Tunnel Challenge boring? Not according to the participants: ‘There is a lot of technology behind a tunnel’.

For third-year students of Electrical Engineering and Technical Informatics, 12 and 13 April at Avans Hogeschool in Den Bosch were all about the Tunnel Challenge. Thinking about automation in tunnels was the challenge. There is much more to it than meets the eye”. ICT Group, INNOCY together with partner Schneider Electric were proud sponsors of this event.

On the top floor at Avans on the Onderwijsboulevard in Den Bosch, groups of students are working fully focused behind their laptops on Tuesday morning. In the middle of the classroom there is a large digital screen, on which a tunnel can be seen. It is a simulator that the students operate. Every now and then, several cars race past. When third-year Technical Computer Science student Youri Leenman presses a button on his laptop, a bright light suddenly shines in the digital tunnel. It took a while for this to work, but now that it has, it’s great fun to do”, he says, laughing.
