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