Joint research project succesfully started. Since the beginning of August 2020, the Chair of Individualized Production (IP) and the Institute for Fluid Power Drives and Systems (ifas) have been working together on the planning and installation of construction machine demonstrators and test areas for machine operation on the reference construction site Campus West. This creates a basis for the real testing of developments for a digitalized construction site of the future. In cooperation with the Bauindustrieverband NRW, a further education center will also be set up on the reference construction site, where courses on digital construction processes will be rolled out for construction companies in the region. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of the federal model project “Unternehmen Revier”.
