Being successful means having created something of value in the past. Staying successful requires to identify the trends of tomorrow and start to develop for them today. This is the only way to be innovative and to maximise profit in the future.
With this idea in mind EBV created the concept for the TQ on Tour event series which will take place in September and October this year in Germany for the first time. The events are inspired by the TQ – EBV’s free knowledge magazine – which explains the most important trends for Industry 4.0 (i.e. Industrial IoT) in its latest issue. Together with the seminars we will offer a special TQ version dedicated to agricultural and commercial vehicle technology – stay tuned!
The first seminar will provide deep insights about electronic trends for agricultural and commercial vehicles. In order to offer as much expertise as possible to the participants we teamed up with Infineon for the first events. Therefore we can ensure a highly valuable program discussing challenges which manufacturers of agricultural and commercial vehicles will face in the near future. In addition EBV and Infineon will offer detailed technical solutions for complex applications using the most advanced semiconductor technology available.
The Program: Here is what you can expect
The one-day workshop will kick-off taking a closer look on the status-quo of the agricultural and commercial vehicle industry before focusing on efficient power distribution and intelligent control of hydraulic/pneumatic actuators. To round up the first block we will host a discussion including the Technical University of Dresden about the technical challenges of tomorrow and how to tackle them.
In the second part several experts will talk about trends and concepts for functional safety as well as the key elements and components which are necessary to implement critical safety features in modern applications.
Potential of highly-efficient electric drives and practical solutions and challenges related to traction drives will be the first topic after the lunch break.
The next session will turn to sensors, explaining how to use them in order to create intelligent and autonomous systems. Our experts will further provide information about sensors which will be used in sophisticated vehicles in the future.
Presenters from Infineon and the Vector Informatik GmbH will speak during the last session of the seminar adressing innovative hard- and software development with a special focus on AUTOSAR.
To end the day we will host a round table discussion about high-tech trends in 2020 including the topics autonomous driving, efficiency and economy.
The first two German seminars will take place September 10 in the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany and October 7 at the Magirus Group in Ulm, Germany. Stay up to date about upcoming seminars and topics here.
