Design trends, construction site 4.0 and the increasingly important role of human-machine interfaces (HMI) in construction machinery.
Once again this year, BUSSE Design+Engineering was a guest at the world's leading trade fair for construction machinery, mining machinery, construction vehicles and construction equipment to experience and analyze the latest trends, technologies and concepts live in addition to specific project discussions with our customers.
Among familiar shapes and colors, some construction machines clearly stand out from the crowd with their modern design and formal details, setting new standards in the field of construction machine design. Precisely crafted bodies, elegant shapes or powerful details emphasize the respective character of the machine, the brand behind it and generate the unmistakable image of a coherent product family.
In addition to technical innovations and the aesthetic appearance of construction machinery, manufacturers are increasingly focusing on a comfortable and ergonomically optimized workplace. Above all, the focus here is on self-explanatory operation, the integration of guidance and wizards as well as the use and integration of digital interfaces and data.
BUSSE has been supporting many successful market leaders in this area for many years with its proven UX720° method, with which the human-machine interface (HMI) is developed with an eye for ergonomics, hardware and software as well as holistically: From the ergonomics of the workstation, the location and design of the operating elements and the selection of the right interaction technology (discrete buttons, rotary pushbuttons, joysticks, soft keys, membrane keyboards and touch input devices) through to user interfaces and complex menu structures.
The aim is to create an ergonomically optimized, easy-to-learn and convenient user experience for machine operators.
In a market in which differentiation from the competition through unique technical features is becoming increasingly difficult and the limits of hardware are almost exhausted, digital planning and assistance systems, autonomous work processes and smart machine management systems are increasingly becoming the focus of manufacturers. A wide variety of concepts for autonomous construction machinery, fleet management systems and digitalized work processes were presented at BAUMA.
The industry clearly demonstrated at the trade fair that work is being carried out on precisely these topics in order to create sales arguments and differentiation potential for the success of future products.
BUSSE Design+Engineering has been working closely with well-known manufacturers in the construction industry for years on precisely these topics: From product design, ergonomic optimizations and user interfaces to conceptual, future-oriented visions and connectivity solutions.
