In the Extreme PSS Innovation course, students from BTH’s masters programmes in Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Management and Engineering, and Sustainable Product-Service System Innovation (MSPI) are given challenges from real industrial companies to solve. The course is a central part of BTH’s mantra “In Real Life”.
In mid-November the Swedish team from BTH traveled to Stanford for the global project kick-off. During this week the team created their first Critical Experience Prototype.
The Product Development Research Lab at BTH are for the sixth year starting up a ME310 project in collaboration with the Design Division at Stanford University. As with the last four iterations, Volvo Construction Equipment are the industrial partner.
Volvo CE held the yearly Innovation Conference in Eskilstuna early September. The intentions with this conference were for all participants to share competence, experience and knowledge by networking and creating together.
Welcome to the Future of Construction workshop 2017!
As the summer approaches the yearly ME310 project with Stanford University draws to a close. This years’ projects were presented at the d.school on the Stanford campus in the heart of Silicon Valley in California.
Here follows an interview with senior lecturer Christian Johansson. Currently the main coach for the BTH students in the global Stanford ME310 Design Innovation project.
During a rainy saturday, some 20 BTH students joined for the research labs event “Future Exploration Design-Build-Test challenge” in collaboration with Volvo Construction Equipment.
The Volvo CE Stanford ME310 project has been completed with the annual Stanford EXPE at Stanford University on June 2nd. Students from MSPI and Mechanical Engineering at BTH together with Mechanical Engineering counterparts at Stanford have presented their results for how autonomous machines should collaborate and build trust with their human collaborators at future construction sites.
