VDI-Konferenz - Vernetzte Bau- und Arbeitsmaschinen

Der aktuelle Trend hin zu einer zunehmenden Automatisierung und Elektrifizierung mobiler Bau - und Landmaschinen ist nicht zu übersehen. Telematiktools gehören zunehmend zur Standardausrüstung mobiler Maschinen, darunter Land- und Forstmaschinen, Bau- und Bergbaumaschinen sowie andere Off-Highway-Fahrzeuge. Täglich werden wir mit Technologietrends wie Konnektivität, Automatisierung und Big Data konfrontiert. Doch was steckt wirklich hinter diesen Trends und wie hängen sie miteinander zusammen? Wie wird sich die Welt der vernetzten mobilen Off-Highway-Maschinen in Zukunft verändern und entwickeln?

Wie lässt sich das Potenzial vernetzter mobiler Bau- und Arbeitsmaschinen voll ausschöpfen und wie lassen sich die damit verbundenen Herausforderungen meistern?

Die Hauptziele des Automatisierungsprozesses sind die Effizienz- und Leistungsoptimierung, die Vereinfachung des Betriebs und der Komfort für die Benutzer. Telematiklösungen können zur Verbesserung der Produktivität, Bedienbarkeit, Energieeffizienz und Sicherheit beitragen. Zum Beispiel können Fuhrparkleiter aufgrund intelligenterer Daten negative Wartungsentwicklungen erkennen, bevor sie zu einem größeren Problem werden, und mithilfe der Zustandsfernüberwachung lässt sich die Zuverlässigkeit der Ausrüstung verbessern.

Auch wenn die Konnektivität und die Automatisierung von Off-Highway-Anwendungen den Bedienern viele Vorteile bringen, gibt es nach wie vor verschiedene offene Fragen, über die gesprochen werden muss. Wie verändert sich die Rolle des Maschinenbedieners in einem derart komplexen Umfeld? Wie lässt sich der Betrieb in der Praxis optimieren? Es werden riesige Datenmengen erzeugt, doch wie wird damit umgegangen und wem gehören eigentlich die Daten? Welche Herausforderungen bestehen im Zusammenhang mit Software-Updates?
