Center for Mobile Machinery
The Center for Mobile Machinery (CMM) is an interdisciplinary association of university institutes and businesses for pre-competitive research and testing of key technologies in the field of mobile machinery.
In the future, construction and agricultural machines will work autonomously and will be interconnected. New software solutions and automation processes change the way in which humans and machines interact and lead to optimal capacity utilization and increased productivity. In addition, efficient drive technology and flexibly configurable design reduce usage costs and are environ-mentally friendly. This vision allows for current challenges owing to continuously increasing demand for food and tilling and cultivating of fields, ongoing urbanization and construction projects arising from this, as well as increasingly strict legal conditions pertaining to environmental protection and workload. To overcome these challenges, a holistic approach and optimization of all actors and processes involved in value creation are required. Continuously progressing digitalization and the fusion of the real and virtual worlds as so-called cyber-physical systems offer great potential to this end, while at the same time demanding fundamental adjustment of the entire industry. For this reason, the Center for Mobile Machinery aims to develop and test holistically key technologies required in the future for mobile machinery.
