High Tech Campus

High Tech Campus Eindhoven (HTCE) is the smartest km² in Europe with more than 220 companies and institutes, and 12.000 researchers, developers and entrepreneurs working on developing future technologies and products. The Campus helps you accelerate your innovation by offering easy access to high tech facilities and international networks. Campus companies (like Philips, NXP, TomTom, Shimano, Signify, IBM, Intel) strategically decide what knowledge, skills and R&D facilities they share in order to achieve faster, better and more customer-oriented innovation in the application fields Health, Energy and Smart Environments. Located at the heart of Brainport, Campus companies are responsible for nearly 40% of all Dutch patent applications. HTCE is responsible for demonstrators 6 and 7.

Demonstrator 6

Autonomous monitoring and predictive interventions of critical infrastructures within the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven

Description

The main goal of this demonstrator is to use UAS to take measurements. Autonomous drones that constantly, and in real-time, measure the campus area with sensors that monitor the quality of life on the campus (people, security and sustainability). The measurements will be input for the operating system (through a digital twin) of the campus which enables the possibilities to proactively manage the operation of the campus, enable scenario planning and predictive maintenance in a virtual boardroom (in VR/AR). The following elements will be included:

  • Follow the flow of the people, in compliance with the GDPR, on the campus to measure the different flows of the campus so scenarios can be developed to improve the quality of life and services on the campus.
  • Measure the carbon footprint based on several sensors (air, sound, heat, etc.)
  • Measure the agricultural/nature sustainability.
  • Measure the quality of the buildings in case (in the test we check if we can use the drones from https://www.aerones.com/ to directly maintain the buildings).

Background

On the campus, 12.000 people from 225+ companies work with the latest technologies daily. The High Tech Campus has developed its vision for the upcoming 10 years:

  • To increase the HTC networks role within society by becoming sustainable and carbon neutral & to connect with the city and Brainport area.
  • Leading in the latest technology, to stay ahead.
  • Optimal usage of (financial) exploitation of the m2 of the campus.

Results

  • The autonomous drone fleet service is operational and in production on the High Tech Campus based on the Geo-infra, governance and regulatory framework.
  • The operating system and virtual boardroom are in place and the board of directors can make real-time decisions on safety & security, maintenance & scenario planning to reach the sustainability targets.
  • The business case is validated.
  • The service is scalable towards other cities & sectors.

Demonstrator 7

The Future Last Mile & Emergency delivery on Campuses

Description

There will be three drones (one per service) that will deliver services to the users of the HTC:

  • Last-mile delivery on lunch/food.
  • Last-mile delivery of mail.
  • Emergency delivery of AED equipment.

The measurements will be input for the operating system (through a digital twin) of the campus which enables the possibilities to proactively manage the operation of the campus. To ensure the safety of the campus one AED drone be made operational in case of an emergency (e.g. heart attack) the drone will deliver the AED equipment to the scene. Additionally, to decrease the carbon footprint of the HTC, we will develop autonomous drones for delivery services in daily life (food & goods).

Background

On the campus, 12.000 people from 225+ companies work with the latest technologies daily. The High Tech Campus has developed its vision for the upcoming 10 years:

  • To increase the HTC networks role within society by becoming sustainable and carbon neutral (air quality, energy reduction, maintenance of buildings, noise & scenario planning of future planning of the area).
  • Leading in the latest technology. To stay ahead and enable the required infrastructure for digital innovations.
  • The increase the social interaction, the air connection with the city and Brainport area and to increase the quality of life on the campus; a place where people want to be and stay healthy.
  • To constant add value (through better services) & decrease operational costs.

Results

  • The service drones and AED drone are operational and in production on the High Tech Campus based on the Geo-infra, governance and regulatory framework.
  • The drone service platform is in place which enables the interaction between technologies (drones) and human (users of the campus). The service platform can serve emergency & regular services.
  • The operating system and virtual boardroom are in place and the board of directors can make real-time decisions to improve quality of life on the campus & reach the sustainability targets.
