Educational interface for reducing fuel consumption
2007 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Volvo Construction Equipment is continuously working with reducing the fuel consumption in their vehicles. Until today the main focus has been to develop better power traines. Since the engine already has reached a high development other areas and solutions to lower the fuel consumption are desirable. The project touch the areas: Human-Machine-Interaction, design and ergonomics and does not consider any technical solutions. The original assignment in this project was to design an interface for wheel loaders and articulated haulers. During the investigations it is clear that wheel loaders contain functions that are used more frequently than in an articulated hauler. The project is therefore narrowed down to solely focus on wheel loaders. Information is gathered through interviews, observation and literature, to get basic knowledge about the company and the problem. The needs, demands and wishes are specified, weighed and evaluated in through discussions and with the help of different weight matrixes. The grading shows that it is most important to make the system appealing to the user with legible signals and good feedback. It is also important to make the system appealing to the buyer and maintain the productivity.
