Arnhem: the green, entrepreneurial city
Students at Van Hall Larenstein developed a robot that can keep the ground in horse stables clean and flat. The so-called ‘Trackman’ is already fully operational. The students approached several companies interested in using the Trackman and drafted a business plan for this.
The robot was designed by students in the Animal Husbandry course at Van Hall Larenstein. The students won the 2017 student award for their product and plan.
- Innovation and sustainability go hand in hand, especially in Arnhem.
