One of our longest running testbeds, Skewiel Mobiel, started a few years before the CRISP research community was formed. It became a satisfying service for elderly who are otherwise unable to leave their homes. Many customers are attached to the service and they have adopted it in such a way that it started to play an indelible role in their daily lives. Weaknesses have also been found, such as the low and sometimes dangerous top speed of 40 kph, the limited range of destinations, and the Spartan comfort of the customized electric golf cart, the GEM e4. After 4 years of running and running research, it was time to replace it for an new and improved electric vehicle.

After the improvement of mobility PSS Skewiel Mobiel, care provider Zorggroep Tellens decided to copy the service to the area of Littenseradiel. The official opening of Tellens Belbus will be on October 30th in Weidum.
