In the Competence Center ISOBUS e.V. (CCI) the companies Amazone, Grimme, Krone, Kuhn, Lemken and Rauch jointly develop innovative agricultural electronics. The main focus of their work, besides the development of ISOBUS terminals and software, lies in establishing and advancing the ISOBUS standards for the communication between tractors and trailers and also the data transfer between mobile terminals and agricultural office software.
Challenges in Industrial Design:
- The requirements of numerous stakeholders need to be recognised, evaluated, combined & considered in the plan
- Determining special circumstances within the work environment: dust, dirt, various hand sizes, readability during different weather conditions
- Focus on ergonomics (hand rest)
In close collaboration with all interest groups, a type of joystick was developed. Due to the input of all user groups we could significantly upgrade the product particularly in the area of ergonomics.
