December 2011: Third Working Session of ERMA

On Friday, the 16th of December 2011 the project partners met for the third working session within the joint project ERMA - Energy and resource efficient working machines. Main focus was put on the measurements performed on test vehicles on Wednesday, the 14th of December. Based on that optimization potentials were deduced and solution approaches for future mobile working machines narrowed down. [weiter]


November 2011: Relaunch of the New ERMA Homepage

The website of the Technical University Kaiserslautern, those of all associated research institutions and projects are completely re-designed. The web page of the ERMA joint project has received a new neat and modern design in the last few weeks also. With its significantly extended content, as long as the new layout and design the new website will allow easier and faster access to project specific informations. [more]

April 2011: ERMA in the Unispectrum Magazine

Energy and resource efficiency in the harsh use of machines on the construction site: four institutes are working together: KIMA (Chair of Design Engineering), MEGT (Institute of Machine Elements, Gears and Transmissions), MEC (Institute of Mechatronics in Mechanical Engineering and Vehicle Technology) and VPE Institute of Virtual Product Development. Funded by the Foundation for Innovation Rheinland-Pfalz and using a mobile excavator of the Volvo CE company as a test machine new concepts and methods for improvement of energy and resource efficiency are being developed. [more]


March 2011: ERMA in the CVC News

Rising fuel prices, scarcity of fossil resources and raw materials and also the accelerated climate change due to CO2 emissions had have significant influence on the development in the automotive industry in the last years. Engine power and size are not most important for the client anymore, but rather the fuel consumption and alternative drive concepts. [more]
