September 2013: ERMA in the ZWF

Increasing energy prices, tightening of resources and climate change arr the reasons why energy and resource efficieny of new cars are in focus at new development in the automobile industry. This development is also present in the construction machinery industry. In addition to fuel efficiency work of the machine eco efficiency should be considered through the whole lifecycle. To predicate the efficiency of a product early in its development phase, simulation programs are increasingly in use. [more]


August 2013: ERMA in Sweden

At invitation of the company Volvo the project partners present the joint project „ERMA – energy- and resource-efficient mobile working machines“ and present first insights of the project from the 19th of August 2013 to the 21th of August 2013 at Volvo Group Trucks Technology in Goteborg, Sweden.

June 2013: ERMA in the CVC News

Goal of the joint project which is supported by the foundation "Rheinland-Pfalz für Innovation" is development of energy-efficient concepts and technologies for mobile machines on the example of a mobile excavator. In the foreground are drive, energy management, friction and Life Cycle Management. Actually the project is in an advanced phase: Methods to estimate power losses are developed, test series on the measure-excavator are finished and first results of the analysis are fixed. In this article we would like to give an example for acquired perceptions and cooperation intra-research team. [more]
