Johannes Sprink

Johannes studied Mechanical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University. Since 2021 he a research associate at the Institute for Fluid Power Drives and Systems (ifas) at RWTH Aachen University. Johannes is a team member of the Mobile Machines research group, which addresses fluid-mechatronic and information-technologic innovations at the machine level. Furthermore, he investigates greenhouse gas emissions in the fluid power industry and his research includes optimizing the operating concepts of hydraulic systems.


From sensor to cloud environment model - data preparation and communication of mobile working machines

Mobile working machines are becoming more and more intelligent. As a result, more and more data is available to be transferred to databases. As part of the Off-Highway Twins project, researchers are investigating how environmental models can be innovated and improved with data from mobile working machines. In this presentation, a wheel loader is used as a use case to show some examples of sensor data that will be available to us in the future. This could include the creation of collision models or the better planning of driving routes of automated mobile machines. It will also show what environmental data can be generated from sensor signals and how it can be transferred to cloud databases.
