Early July, a team of students from YES!Delft Impact Lab presented the first results within the Purpose Case Smart Campus of Erasmus University Rotterdam. In this Smart Campus project, real-life data is used to make campus Woudestein even more livable and sustainable.
Visualizing campus data
The first great result that the student team has delivered is a 3D model of the campus. Useful data can be projected onto this model. It is already possible to visualize the energy consumption of the various buildings of the university through projection.
In the future we expect to be able to visualize more data on topics such as energy, mobility, and sustainability.
Thank you students!
On behalf of Erasmus University, we would like to thank the student team consisting of Surena Shrestha, Pratyush Kumar, Els van der Valk, Gedeon d'Abreu de Paulo and Maryam Aboueimehrizi for their hard work and the great result. We look forward to the next student team taking the next step with this project.
About the Smart Campus project
In 2022, Erasmus Real Estate & Facilities (RE&F) and Erasmus Centre for Data Analytics (ECDA) launched the Smart Campus project. During this project, with an initial duration of two years, we will investigate how we can make the Campus SMART. We focus on three main themes: Mobility, Sustainability and Wellbeing.
The project also aims to improve cooperation between the various professional services through education and research. Moreover, it aims to stimulate innovation in cooperation with start-ups and parties such as YES! Delft. In addition to the Erasmus Smart Campus, we want to realize a Connected Field Lab and Innovation Hub to help realize these goals.
