site - drones.
Connected Off-Highway Machines
To enable companies to optimize their use of technology
the German institute, The Association of Engineers (VDI)
is putting on a two day conference.
The conference is an ideal opportunity to hear from
all the major equipment manufacturers, Caterpillar,
Komatsu, CNH, etc - and to meet with their represent-
atives to discuss technology.
