The Commercial Vehicle Technology Symposium was held for the fifth time last week at the Technical University in Kaiserslautern. More than 200 participants discussed innovations and trends in the field of commercial vehicle technology. In addition to an interesting and exciting lecture programme, which was divided into the main topics “Assisted and automated driving and working”, “Energy and resource efficiency”, “Safety, reliability and service life”, “Simulation methods” and “Innovative methods for development and production”, a exhibition was held in the foyer of building 42 and many different types of commercial vehicles were shown outdoors.
The fifth Commercial Vehicle Technology Symposium will take place at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern from Tuesday, March 13 to Thursday, March 15. The event, organised and hosted by the Commercial Vehicle Alliance Kaiserslautern, takes place every two years and deals with international trends and technological developments in the commercial vehicle industry. In more than 50 lectures and an accompanying exhibition, current and future trends in the field of commercial vehicles will be discussed.
Tomorrow, Tuesday 27 February and Wednesday 28 February, we will present our Autonomy kit RowCropPilot at the Franconian Wine Days in Veitshöchheim near Würzburg. The electronic tracked vehicle Mattro Bock is presented as an autonomous carrier vehicle for taking soil samples and can be inspected on the outside area in front of the Mainfranksäle on the Farmfacts booth. The exhibition will be open from 8:30am to 5:00pm on Tuesday and from 8:30am to 2:30pm on Wednesday. In addition to the exhibition, an interesting conference program will be held. On the first day the program is focusing on biodiversity issues between climate change and economics, and on the second day on wine and its origin as a brand. The program is rounded off with a tasting session starting on Wednesday at 2:30pm. More detailed information on the program can be found here.
Last Friday and Saturday the Autonomy Kit RowCropPilot was presented at the open day of our partner Damcon. It was held for the first time in the newly built premises at Bomelaan in Dodewaard.
Are you a manufacturer of vehicles in the field of row crops and want to offer your customers intelligent functions that help increase efficiency, increase safety and improve comfort? The Autonomy Kit RowCropPilot from Robot Makers GmbH was developed especially for this purpose. This means that it can be easily retrofitted on different machines.
The year 2017 is drawing to a close and we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our company and the cooperative partnership. On behalf of the entire Robot Makers GmbH team we wish you, your colleagues and families a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

From 24 to 26 January 2018 we will be represented at the Agrartage Rheinhessen with our own booth. With the RowCropPilot we present innovative robot technology for use in vineyards and orchards. The application bundle RowCropPilot can be integrated by the manufacturer on different vehicles and enables intelligent functions, which can range from a lane keeping assistant to the autonomous execution of maintenance work. At the Agrartage the application bundle will be presented equipped to an innovative vehicle concept. More information will follow.
