STREUMASTER - New User Interface Design

Industrial technology, Automotive projects

Streumaster Maschinenbau GmbH presented the newly designed interface of its spreaders at Sima in Paris at the end of February. Together with BUSSE Design+Engineering GmbH, the existing user interface design and icons were revised.

Streumaster Maschinenbau GmbH has been manufacturing first-class spreaders for agriculture and construction since 1967. They are the world's leading manufacturer of binding agent spreaders.

The spreaders are based on an ISOBUS control system that allows the user to control agricultural attachments of any kind, even from different manufacturers. Together with Streumaster, BUSSE has redesigned the user interface. The existing operating concept was retained. The different types of spreaders are highlighted by means of detailed renderings. Direct visualization of the partial function ensures that the user is informed transparently about the status and condition during operation. The existing image content was replaced by newly designed icons and supports clear and safe operation.

An ISOBUS controller, a standard for machines in the agricultural sector, works with web-safe colors, which is why the user interface design refers to a color palette that only includes 216 colors. This means that gradients, for example, cannot be displayed correctly, as more color gradations should be available for this.

For this reason, Streumaster and BUSSE placed a lot of emphasis on the 3D representations of the spreader types as well as icons, in order to avoid any visual disadvantage despite the small color range.

Thus, we experienced a successful project and together with Streumaster we created a modern interface design without the 8-bit look known for a low color gamut. Compared to the previous version, the software now has a consistent and revised icon concept as well as detailed and proportional 3D representations of the vehicle types.
