The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) has slated an event intended to gather engineering professionals, suppliers and manufacturers in the truck and bus industry and those in off-highway and agricultural machinery manufacturing. The SAE Commercial Vehicle Engineering Congress and Exhibition will be held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, IL, Oct. 26 through 28.

“The commercial vehicle industry needed a dedicated event to allow us to bring critical issues to the forefront and work toward solutions for both the on- and off-highway industries,” said Dee Kapur, the event’s executive chair and president of International Truck and Engine Corp.’s truck group. “In three short days we will discuss the critical issues, learn about the hot technologies, and have the opportunity to network.”

The three-day event will include seminars, technical sessions, a major exhibition of new technologies and products. It will cover the design and engineering of all types of heavy-duty commercial vehicles, including trucks, buses, construction, utility and emergency vehicles.

Also featured will be the Dana Technology Theater which will present a series of executive panels focused on providing cross-industry learning and discussion on issues critical to both on- and off-road industries. The Dana technology presentations will cover:

  • benefits and risks of using resources from around the world for engineering design;
  • design and safety standards that commercial vehicles must satisfy to operate globally
  • technology plans which take heavy-duty “on-highway” diesels from research projects to product implementation programs to achieve near-zero particulate emissions for 2007, while simultaneously conducting research to achieve near-zero NOx emissions for 2010;
  • rationale behind emissions regulations and engine technologies to meet the regulations and the resulting impact on equipment design and end users.
