Technical Webinar Series from the Editors of SAE
Intelligent Machine Control

Available On Demand Until June 23, 2017 

As it continues to get harder and harder to find skilled off-highway equipment operators, and equipment is tasked to do more and more, engineers have stepped up to the challenge by designing system solutions that not only think for themselves but also enable streamlined operation that contributes to 24/7 productivity.

During this one-hour webinar, industry experts will address how sophisticated controls and enhanced networking are improving equipment efficiency while boosting customer productivity. “Intelligent” solutions in areas such as drivetrain systems and hydraulic power generation will be discussed as well as machine guidance and control to a digital design.

An audience Q&A will follow the technical presentations.
