iVT Expo is an international exhibition that showcases nothing but the latest and next-generation components, suppliers and technologies.
No full vehicles are on show: iVT Expo only showcases the components, services and technologies from Europe and beyond that go into making the next generation of industrial vehicles.
iVT Expo conveniently brings together: all the latest new materials; new engine technologies, including electric motors and hybrid applications; new control systems; sensors; testing and validation services and technologies, from durability rigs to EMC and NDT technologies; cabin equipment; technologies required for operator-free/driverless vehicles; and innovative ideas that will help manufacturers of industrial vehicles ultimately improve product design, efficiency and thus sales – all under one roof!
Vehicle categories covered by iVT Expo include anything from off-road loaders, mining equipment and diggers, to tractors, cranes and lift-trucks. In short, technologies and services for every class of industrial vehicle are on display.
There is also a specialized pay-to-attend conference that features streams on: autonomous industrial vehicle technology; electric & hybrid industrial vehicle technology; and cab design, controls, ergonomics and HMI. Over 80 experts will address the critical trends shaping future vehicle development.
The exhibition, which is closed to the general public, is completely free-to-attend. Register now for your free entry pass.
Autonomous Solutions Inc
Synopsis: ASI has been developing autonomous industrial vehicles for 20 years in markets including agriculture, mining, and construction. The presentation will share the painfully learned lessons on that journey and case studies of projects in which they were learned. These lessons will touch on topics including hardware, software, system integration, testing, validation, change management and commissioning.
Southwest Research Institute
Synopsis: Autonomous vehicles for agricultural applications have grown in recent years as an emerging technology to support productivity and sustainability. Perception sensors integrated with artificial intelligence can be applied to various crop-related applications and support safe automated navigation, environment modeling and crop analysis. This work presents the application of cameras and lidar sensors to classify environmental features applicable to agricultural environments. The intelligent perception framework extracts the structural profile and spectral classification of vegetation that can support various automated tasks that include mowing, harvesting and baling.

IoT product manager
Bosch Rexroth AG
Synopsis: In the growing world of connected off-highway machines, new players are offering software solutions/digital services for end customers. Moreover, new business models are emerging, where these new players have to establish a long-term direct relationship with the machine owner/end customer in order to have a profitable business. To address these changes, Bosch Rexroth is setting up a software co-execution platform for connected off-highway machines, where different players can deploy, monitor and share software services. These software services are run on the Linux-based Rexroth Connectivity Unit and remotely managed using the Bosch Device Management Portal.
engineer - construction equipment
AVL Tractor Engineering Germany GmbH
Synopsis: Due to the requirements of construction machines, new sensors are required that can withstand environmental influences. High availability is a key to success. This presentation will compare laser, ultrasound and radar sensors. It will also discuss the testing and validation of processes and systems, plus test processes for safe machines.
vice president engineering and sales
Synopsis: The presentation will discuss lightweight design and production in the off-highway and utility environments, and what they mean for complete structures and system modules for high-tech cabs. In particular, it will describe how Fritzmeier came up with solutions for lightweight cab design in the context of production operations. It will outline the aluminum extrusion process in detail and explain how it enables the production of aluminum sections with high precision, different wall thicknesses and multiple chambers, aligned with the central benefits of safety, ergonomics, comfort and economy, and the key benefit of functional integration capability.
team leader product management
Synopsis: The ongoing evolution of mobile machinery and the increase in complexity in terms of functionality and vehicle system design have an impact on the requirements of operator interfaces. Besides the vehicle itself, the environment is coming increasingly into focus. Sensors and cameras in combination with operator assistance systems considerably increase the efficiency and profitability of mobile machinery. Mobile machinery OEMs are faced with less-skilled workers while the market demands higher productivity and efficiency. Today’s operator interfaces will allow entirely new use cases and will shift operator convenience and machine efficiency to a new level.
design consultant, international customer relations
Main Engineering Srl
Synopsis: Vehicle design does not always consider all the necessary information about cab design. And vice versa. This can make the cab installation a critical phase that can slow down the whole project. It is possible to accelerate this phase by combining experience in vehicle engineering with indispensable skills for the development of cabs for industrial vehicles. The interpretation of technical needs, feasibility checks, project development and production support gives birth to a real project accelerator. The result is a perfectly integrated, technologically innovative and functional cab, with guaranteed, efficient industrialization that brings consistent savings in time, money and resources.
project leader - electronic R&D
Synopsis: The presentation will introduce an innovative head-up display (HUD) system with two different projection modes. Both systems feature laser projectors: a multicolor one with a microlens array screen and an ultraviolet one with a luminescent screen. The images coming from the two projectors are focused on the windshield, with a wide viewing area and visible from any cabin position.
