Sharing mobility with ECARCELL

Sharing mobility with ECARCELL

the smartest way sharing green mobility
ECARCELL is a total concept for sharing electric transport. The purpose of Ecarcell is to offer green mobility at minimal cost. You can become a member of a small group, or ‘cell’,  which jointly leases suitable electric transport which is then shared based on use and costs.

Every cell chooses its own means of transport, and thus – due to the multi-modal and modular approach – the cell can match the transport to its requirements. The members of the cell can also decide to make its vehicles available to third parties at certain times, which drives down costs even further. And by linking the cells to one another in a smart way mobility networks can be created that supplement regional public transport or may even replace it. Together with residents, local companies and authorities Ecarcell will flesh out this ambitious project of Brainport Smart District. We are striving to realise 100 cells in Brandevoort and surrounding areas within 4 years.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Net energy generating homes
Net energy generating living aims for a self-sufficient residential district. That is to say that the district generates all the energy it consumes.

In fact, more energy than is needed for heating, hot water and all electrical equipment in and around the house. The residents can use the extra energy for example to charge their electric car. It is important that the surplus energy is stored and shared with other residents, so that no energy is lost and there is always enough energy available for every single household within the district. Every house has its own circular home battery. These batteries are collected to a collective ‘smart grid’, in which the residents can share energy throughout the district. Using smart software, ‘off-grid’ demand and supply are matched the best way possible. By clever matching of generation, storage and consumption the district is fully self-sufficient in terms of energy. In this clip director René Beks talks about the houses.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Ouderen, voornamelijk 65 plussers, trainen in groepsverband bij een sportschool in Wassenaar 10 mei 2017. Steeds meer ouderen vinden hun weg naar een fitnesscentrum. Bewegen voor ouderen in de vorm van krachttraining – waar nodig volgens een individueel aangepast programma en onder begeleiding – kan er voor zorgen dat ouderen geen spieren meer verliezen, maar juist sterker en stabieler worden. Resultaat van goede krachttraining is dat men fit en vitaal blijft en ‘krakkemikkigheid’ en ‘fragiliteit’ buiten de deur houdt.

Ageing in place

The total complex of factors – the shift from inpatient care to outpatient care, the ageing population, the increase of the number of people with dementia and the number of single person and two person households in addition to changing demands and wishes in the area of hybrid residential/care environments – must be brought together and translated in a new concept for homes for life: LIVin.

LIVin fills in the gaps between ‘living’ and ‘care’. Livin Concepts invests sustainably in homes as a carer and in the direct surroundings as a social ecosystem so that the home and the surroundings both contribute to preventing, solving and ameliorating the ailments that come with increasing age.Our choices for modular timber construction, energy-neutral construction with energy generation through solar panels, use of natural building materials, energy-efficient systems, use of domotica, wall finishings and use of colour reflect what we are trying to achieve: Sustainable living in a safe environment at an affordable price.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

New possibilities by linking data

Just imagine: your alarm clock goes earlier because it is going to be a busy day, the traffic light turns green just as you get to it, street lights are off when there is no one outside, but light up when you are jogging past. Wouldn’t it be great if your windows shut automatically when a cloud of particulate matter floats by, and open when the air is fresh and clean?

The data platform makes it possible to share and combine data from all available sensors in real time. Data combinations allow us to develop new applications and make the district smarter. It would allow for data-driven police deployment, for making homes smarter based on data on energy consumption or air quality, and last-mile improvements.The data is shared and disclosed based on conditions set by the owner, which guarantees the privacy of the data owner and compliance with regulations. By remaining innovative and combining the latest and best tools, long drawn-out integration processes can be relegated to the past and security and privacy by design can be ensured. This will create an accessible data platform that is open to all. Director Niels Keurentjes explains the project in this video clip.

The feasibility of the proposal is currently being investigated. If the outcome is positive, the proposal may well become a reality.

Big data is big business. Businesses use personal data for profit, often without citizens’ knowledge. We want to change this. This project aims to study and develop new models in which the actual residents of the district rather than big business can profit from data. What if data were to be used for the good of the community?

UNSense wants to set the next step in planning and opinion forming on smart cities, and explore what a smart city, with all its processes and information, might actually look like.  For this, it introduces as part of Brainport Smart District a real life test environment of 100 homes consisting of a cross-section of society ranging from single householders to families and from young to old. In this district we will study together with the residents how data can be used to improve the living environment and people’s welfare in cities in psychological, physical, social and economic terms.

Brainport Smart District meeting well attended

On 28 February Brainport Smart District presented how it will start developing the world’s smartest district in Brandevoort. Ben van Berkel of UNStudio presented the urban vision. One of the projects to start is the ‘model home’ developed by team CASA of the TU/e, with three residential units, that will be built in a single day in 2019. The companies Omines, Hendriks Coppelmans, UNSense, Ecarcell and Livin Concepts will start up projects. Omines who will build a data platform. ‘Forty plots project’. A second project is the ‘plots plan’: 40 plots have been offered for sale to interested private individuals who want to take part in a co-creative and experimental building process.

Residents draw up joint plan for forty plots

In the autumn of 2018 we started looking for our first residents by calling for DIY plot pioneers to come forward. In this first ‘living lab’ 31 households are currently co-creating the first BSD district. They have found a location where they want to live together. The size of the plots is matched to the personal and shared (living) wishes of the future group of residents and their budgets. The plots project offers future residents a great deal of freedom, but we also expect them to take responsibility. The residents themselves are the initiators and therefore responsible for the realisation of their individual .collective dream spaces. This means they will have to think about and deal with water storage, energy-generating homes and public or shared green spaces. Watch our video

The urban vision developed by UNStudio features a number of strips running from north to south that divide the area into several zones, each with a different building density. Shared facilities can be created in the district, such as kitchens, gardens, reading rooms and gyms. There will also be a mix of residential and work, with decentralised business space with offices and shared work spaces aimed at innovative collaborations. In the heart of the district will be a park of some 12 hectares with gardens, natural landscape and sports grounds. The park will be collectively owned by the users: everybody can become a member. At the fringes of the districts there will be 80 hectares for growing food (high-tech agriculture), water storage, nature and energy generation.
