The Commercial Vehicle Industry is facing significant challenges in this era of increasing needs for transport of people and goods. The society is changing rapidly, where more people are living in urbanization areas and demanding more smart and sustainable solutions: silent, clean, safe, connected and efficient. Transport of people and goods is the live-blood of our
economy, fulfilling the needs to let people travel to places for work, leisure, healthcare, and others, and transporting products and half-products, distributed on short distance or transported over long haul, to industrial areas to add value and distribute them to end users, households or the individual consumers.
Making use of new technology, like digitalisation and electrification, the Commercial Vehicle Industry improves their products and services in an increasing tempo. Our customers are using the vehicles in a complex environment, making use of sophisticated planning tools, being connected and integrating all kinds of relevant information to serve the end users and perform better than their competition. It is this environment that stretches requirements and
urges for differentiating solutions.
New and stricter global legislations on emissions, safety and vehicle masses and dimensions will lead to new solutions to be integrated in vehicle platforms. Modularization and standardization could make significant difference in coverage of the global market requirements and the efforts of the Industry to serve specific customer wishes. The vehicles are increasingly sophisticated and make use of a large amount of functional systems, which need to be integrated and having an overall architecture aiming at energy efficiency and low costs.
Automated and connected vehicles can contribute to lower total cost of ownership over the life cycle of the commercial vehicles, which is a decisive criteria for end-users. How the driver will perceive his future task is another area of investigation, where smart interfacing concepts support safe and efficient use of such vehicles.
