When Traffic and Automotive join forces - Creating new mobility opportunities together

At Intertraffic Amsterdam 2016 it was already apparent; the traffic and automotive industry are currently undergoing key technological transformations. More and more vehicles are connected to each other and to the Internet and advance towards higher automation levels.

In order to deal with the increasingly complex road situations, automated vehicles will have to rely not only on their own sensors but also on those of other vehicles. On top of this they will need to cooperate with each other. These so-called Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) allow road users and traffic managers to share information and coordinate their actions. C-ITS are based on technologies allowing vehicles to “talk” to each other and to the transport infrastructure.

Automated vehicles can become a real game changer as they bring new technology companies and new opportunities to the business. Fast moving developments in the automotive, telecom and Internet world will create opportunities to improve the traffic flow, accessibility, liveability and traffic safety. Road operators, transport operators, service providers and solution vendors are providing new products and services for the constantly 'connected' motorist and traveller. During the summit of Intertraffic we will discuss what the automated industry means for our current traffic and mobility management and how the world of automotive and mobility can cooperate more closely.

Best practices & pioneering mobility concepts  

1) Workshop Partnership Talking Traffic new
  ….And now for something completely different: how 50 cities, provinces and the national government operate in a partnership with 25+ private companies to accelerate the commercial deployment of 6 cellular based C-ITS use cases within 18 months. Not a pilot or a Proof of Concept, but a multi-year co-investment programme in an open market that delivers on intelligent urban intersections,  2 new nationwide data repositories for easy access for all. The workshop will introduce and explain new interfaces in the private value chain, the detailing of use cases as well as new alternatives to remote controlling of Traffic Light Installations.  
  Moderator: Caspar de Jonge - Partnership Talking Traffic  
  Speakers: Rob van Hout - Sweco, Steven Logghe - Be-Mobile and Jorn de Vries  - Flitsmeister  
2) Workshop Next Steps in European Truck Platooning  new

Truck platooning is a great opportunity for Europe. The European truck industry, ICT and telecom sectors are ready for the next step in smart mobility. The European Truck Platooning Challenge, which was held in 2016, was the first successful experiment with cross-border platooning. Five member states and six European truck manufacturers participated in the challenge, owing its success to constructive teamwork between public and private sectors. The challenge provided a unique opportunity to learn about truck platooning in general and interaction with other road users in particular.

During this workshop we will bring you up to date with the latest developments on Truck Platooning since the challenge was held. We will address lessons learnt from challenges and real-life cases in the Netherlands and other European countries and next steps in truck automation and European cooperation. Stay tuned for the moderator and speakers.

- I-GAME project and Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge:
  proven basis for cooperative automated driving in an international context
    Speaker: Elham Semsar Kazerooni from TNO  
- MAVEN project: sharing dynamic intelligence between vehicles and infrastructure  
  The EU-funded MAVEN project aims to develop solutions for managing level-4 automated vehicles (HAV) at (urban) signalized intersections. Iteratively, HAVs receive advice and/or commands from the road infrastructure to adjust their trajectory and manoeuvring policies, while the infrastructure dynamically adapts the traffic light timing. The MAVEN project will build a system prototype that will be used both for field tests and modelling. Results from the system analysis process including system decomposition, use case interactions (and the role of infrastructure) and the implications to system requirements (includes those derived through stakeholder consultation) will be presented.  
    Speaker from the MAVEN project: Jaap Vreeswijk - MAPtm     
3) Shockwave Traffic Jams A58 project: conclusions and recommendations new
  In this appealing session market parties and governments involved in theShockwave Traffic Jams A58 project will share the main conclusions and lessons learned with international Smart Mobility professionals. Project managers from companies and governments, road authorities and researchers can use this information as a basis to further develop ITS. We will take you along on our route and will discuss the following subjects:  
  • The cooperative I2V system in practice
  • A new way of innovation-based cooperation
  • Strong but healthy competition and standardization as a basis for a cooperative business case
  • In-car traffic management influencing driving behaviour
  • Smart agreements for a complex organization
  • Transition towards more involvement of market parties and less involvement of governments.
  Moderator: Bram Hendrix - Automotive NL  
  Speakers: Koen van Lierop - V-tron, Jan Bosma - Technolution, Peter Goossens - Vialis and 3 other suppliers from the Shockwave traffic jams A58 project  
4) Results of international cooperation in the ITS Corridor project new
  Together with the road authorities of Germany and Austria, Rijkswaterstaat is working on a joint initiative on development and joint deployment of several Cooperative Services on the Corridor Rotterdam-Frankfurt-Vienna. With this challenging project we contribute to use new technologies to solve mobility, environmental and safety issues. At the same time the Corridor project fits in the Dutch ambition to lead the way in Europe in the field of smart mobility.
The Dutch project team is developing three cooperative services: Road Works Warning, Probe Vehicle Data and Collision Risk Warning.
  Currently the Dutch project is in the phase of pre-deployment. During multiple tests on typical stretches of the Dutch part of the international Corridor the project team is acquiring useful information to finalize the specifications. On the other hand lessons learned are gathered which can be used for deployment phase.  
  During an interactive presentation, Abraham Bot and Edwin van der Walle will give you the latest insights of the project, the lessons learned, the international cooperation and the challenges for the next phases. And last but not least the joint cooperation with the InterCor project resulting in an international Joint Validation Event, a so called TestFest, coming July. After this presentation you will be up to speed about the Corridor Project.  
  Speakers: Abraham Bot and Edwin van der Walle from Rijkswaterstaat  
 17.15 - 17.35 hrs. Hyperloop One special new
  On Thursday 5th of January a Dutch Connekt delegation visited the test location of Hyperloop One in the US. Hyperloop One works on the deployment of a Hyperloop system on global scale and defines the development of Hyperloop as the first transport revolution after the airplane. Pods are fired through an almost vacuumed tube with a speed of more than 1.000 km/u. Long travel times belong to the past, while the trip is still enjoyable. Together with Hyperloop One, Connekt launched the Dutch Hyperloop challenge and in this session proudly presents the Dutch team as well as a representative from Hyperloop One.
