Changes in global standards, combined with engineering know-how, have resulted in a new generation of clean, quiet, and efficient engines.
Microprocessors and sensors are being combined to monitor the way that equipment is being used, then help operators to perform better in that environment.
Perkins' influence in the off-highway industry grows as it evolves its global engine lines and expands its presence in the U.S.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Cummins hopes its long-term emissions strategy provides a sustainable competitive advantage in the industry.
