We may only be in the month of January, but many in the industry are deep in their planning for CONEXPO-CONAGG (CONEXPO) 2023. According to a recent press release from the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, stated that “the show, now nearly 5% bigger than the record set in 2020, will feature 1,800 exhibitors and 150 education sessions.” Our team looks forward to attending this event and sharing all the exciting new products, news and trends with you. To learn more about what to expect during the show, check out the CONEXPO preview.
One trend that we expect to see during CONEXPO is improvements on connectivity and telematics. Technology that provides connections and data are no longer options for original equipment manufacturers to include in their components and equipment. They are requirements. Learn more from this Danfoss Power Solutions Q&A.
In addition to the need for connectivity in construction equipment, heavy-duty trucks are also adding sensors, telematics and other Internet of Things technologies. As these vehicles move to electric operation and autonomy and self-driving capabilities, connectivity is critical for the success of these trends.
I am looking forward to many trips planned during the first quarter of 2023, including a couple visits to manufacturers’ facilities. I am excited to share what I see and learn with you!
