Navistar Truck Videomapping

There’s been a recent spate of automobile projection mappings as of late, like a few from SuperGlue, RadugaDesign, and DuckUnit, but trucks and other vehicles are starting to crop up.

DALLAS – Navistar’s display at a recent trucking show in March aimed to debut a new truck while creating a brand experience that captured the company’s versatility. Freeman delivered an exhibit that included a skin-wrapped truck and several screens. Using projection, the truck itself became a screen showcasing the vehicle’s many potential applications. Freeman, a provider of services for marketing events, partnered with Navistar to build an immersive brand experience to showcase its global product offerings and future technologies.

The goal of the display at the 2012 Mid America Trucking Show held in March was twofold: debut the new Loadstar truck while creating a brand experience that captured the company’s versatility. Freeman delivered an exhibit that included a skin-wrapped Loadstar and several screens. Using projection, the Loadstar itself became a screen showcasing the truck’s many potential applications.

“The effect of using the skinned Loadstar as a screen allowed the company to show the truck’s many functions in one display,” said Mike Wohlitz, Director of Corporate Solutions at Freeman. “This innovate design allowed the audience to watch the truck morph from a concrete pumper, to an airplane refueler and then to a waste management truck.”

The screens behind the truck enhanced the overall experience by providing the relevant background for the particular truck function being showcased. This overall effect facilitated a clear picture of the company’s flexibility in providing trucking solutions. Additionally, Freeman created a touch screen interface, “TerraStar,” that enabled audience members to choose the type of truck they wanted to see.

Alongside the exhibit were additional demonstrations to complete the brand experience. The “Severe Defense” used an army tent as a projection surface showing the stories of the soldiers from the front lines including footage of the company’s military vehicles. The “Super Truck” was a sculpture created to highlight its vision for the truck of the future. Freeman also used wrapping and projection to enhance the truck’s various features.
