BTH ska stödja industrin i att utveckla hållbara lösningar

Extended Reality (XR), kommer att förändra våra industrier och påverka framtidens ingenjörer, operatörer och kunders arbete. Nu får BTH medel av Vinnova för att under tre år arbeta med hur XR ska kunna användas för att stödja industrin i att utveckla, testa, installera och underhålla system med denna teknik.

Launching a new chapter with Sugar

Having run 11 projects in ME310, the PDRL Global Engineering student project will explore innovation opportunities in South America and Sweden this year. A team of four BTH students will collaborate with three students from USP in São Paulo and Volvo Construction Equipment in Sweden and Curitiba, Brazil. 

BTH PDRL at the 24th International Conference on Engineering Design 2023

The 24th International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED23) was held in Bordeaux, France, from July 24-28, 2023. The conference theme was “Design in a Complex World,” and it explored the challenges and opportunities of designing for a world that is increasingly complex, interconnected, and uncertain. The conference featured a variety of sessions, including plenary talks, podium presentations, discussion panels, and...

ME310 21-22 at ConExpo in Las Vegas

With the challenge of making alternative energy sources available on construction sites where there is no formal infrastructure, the mixed BTH and Stanford crew, together with Volvo Construction Equipment and Volvo Group, set out to explore solutions!

TRUST-SOS – TRUSTed – Site Optimisation Solutions | 2021-2024

In the project we are developing digitalized services to increase the level of trusted decision making to optimise overall site systems in off-road transport applications. By developing data-driven models for real-time simulation and optimisation of customer site operations, combined with advanced data analytics, we move from the current experience-based process to a model-based process that will enable us to deliver...

Electric infrastructure creation | 2020-2021

Concluding remarks This feasibility study, which was carried out in close collaboration between Volvo Construction Equipment, Lund University and Blekinge University of Technology, has investigated the conditions for carrying out major infrastructure projects emission- and fossil-free. Furthermore, it has also been investigated whether a decision support, which can operate throughout the value chain, customer, contractor and machine/system supplier, is possible...

Nya arbetssätt för emissionsfri vägbyggnation

Blekinge Tekniska Högskola (BTH), Lunds Tekniska Högskola (LTH) och Volvo Construction Equipment har tillsammans fått ett nytt projekt beviljat av Trafikverket. Det ettåriga projektet syftar till att demonstrera tekniklösningar för att kunna driva större infrastrukturbyggen 100 procent emissionsfritt genom att elektrifiera alla mobila maskiner som är involverade. Lösningen kommer sannolikt att innebära processförändringar och en del av projektet är att undersöka...

eTWIN – Digital-Twin enabled Transition into Electromobility and Autonomy in Construction Equipment | 2021

This project has demonstrated the capabilities of creating a digital twin of typical mining operations by combining the simulation of the energy consumption and performances of single electrical vehicles with specific productivity requirements and topographic configuration of the overall mining site. This allows the evaluation of the economic and environmental impact of the transition toward electromobility in mining, as well...

Innovation Engineering Capability sessions with Volvo CE

For over a decade the research collaboration has been going on with Volvo CE/AB Volvo with development of an innovation model, training, deployment and measuring, in order to increase the innovation capability of the organization and ultimately arrive at new solutions to the market in line with the Volvo vision.
