Off-Road Trends: Driving Cleaner, More Efficient and Connected Machinery.
Off-road machinery encompasses a wide variety of large, specialized equipment for some of the world’s largest industries: construction, agriculture, mining, forestry, material handling, and lawn and turf maintenance.
These industries are driven by economic, social, and technological issues: shortages of skilled labor, stricter environmental regulations, increasing productivity while reducing costs, advances in automation, and incorporating the latest digital technologies.
Advances in mobile heavy machinery are influenced by many of the same trends as the transportation industry, such as reducing diesel emissions by embracing new battery technologies, designing connected machines with predictive analytics, and moving toward fully autonomous equipment.
This white paper explores global and U.S. market trends that are driving new thinking, designs, and technologies in advanced off-road machinery.
