Case Study Kässbohrer Pistenbully
The modern PistenBully range from Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG covers all fields of application of both classic and modern winter sports: from cross country ski runs and steep slope preparation through to the design of amusement parks.
As part of a comprehensive modernisation of mechanics and design, Kässbohrer commissioned Hoffmann + Krippner GmbH to develop and produce operating units to control the vehicle electrics and hydraulics of a snow groomer using a central electronics unit with CAN bus interface.
The aim was to develop an operating panel as comprehensive and central operating unit for most vehicle functions as well as two smaller operating units in the steering wheel.
Operation needed to be possible without a problem under all climatic conditions by day or night as well as when wearing gloves.
