Wanted: innovative residents for our Brandevoort LAB!

In the Brandevoort LAB of Brainport Smart District residents of the present Brandevoort district are invited and challenged to join us in developing new products and services that may be realised in the new smart district Brandevoort.

The Brandevoort LAB is a ‘living lab’ for the future of residential living. Together with residents of present-day Brandevoort, the foundation Brainport Smart District and its partners (knowledge institutions and businesses) will test concepts and products, refine ideas, and explore the future, both online and offline.

With our co-creative and participatory way of working, we will ensure together that innovations for the new district will later be well matched to the wishes, needs and daily life of the residents.

How you can join in the Brandevoort LAB will vary from one project to the another, depending on what you want and what organisations want to know or test. It may for example be a survey, a product test or a meeting with residents to discover their wishes and ideas.

In the Brandevoort LAB we focus on a healthy, socially inclusive and safe district, with smart mobility, where data belongs to the residents, an energy-positive district that uses water smartly, a circular district or a mix of these.

Brandevoort LAB will kick off in the summer of 2019. Are you interested in getting to work together with us and our partners? Do you have ideas about smart living and working? Would you like to develop, test and evaluate new concepts, techniques and materials? And do you want to know what new developments there are already in terms of energy, mobility, data, safety, health and/or circular construction? Then register here.

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.

Living in a learning city

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.

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.

How can a district encourage its residents – who have different backgrounds and abilities – mentally and physically to maintain and/or improve their health? In search of an environmentally focused approach to healthy districts, a consortium of eight partners led by professor  M. Mohammadi of Eindhoven University of Technology got to work to develop a knowledge agenda for ‘Space for Health’. This approach will be applied in the new part of Brandevoort, in Brainport Smart District.

TU/e students collaborating in ‘team CASA’ are designing and developing a house that will be constructed as a concept in Brandevoort, as a BSD example. CASA stands for Comfortable, Affordable and Sustainable Alternative for Housing in the Netherlands. In September/October 2019 the house, which contains three units, will be built in a short time in the new part of Brandevoort, the district that will be created following BSD principles, which the house of the students is fully compliant with.
