About us

The Center for Mobile Machinery pools the expertise of RWTH Aachen University and the industry specifically for the field of construction and agricultural machinery. This way improves interdisciplinary collective research. Its integration into the Heavy Duty Drives Cluster provides direct access to a comprehensive, in part newly established infrastructure, including dynamometers, driving simulators and test tracks. Regular workshops connect industry and science, define the strategic focus of the research activities and promote transfer of innovative key technologies to the enrolled businesses.
