Key topics

Autonomous Driving

The topic of autonomous driving is undoubtedly top in our industry. However, it is a topic that is associated with a lot of uncertainty and setbacks, while it offers truly great opportunities. We show you on the screen as well as on the surface what you can expect from us, how we assess the influencing factors and what we have learned from the projects we have carried out in the past years. External partners will present their experiences and, in particular, will shed light on the legal situation and the main issues we have to expect in the coming years.


Opportunities through digitalisation and data management


Collecting data has become easy in the meantime – technically at least. Through the acquisition of a company specializing in data management for over two decades, we at the Aebi Schmidt Group have acquired quite a deal of knowledge and experience when it comes to simplifying processes and procedures with the help of data. See it live and learn from external partners who will contribute their own experience. And yes, we will also show you in an unadorned way what didn’t work as well as we had expected – so that you can be sure not to start your own project from zero.


Innovative Services and Products


Finally, we do not want to withhold from you the innovations that are already available or that we will be able to offer shortly. Not everything comes from us. On the contrary, we are clearly committed to partnerships with companies that are leaders in their field. Sometimes we develop things further so that they are perfectly matched to our products, but sometimes we simply bring two things together as they are. And of course we will give you an insight into the topics you can expect from us in the coming years.
