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.

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.

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.

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 and 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.

Subsidy project ZonMw

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.
