SAE Truck & Off-Highway Engineering:  February 2017
  • The next phase
    Meeting Phase 2 fuel efficiency and GHG emissions for heavy trucks will require multiple technology pathways—some of which are still on the horizon.
  • Active vibration damping for construction machines
    An innovative concept for an active system to reduce machine oscillations based on frequency identification.
  • Consumer electronics come on board
    Smartphones and tablets are likely to play a large role in HMIs for heavy vehicles—if productivity and safety are not compromised.
  • Patton’s new campaign
    As new SAE International President for 2017, Doug Patton will advocate STEM, “cultivation” of prospective young engineers.
  • PACCAR’s Sproull primed for SAE Commercial Vehicle post
    As SAE International’s new 2017-2020 Commercial Vehicle Sector VP, Landon Sproull intends to bolster the society’s involvement in evolving industry regulations and to better cultivate cross-sector alliances.
