MUNICH — Sustainable product innovations and reliable system solutions that clearly focus on commercial vehicle (CV) automation and electrification: These are what Knorr-Bremse, the global market leader for braking systems and other rail and commercial vehicle systems, is promising to show trade visitors to IAA TRANSPORTATION.

In line with the slogan “driven to create the best solutions,” Knorr-Bremse’s trade-fair agenda includes intensive technical coverage and multimedia demonstrations of advanced technologies for assisted and automated driving, e-mobility, sustainability, traffic and road safety, and connectivity.

The IAA TRANSPORTATION trade fair will be held in Hanover, Germany Sept. 20–25. Knorr-Bremse’s booth is located in Hall 12 (Booth C21).

For Bernd Spies, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG and responsible for the Commercial Vehicle Systems division, the international trade fair represents an important discussion forum.

“The transportation industry as a whole is undergoing a remarkable transformation, which is rapidly accelerating,” he explained. “As we see it, traffic safety, automated driving, e-mobility and connectivity are the most significant trends in the commercial vehicle sector.

“This transformation poses major challenges to commercial vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators alike – and as a leading systems partner, we aim to tackle these challenges in close collaboration with OEMs.

“In the case of safety-critical products, our expertise lies in the development of system solutions that stand out by virtue of their superior functionality, efficiency, reliability and sustainability, adding significant value for our customers.

“This also applies to automated driving and e-mobility, because we want to help our customers create future-proof commercial vehicles and business models. We look forward to being able to present our solutions to our customers at IAA TRANSPORTATION in person once again.”

Continuously improving traffic safety has always been one of Knorr-Bremse’s main priorities. This core competency is also indispensable for mastering automated driving and e-mobility.

Thanks not least to decades of experience of and expertise in safety-critical systems, Knorr-Bremse is in an outstanding position to engage with these industry trends and rapidly build market share in both. These key technologies will, of course, be on show at Knorr-Bremse’s booth at the trade fair.
