SAE Off-Highway Engineering 2005-03-01
  • Engine electronics come of age
    Changes in global standards, combined with engineering know-how, have resulted in a new generation of clean, quiet, and efficient engines.
  • Operators are rolling in the chips
    Microprocessors and sensors are being combined to monitor the way that equipment is being used, then help operators to perform better in that environment.
  • Gaining weight
    Perkins' influence in the off-highway industry grows as it evolves its global engine lines and expands its presence in the U.S.
  • What's new at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, Part 2 of 2
    A preview of some of the products and technologies that will be displayed at this year's event, scheduled March 15-19 in Las Vegas, NV.
  • Engineering a career
    Off-highway companies are challenged not only by the ever-changing technology landscape, but also by finding the engineering talent to help them succeed in it.
  • Excavating 2020 style
    SAE 100 Future Look: Code-named the "SfinX Project," Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) has come up with a glimpse of how excavators may evolve over the next two decades. This result is more revolution than evolution.
  • Increasing functionality by electronically networked systems
    SAE 100 Future Look: On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of SAE, ZF would like to cast a glance on the status and future opportunities of electronic systems.
  • Imagining the future of hydraulic excavators
    SAE 100 Future Look: CNH, with interests in Sumitomo and Kobe Steel, is the power behind the Case, Kobelco, New Holland, and Link-Belt brands of hydraulic excavators.
  • Future trends in construction equipment
    SAE 100 Future Look: Over the next 10 years, product design decisions and trends for compact and midrange construction equipment will be heavily influenced by exhaust emissions legislation.
  • Helping roads and the environment meet common ground
    SAE 100 Future Look; When SAE was founded in 1905, nearly all highways outside cities lacked hard pavements, and were lucky to have macadem or gravel surfaces.
  • Tomorrow's reality in defense electronics
    SAE 100 Future Look: During the next quarter-century, Forecast International believes that the fields of communications, intelligence, computers, avionics, radars, lasers, electro-optical systems, and sensors will leap forward so dramatically that today's most advanced systems will seem prehistoric by comparison.
  • A quiet achiever
    Cummins hopes its long-term emissions strategy provides a sustainable competitive advantage in the industry.
