Living in the future
During this guided tour at The Green Village we will explore the most recent developments in sustainability, self-driving vehicles and other ideas that are directly developed and tested at The Green Village. With the goal to quickly be able to test and develop the latest radical ideas The Green Village is the living laboratory of the Delft University of Technology.
Researchlab self automated driving
The RADD offers knowledge institutions, small and mid-size business entrepreneurs and local governments the facilities to test products and concepts in real-life traffic conditions in a series of varying environments and conditions. Such as closed off environments for preliminary testing and a semi-closed environment at The Green Village and eventually testing on the public roads on and around the campus of the Delft University of Technology.
Through a vacuum tube with a cruising speed of around 1200 km/h from A to B, the Delft Hyperloop should be able to achieve this goal. At The Green Village there is not only the largest echo cave of Delft but also the test setup of the Delft Hyperloop. At this facility all critical systems are tested at low speed in a vacuum like the Delft Hyperloop propulsion system.
Sustainer homes is a testing facility in which various innovations are tested. The residence itself is also a piece of top of the line innovation because it reduces the amount of CO2 emissions by 90% compared to regular residences made from steel and concrete.
Circular garage box
The goal of the Circular garage box is to check and see if its possible to reuse buildings for another purpose. By doing this, researcher will get an insight in the feasibility and chances of reusing existing materials in buildings.
