Intelligent Mobility

How can intelligent communication between vehicles themselves and between vehicles and the roadside offer solutions to mobility issues? That is the question that Beter Benutten ITS intends to answer in its continuation programme (2014-2017).  It is a topic that many believe to be complicated and technical. Five experts in the field have accepted the challenge, and have written the memorandum “Beter Benutten van Intelligente Mobiliteit” (Optimising Use of Intelligent Mobility).

With this memorandum (in English), which they compiled in their personal capacity at the request of Beter Benutten ITS, these experts hope to provide a basis for discussions on possible steps to be taken in respect of cooperative services as the Optimising Use programme continues. The memorandum is also available in Dutch.

Effects

In addition to a conceptual framework within which various aspects are clearly explained, the memorandum also provides insight into both the potential scope of effects (traffic flow, safety, air quality) and potential consequences in a variety of problem areas. Examples such as passenger vehicles, heavy freight traffic, emergency vehicles and expediting public transport at intersections are examined. The extent to which and manner in which these discussions will bring forth projects for the continued Optimising Use programme will become evident in the months to come.

Main theme

The overture to these developments is seen in the services within Brabant-In-Car III and Spookfiles  in the current programme. Naturally, the on-going ITS projects will be embedded in the coming years and logical subsequent steps will be taken. By linking the current activities with new initiatives to be set up while using intelligent mobility as both the point of departure and the main theme, the effects of all of the Optimising Use ITS projects can be reinforced and replicated.

Prerequisites

In addition, a number of prerequisites are described in the memorandum that require discussion and conclusions if steps are to be taken in the area of Intelligent Mobility. Beter Benutten will be organising discussions on the prerequisites in the coming months to ensure sufficient clarity, consensus and support when decisions are made this fall regarding the specifics of the continuation of the Optimising Use programme. Doing so requires an effective platform, a manageable number of participants, and completely open and active communication and information. The parties invited to the discussions will be limited for that reason. The results of the discussions will be shared with all relevant Optimising Use parties.

Logical

‘Optimising Use of Intelligent Mobility’ offers a feasible and logical, albeit challenging direction for solutions in the period from now until 2018. It is a logical step, including with regard to the Roadmap for Connecting Mobility (in Dutch) and international developments. Theoreticians and the market also believe that these cooperative efforts will form the basis for autonomous vehicle travel in the farther future.

Het wereldbeeld van kinderen is nog onvolledig en vraagt om ontdekking. Ze kijken onbevooroordeeld, stellen vragen die wij als volwassenen niet meer durven stellen of die niet meer bij ons opkomen. Kinderen hebben dan ook een bijzonder eerlijke blik! Ze zijn onbevangen en niet gevoelig voor wat anderen van hun ideeën vinden. Fantasie en creativiteit viert hoogtij, het maakt niet uit of iets onmogelijk is of (op het eerste oog) niet werkt. ConsultingKids benut deze onbevangenheid en andere manier van denken om te komen tot verfrissend leuke ideeën die organisaties verder helpen. Hoe?
