With the announcement of the ban on internal combustion engines for passenger cars, the question remains as to the future of heavy-duty and off-highway vehicles and machines.
Although providing for longer duty cycles compared to passenger cars remains a challenge for the sector, a number of innovative organisations have taken steps forward with trials in hydrogen, electric and alternative-fuel powered applications.
This event will cover the specific engineering developments for heavy-duty vehicles including trucks and buses as well as off-highway applications. Attend this seminar to hear from leading OEMs and operators including Go North East, Leyland Trucks, CNH Industrial, Alexander Dennis Ltd. and Bamford Bus Company.
These expert speakers will deliver case studies on a variety of propulsion types in practice to help you understand the current landscape of the heavy-duty and off-highway sectors. As well as propulsion, the event will cover developments in autonomous design for off-highway and novel manufacturing methods to prepare for a low carbon future in the sector.
