Due to Covid’19 pandemic, this year’s original conference was postponed until June. But to help exhibitors and visitors to keep in touch with the latest technologies and to enable to network with customers, colleagues, and friends, iVT Expo Virtual ‘Live’ was launched and will take place February 9 -10. This will be an online two-day conference featuring streams on autonomous industrial vehicle technology; electric and hybrid industrial vehicle technology; and cab design, controls, ergonomics and HMI.
John Emil Halden, Chief Operating Officer at Yeti Move, will speak at the virtual conference, presenting “From vision to reality” – the world’s first commercial contract for delivery of autonomous snow removal equipment at airports! In December 2019 Yeti Move won, together with Øveraasen, the world’s first commercial contract with Swedavia for delivery of autonomous snow removal equipment at airports. Over the next few years, the Swedish airport operator Swedavia will start using unmanned vehicles for winter maintenance of runways and taxiways at its airports. The presentation will cover the journey from the first vision of autonomous snow removal at airports to implementation at a major international airport in Scandinavia. John Emil has spent the last three years at Yeti Move as project manager for the development of autonomous solutions for snow removal at airports. Previously he spent 14 years as project manager for advanced technology development projects at Semcon.
