This feels unfamiliar: Today, the check-in has been cancelled, we go into the cockpit straight away. When I glance into the pilot's cabin of the A-320 flight simulator "AIXplane" of FH Aachen in Merzbrück and look at all the controls with big eyes, I feel my heart beating faster. With the take-over of the A-320 flight simulator "AIXplane" last Thursday, FH Aachen is sending an important message to encourage the further development of the research airport Merzbrück.

Namibia suffers from water scarcity and drought; securing water supplies throughout the country is becoming increasingly difficult. An exciting task for civil engineers - just like other infrastructure sectors, such as roads, railways, energy and housing construction. For 13 years, there has been a close cooperation between Namibia University of Science and Technology and FH Aachen. "It all comes down to the people," says Prof. Dr. Thomas Krause, professor at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, who has been supervising the exchange project from the very start. Read our report in German and in English.
The field robot "ETAROB" was developed by the FH Institute MASCOR (Mobile Autonomous Systems and Cognitive Robotics). Fully autonomous, it can identify plants by their structure while driving across the fields. It removes the surrounding weeds by using electric shocks. This way, the amount of chemicals used in field work can be reduced. Prof. Dr. Marcus Baumann, Rector of FH Aachen, is thrilled about the project: "With the field robot, we are making a contribution to a more environmentally friendly agriculture of the future and are providing an impressive example of the innovative power at universities of applied sciences". | Go to the report
