High Tech Campus

High Tech Campus Eindhoven (HTCE) is the smartest km² in Europe with more than 220 companies and institutes, as well as 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 (e.g. Philips, NXP, TomTom, Shimano, Signify, IBM, Intel) strategically decide what knowledge, skills and R&D facilities they share in order to achieve faster, improved and expanded customer-oriented innovation in the health, energy and smart environments application fields. 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 measure the campus area continously and in real-time through sensors, monitoring the quality of life (of people, security and sustainability). The operating system will use these measurements (through a digital twin) which enables the possibilities to proactively manage the operation of the campus, scenario planning and predictive maintenance in a virtual boardroom (in VR/AR). The following elements will be included:

  • Following the flow of people on 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. This is in compliance with the GDPR
  • Measuring the carbon footprint based on several sensors (air, sound, heat, etc.)
  • Measuring the agricultural/nature sustainability
  • Measuring 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

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

  • Increase the HTC networks role within society by becoming sustainable and carbon neutral and connect with the city and the Brainport area
  • Lead in and stay ahead of the latest technology
  • Optimal usage of (financial) exploitation of the m2 of the campus

Results

  • The autonomous drone fleet service is operational and in production on 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 and security as well as maintenance and scenario planning to reach the sustainability targets.
  • The business case is validated
  • The service is scalable towards other cities and 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 used by the operating system (through a digital twin) of the campus, which enables the possibilities to proactively manage the campus operation. To ensure safety on campus, one AED drone will 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 and goods).

Background

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

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

Results

  • The service drones and AED drone are operational and in production on 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 humans (users of the campus). The service platform can provide emergency and 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 and reach the sustainability targets
