The second edition of the conference will be dedicated to the theme of Off-Highway Machine R-evolution
"Off-Highway machines and systems, subsystems, components that optimize the machine functionality, usability, circularity of life cycle, environmental sustainability, safety."

Enabling technologies can help to achieve optimization: photonics, advanced materials, microelectronics, nanoelectronics, nanotechnology; artificial intelligence related to control systems, sensory detection, to contamination of mechatronics with other disciplines (e.g. meteorology).

Inn4Mech 2021 will cover both the "Science" and the "Technologies/Solutions" of the Off-Highway sector and in particular the following ones:

  1. Green Machines: efficiency improvements, electrification, infrastructure

  2. New Materials and Processes: sensors and actuators, futuristic materials, additive manufacturing.

  3. Smart Machines: precision farming, autonomous driving, infrastructure (e.g. digital farm/mine).

  4. Smart Technologies: predictive maintenance, sensors and actuators, automation, Big Data & IoT.

  5. Open Innovation: other technologies/novelties (from different domains, that can fertilize the Off-Highway sector).
