ComTech@AT: #StageTechnology

The stage is yours!

When I designed the IoTG Gateway (2017) and Namib (2020) test benches, the basic idea was to do something unusual with students. Not too scientific, but a bit of art, a bit of technology and a lot of fun. But I had to wait quite a while before I found a student who liked surfing on light waves.

Yesterday, Sebastian V. presented great work results that should not go uncommented. He realized step by step didactic projects for industrial controllers from two different manufacturers and showed that interoperability is an important prerequisite for industrial automation components and that classic PLC programming can be a lot of fun. For students, for the professor and for stage technology.
