Platinum sponsor of the “2019 Smart Green Island Makeathon”
The numbers speak for themselves: 270 students from 70 universities and 80 employees from 40 companies out of a total of 400 participants. This expert group converged at the Makeathon event on Gran Canaria from February 20 to 23. The goal of the event, which was promoted by platinum sponsor AMK, was for teams of students to develop solutions for future-oriented topics like connected systems, smart mobility, smart production and green energy. The sheer number of spontaneous, innovative applications available for AMK drives even impressed experienced company representatives. One team used the ihXT3 decentralized AMK drive as a generator for a mini wind turbine. Another group of students used the ihXT3 to adapt kinematics to the user through facial recognition and the OPC UA Industry 4.0 protocol. Now that shows the potential of our products.
