The proceedings of Commercial Vehicle Technology 2014 are a collection of publications for the 3rd CVT Symposium at the University of Kaiserslautern. As in the previous years 2010 and 2012 numerous submissions focusing on current developments in the field of commercial vehicles have been composed into an interesting and informative collection.
The contributions are of interest for mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and computer scientists working in industry and academia and show the current state-of-the-art in this field. The contents of the publications span the topics durability and vehicle dynamics, lightweight design and component simulation, safety and reliability, and production as well as the increasingly important topics energy efficiency, human-machine-interaction, driver assistance systems, autonomous operations, and a special chapter on excavation.
The conference is held on March 11 to 13 2014 at the University of Kaiserslautern and is expecting the attendance of many renowned scientists and representatives of industry.
