Developing highly automated and autonomous machines in a collaborative way
In the off-highway market segment, the trend towards highly automated and autonomous machines that has taken hold in the automotive world is reinforced by the expectation of increasing the efficiency and quality of task execution while minimizing costs. The hardware needs to be robust to withstand harsh conditions while the software must be modular to cover a variety of machine arrangements and environmental operating conditions. These challenges cannot be solved by one company alone. The Autonomous Operation Cluster (AOC) is a cross-market initiative that brings together industry-leading OEMs and technology providers to develop solutions for automated and autonomous mobile machines.
