During Automotive Week 2017 various organizations will jointly discuss how our future mobility can be organized and how radical innovations in the field of mobility can be facilitated in the Netherlands. For here all the ingredients are in place to develop new services. The Netherlands offers room to test new technologies in cities as well as on motorways. Public and private parties work together under the motto ‘learning by doing’ with the objective of stimulating innovations and to learn from it.

Theme Automotive Week 2017
This year’s theme is Where Smart Mobility meets Traffic. Developments in the world of Automotive, Telecom and Internet are moving very fast. While at the same time significant opportunities to improve the traffic flow, accessibility, liveability and traffic safety can be seized here. Nowadays, motorists and travellers are constantly 'connected' and expect road operators, transport operators and service providers to go along with that trend. Authorities, companies and research institutes prepare themselves for significant changes in the organization of our mobility needs. What does this mean for our current traffic and mobility management and how can the worlds of automotive and mobility co-operate more closely? These are the main questions during the Automotive Week in Helmond at the end of March 2017.
Completed with hot topics such as: international mobility trends, changing roles of road and transport operators, changing mobility needs, international cooperation in the field of standardization and architecture, customized mobility, test opportunities in cities and on motorways and public opinion and behaviour of road users when it comes to autonomous driving, the Automotive Week will offer something for everyone.
During the international mobility week authorities, companies and research & educational institutes will present and demonstrate their ideas and tangible solutions to national and international mobility experts.
Come and join us to discover, experience and contribute ideas to smart mobility!
