This Innovation Partnership with the traffic industry, telecommunications and internet companies, and automotive companies develops and supplies innovative traffic applications in the next five years. Talking Traffic applications provide continuous en-route guidance and assistance to road users, and in the near future also to vehicles. This increases their ability to anticipate traffic situations, which in turn improves traffic flows and safety. Key element in the partnership is the development of a new generation of traffic lights, that can communicate continuously with approaching vehicles and cyclists, optimizing traffic flows across intersections and the entire urban network.
By using modern telecommunications and cloud technologies in combination with information crowdsourcing, new services will be able to offer driving task support as well as navigation in the entire country and in cities.
The world around us is changing rapidly. Government and market parties join forces as Partners in Innovation and seize opportunities in the field of mobility in the widest sense. The Innovation Partnership also aims to accelerate developments and applications regarding amongst others selfdriving cars and Mobility as a Service.
