Technically sophisticated products, such as the snow groomers from Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG, require simple and intuitive operation. This allows the driver to turn and navigate precisely in the terrain and supports safe mobility on the slopes.

Many new operating elements in the PistenBully impress with user-friendly input methods. These include the ergonomic double-joint joystick, which can be moved freely in all directions and transmits hand movements directly to the control unit, as well as the new iTerminal complete with dashboard.

In cooperation with BUSSE Design+Engineering, a new operating concept was developed, which becomes tangible for the user in the iTerminal. The patented terminal consists of a touch-based 10 inch display, which allows quick access to the most important vehicle functions. Particular emphasis was placed on ensuring that the display of information and the interaction between man and machine support the flow of reading and are self-explanatory. The entire vehicle including attachments was graphically prepared in various usage situations in order to be able to assign interaction elements locally and thus ensure intuitive operation.

Active vehicle parts are also visually highlighted in color. Compared to the competition in the industry, this part deserves special emphasis, as Kässbohrer's new operating concept provides strong support here, especially in demanding driving and weather situations.

To date, the new operating concept has gone through several development stages and has been successfully put through its paces in the field in several test vehicles.

We are pleased with the convincingly successful start of series production in the new PistenBully 100 4F and look forward to its gradual implementation in all future vehicles.
