09/06/2019 INTUSI from Liebherr wins international design award for excellent user experience
The innovative, adaptive operating concept INTUSI received the international UX Design Award 2019 for excellent user experience. The user experience is a key issue of man-machine interaction systems and is increasingly the focus of research work due to the increasing networking of our everyday lives and the working world. The awards ceremony takes place today, 6 September 2019, at 5.45 pm at the global technology trade fair IFA in Berlin.
The INTuitive USer Interface (INTUSI) is the first highly digitised control console for construction machines and materials handlers from Liebherr. Liebherr designed this new operating environment together with researchers from TU Dresden. INTUSI revolutionises the construction site because for the first time it links digital assist systems and the construction site environment to the construction machine.
The jury evaluated INTUSI as follows: "INTUSI is a concept which aims to digitise the complex manual control of machines. Highly developed technologies should guide and support people in demanding situations." Thanks to the innovative, adaptive operating concept, the complex operation of a construction machine is turned into a positive user experience: In the future, a customised user profile is available to the machine operator during his work. He operates a control console, whose functions and appearance are adapted to him, his task and his environment. This makes working on the construction site safer and more efficient and at the same time increases the operating comfort.
The UX Design Award is awarded every year in the three categories Gold, Product and Design. This year ten winners have been selected. INTUSI impressed in the category UX Design Awards | Concept 2019 (product visions and concepts). All nominated developments are presented in a special exhibition from 6 to 11 September at IFA.
In April 2019, the INTUSI control console received the Bauma Innovation Award in the Design category. It is to be used in the future in all Liebherr earthmoving machines and material handlers.
