Autonomy on-demand! Autonomous testing of human-driven compaction roller

Can we transform a compaction roller to become temporary autonomous for executing a specific task? And can we do it in a cheap and flexible way? That´s the challenge that Jojje Sundblad and Sebastian Tuma Fischer, master thesis students in Mechanical Engineering at BTH, have faced in collaboration with our research partner Dynapac. Endurance tests […]
