Two WPI students collaborated with four Shanghai University students under Caterpillar Inc. sponsorship to redesign and optimize a rear protection system for custom ordered 980H Wheel Loaders for use in strenuous workplace environments. A final design, meeting all Caterpillar Inc.’s specifications, was created by an iterative design process focusing on innovative and resourceful design ideas, meeting ISO standards, strength, accessibility, safety, aesthetics and simplicity.
