operation with Educational
Numerous practical trainings, theses,
summer jobs, joint innovation and
development projects, permanent
employments, company visits, career
counsellor visits, planning the content of

powerful control units and sensors like
MEMS-sensors are more widely used in
mobile machine control systems. This
enables the possibility to create highly-
developed control system features, e.g.
effective user assistance solutions. IoT
solutions provide real-time data from the
mobile machines. This data can be used for
e.g. work process optimization, machine
health monitoring, etc. The modern safety
functions of a control system ensure
reliable and safe usage of the machine,
both for the user and for the work
operation with educational institutions
provides a wide range of advantages. That
