Discover the future of mobility with our Guided Tours!


You are visiting the IAA and would like to get an overview of the hot topics in the shortest time possible? With our Guided Tours we offer tours in the fields of Connected Vehicle, Automated Driving, Alternative Powertrain and Urban Logistics & Transport Services.

In each Guided Tour, selected exhibitors present their product highlights, innovative solutions and services. This gives you the unique opportunity to get a compact overview on what’s on offer in your field of interest.

Why take part in a Guided Tour? You will be led straight to the highlights, can pass by the lines, and get to know the exhibitors’ contact personnel as well as other interesting co-participants.

The 4 tour topics:

Topic 1: Connected Vehicle

The “Connected Vehicle” tour will concentrate on the megatrend digitization. In the future nothing is going to work without digitization. Drivers, vehicles, loads and the road infrastructure are all part of a broad network of digital information that is exchanged in real time. Direct communication – possible via infotainment systems – enables faster reactions to traffic obstructions, for instance. Fleet management is also integrated into the information network, so plans can be changed at an early stage if necessary.

Topic 2: Automated Driving

Digitization also plays an important role on the walking tour devoted to “Assisted and Automated Driving”. Digitization provides impetus for new forms of organization. For example, automated driving such as platooning – that is, driving in connected truck convoys or driving in congestion – will become completely normal. Stationary traffic will benefit from the new developments as well: parking, loading and unloading will be automated in the future.

Topic 3: Alternative Powertrain

At the IAA there is no getting around the topic “Alternative Powertrain”. The tour can provide answers to the following questions: how will trucks and buses operate in the future? And what about vans? Are electric drive, natural gas or hydrogen/fuel cells ready to be fully integrated into normal traffic?

Topic 4: Urban Logistics & Transport Services

This tour focuses on challenges and solutions for the fields of “Urban Logistics & Transport Services”. For example, how can the volume of traffic be optimized, and how can functional mobility be guaranteed in the growing metropolitan areas around the world? How does a Smart City look like? Ideas for solutions in freight and passenger transport, intermodal and combined transport, the last mile, long-distance buses/urban buses and seamless transport will be showcased.

Furthermore, the tour shows solutions at hand for making logistics processes even more efficient. Platforms enable optimized cooperation and better usage of storage space. All participants of a supply chain can be connected via cloud services. Even the commercial vehicles manufactures no longer only focus on vehicles, but also offer a rich amount of services around transport and logistics.
