MobilitymoveZ.NL receives 44 registrations from interested market parties

The Dutch testing environment, MobilitymoveZ.NL, posted a request for registering interest on TenderNet and TED, platforms for (European) tenders, on 11 July 2017. MobilitymoveZ.NL’s ambition is – in cooperation with national and international market parties – to facilitate the testing of new, innovative mobility solutions. These must be ready to implement at a large scale within four years. This includes for example ‘level 4 autonomous driving’ in urban regions or on-demand services and electric vehicles. Since its posting, 44 parties have indicated their interest.

Start of big (inter)national smart mobility testing area

Autonomous cars, trucks that communicate with one another via WiFi and drive in platoons and traffic lights that communicate with approaching traffic. These are only a few concrete examples of technological developments that make traffic smoother, safer and more sustainable and that are succeeding one another with ever-increasing rapidity. On Monday, a new testing area was presented that will enable these innovations by facilitating the practical application of the various services and techniques: ‘MobilitymoveZ.NL, Urban Mobility Testing Area’. This is an initiative jointly set up by the province of North Brabant, the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management and the municipalities of Eindhoven, Helmond and Tilburg.

'Design thinking, design doing'

Some of the SmartwayZ.NL sub-projects use ‘social design thinking’. But what is it? What is it used for? And, most important, what benefits does it yield? Julie Hornix of design agency VanBerlo explains how it works.

SimSmartMobility: unique simulation platform

SimSmartMobility is a simulation platform developed by Connecting Mobility, the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). It connects data, systems and traffic models in order to simulate smart mobility solutions - extremely rapidly. Both TNO and Connecting Mobility are involved in the SmartwayZ.NL programme but SimSmartMobility was developed separately from SmartwayZ.NL.

Featured projects

A58 Tilburg - Breda

The smartest solutions are being sought to increase accessibility between the Sint-Annabosch traffic junction and the Tilburg-West exit on the A58 Tilburg - Breda. The InnovA58 approach does not envisage the widening of this section. Market exploration provides the opportunity for the development of innovative alternatives instead of simply laying more asphalt.

InnovA58

The A58 motorway connects Tilburg, Breda, Eindhoven, ’s-Hertogenbosch and Helmond to one another and to other regions such as Amsterdam and Rotterdam. It is also an important link road to neighbouring countries. There are regularly traffic jams between the Sint-Annabosch and Galder junctions and between Eindhoven and Tilburg which result in enormous economic damage. The focus of InnovA58 is, therefore, to widen these sections of the A58.

South-east Brabant Accessibility Agreement

The south-east Brabant Accessibility Agreement describes a number of starting points and related measures for creating a future-proof mobility system for the Eindhoven-Veghel-Asten triangle. An integrated mobility approach is used to target Smart Mobility and co-modality (making use of different forms of transport).

A2 Bypass Eindhoven

The National Market and Capacity Analysis (NMCA) of 2017 shows that after realization of the sub-projects InnovA58, N279 and the A67 a coherent road task arises for the Eindhoven A2 ring in combination with the A58 and A50. The Program Council decided on 27 September 2017 to start up a problem analysis for the A2 motorway.
