Beter Bereikbaar Zuidoost-Brabant (BBZOB) is one of the partners of the Automotive Week. April 1 has been pronounced to Day of the Road Authorities. In cooperation with partners, Compass4D, CROW, ViM, MAPtm, Connecting Mobility, Connekt, Province of Noord-Brabant and Rijkswaterstaat, BBZOB organizes one of the three workshops: Beter Benutten (Optimising use) Cooperative-ITS. Workshop 2 is about practical aspects of introducing ITS applications (Compass4D). And workshop 3 is about testing with self-driving vehicles (CROW, Connekt, Rijkswaterstaat). This day is dedicated to smart vehicles on smart infrastructure. What kind of problems can we solve with which innovative & smart solutions?
Berry de Jong, projectmanager BBZOB says: “It surprises me that people focus on others traffic behavior. Those comments are on top of the top 10 of worst traffic annoyances. As a traffic specialist, I think it’s frustrating if I have to wait for a traffic light while there is no other traffic. Can we do you better than that? And which role do you have to take as a road authority?
“In theory, it seems easy to organize our traffic and transport more efficiently, less traffic jams, safer traffic and more comfortable driving for road users. The technology is now available. What do we need for deployment? It’s time to identify potential opportunities and put those into practice. If we can unite road authorities and the automotive industry and if we come up with practical solutions to our mobility problems, the Automotive Week has been very successful to me. “
