Wheel Loader Future
A Vision Of The Machines Of Tomorrow - continued
The Autonomous Concept Vehicle (ACV) was shown for the first time in Europe at the SIMA international farm machinery show by Case IH, a brand of CNH Industrial. It was awarded a silver medal in the SIMA Innovation Awards.
Case IH was among the pioneers of ‘precision farming’ Advanced Farming Systems (AFS) when, in 1994-95, it introduced a GPS-based system to show the yields from different areas of fields. Still used today in a more advanced form, this allows subsequent application rates of fertiliser and seed to be adjusted the following year according to the yields those areas gave.
This ability to work on selective criteria could be useful in selection and blending of materials in quarrying and the construction industry and other duties such as compaction.
Behind the Wheel: how Virtual Reality is building the machines of tomorrow
The latest episode of the ‘Behind the Wheel‘ series follows CNH Industrial’s Design Analysis & Simulation team as they collaborate across continents with super computers to conceptualize future machines.
With the help of Engineering Simulation and Virtual Reality technology, they are able to reduce the number of physical prototypes that need to be built before a final product is produced.
Thanks to the rise of new technologies such as Virtual Reality and the increasing capacities of High Performance Computing (HPC), the days of crash test dummies and costly physical prototypes are becoming a distant memory in the automotive and capital goods sectors.
