Smart Mobility Center: at the heart of smart

In the Innovation Hall a Smart Mobility Center will be created with the latest products and services, mobility projects and trends and developments related to smart, safe and sustainable mobility. In and from this hall interactive presentations, panel discussions, demonstrations and various network activities will be organized.

Innovations and demonstrations
A theatre and stands in the Innovation Hall and on the outdoor premises by the entrance to Intertraffic will feature a variety of presentations and demonstrations, with a clear focus on the theme 'connectivity'. Connectivity is crucial in order to realise mobility goals such as efficient routing and traffic information, customized mobility, and sustainable and safe environments for residents. In addition, the stands, demonstrations and presentations will also focus on travel behaviour, the interaction between technology and its users, new technological solutions and an integrated approach between a wide range of disciplines.

These demonstrations and a seminar programme allow us to provide public authorities, road authorities and other stakeholders with a clear picture and understanding of the meaning, effects and options for the application of Intelligent Mobility. Dissemination of knowledge contributes to new, effective solutions in the field of accessibility, safety and quality of life in and between cities.

Dutch joined forces in Smart Mobility Center

In the Smart Mobility Center, Dutch public and private parties and knowledge institutes have joined forces in staging ITS solutions for inner cities, urban areas and the main road network. Hereby, the Netherlands underlines the ambition to head the field in the area of cooperative ITS and smart mobility.

Participants in the Smart Mobility Center are the Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam and the Beter Benutten programme with solution vendors such as HERE, Ericsson, Be-Mobile, Innovactory, V-Tron, Technolution, Monotch, TrafficLink and Route42. At the Dutch EU Pavilion, Connekt and Connecting Mobility have teamed up together with DITCM Innovations and the Traffic Innovation Center and many other parties such as NMi, OMALA, RDW, CGI, Goudappel Group, Flister, Satel, Simacan, EU Truck Platooning Challenge 2016, National Data Warehouse for Traffic Information, Eindhoven University of Technology, TNO, Grontmij, Vialis and VID. The Dutch presence in hall 9 will be joined by international companies and projects such as TomTom, Cisco, ARS T&TT, Rutoll, and the Cooperative ITS Corridor.

Highlights Smart Mobility Theatre

From Tuesday 5 until Thursday 7 April, the Smart Mobility Theatre will cover themes such as ITS Developments, Automated & Cooperative Driving, Smart Mobility Services, Big Data, Traffic and Transport Efficiency. The Friday programme is co-organized by Acquire Publishing, WOW and CROW and is especially focused on Dutch national, regional and local road operators.

Four solutions for mobility goals

Intertraffic will invite companies, government authorities, trade associations, knowledge institutes and students to attend the Smart Mobility Center and present mobility solutions that contribute to the four mobility goals indicated below (which will be clearly recognisable to visitors on the exhibition floor):

Traffic & Transport Efficiency

Traffic, event and incident management via in-car solutions makes full use of the existing infrastructure. Companies and public authorities are increasingly encouraged to maintain a high standard of sustainability. Smarter and easier travel with the help of efficient routing and traffic information will ensure that a journey proceeds smoothly for both passengers and carriers. Examples:

  • Dynamic Traffic Management
  • Real time traffic information
  • Multimodal Transport
  • Park & Ride
  • In-car information systems
  • Autonomous & Cooperative Driving
  • Talking Traffic: communicating vehicles, in-car traffic management, and collective traffic services
  • Intelligent parking systems
  • Congestion Management
  • Event & Incident Management
  • Monitoring and enforcement
Transport
Customised

Customised mobility

An increasing number of travellers have access to the internet, apps, and navigation and communication systems via their smartphones or tablets. Based on real time information and personal preferences of travellers, solution vendors are able to customize mobility services. The increase in car use is slowing down, and the use of other modes of transport is expanding. New parties are entering the market with whom established players have to compete. In the medium term, mobility budgets and systems for paying in accordance with (mobility) usage can be expected. Examples:

  • Social media and mobility
  • Personal mobility services
  • Smart solutions for public transport
  • Multimodal travel services
  • In-car information systems versus roadside systems
  • Integrated ticketing & smart payment systems
  • Smart Travelling, Smart Working
  • Eco driving & coaching
  • Car sharing and ride sharing
  • Pay as you drive and insure as you drive
  • Pricing and toll systems

Ecomobility

Ecomobility refers to all systems and solutions targeting sustainable mobility. From a mobility system perspective, there are many ways to increase ecomobility. You can prevent mobility (for instance, via new working methods) or reduce mobility (by means of new connections). You can change the transport choice (a modal shift from cars to bicycles and public transport) or increase the sustainability of modes of transport (e.g., electric vehicles). The use of mobility solutions such as electric vehicles, public transport, walking or (electric) bicycles should be encouraged/enforced in order to clamp down on traditional polluting transport and to increase the quality of life. Examples:

  • Social media and mobility
  • Personal mobility services
  • Smart solutions for public transport
  • Multimodal travel services
  • In-car information systems versus roadside systems
  • Integrated ticketing & smart payment systems
  • Smart Travelling, Smart Working
  • Eco driving & coaching
  • Car sharing and ride sharing
  • Pay as you drive and insure as you drive
  • Pricing and toll systems
Eco mobility
Safety

Safety

Safety comprises all systems and solutions that focus on safety and the reduction of traffic accidents and injuries. Achieving 'vision zero', i.e. no deaths, serious accidents or injuries in road traffic, is part of this. Vulnerable traffic participants demand extra protection. It is well-known, for instance, that the elderly, motorcycle drivers, cyclists and children are more at risk in relative terms. Changing driver behaviour and mapping it by means of comprehensive studies is crucial in order to improve traffic safety. New in-vehicle technologies influence the way we will use our cars; it will influence both road safety as well as the vehicle's comfort. For this, human behaviour and road safety are one of the key enablers for a successful transition to smart mobility. Examples:

  • Incident management
  • Enforcement systems such as camera supervision and monitoring
  • In-car safety systems
  • Autonomous & cooperative driving
  • Driver assistance systems
  • Safe routing
  • Solutions for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists
  • Lighting
  • Sensors
