SAE ComVEC is the only event of its kind in North America—where suppliers and OEMs in the off-highway, defense, and commercial vehicle and engine arenas who regularly compete against one another can come together to interface and build relationships, work on standards and discuss topics that are relevant to the industry.
This year’s event focuses on, “Total Vehicle Integration: Engineering the Next Vehicle Revolution.” We will address key topics concerning customers, technologies, OEMs and suppliers. We’ll explore how to integrate vehicles and engines more effectively than in the past while addressing customer needs like reliability, fuel economy, performance and quality, and we’ll also examine the engineering it will take to move us forward.
This year, two of our colleaques, Mr Ananth Sakthivel (R&D) and Mr Suresh Kumar N (R&D) represented TAFE at SAE 2012 Commercial Vechicle Conference with papers, viz.
