What is TrafficQuest?

 TrafficQuest is a cooperation between Rijkswaterstaat Water, Traffic & Environment, TNO and Delft University of Technology. TrafficQuest was initiated because there was a growing need to bundle and disseminate knowledge about traffic management and information, so that future projects, field trials and research can benefit from it. A lot is going on in the field of traffic management; the three organisations work together in TrafficQuest to ensure that the existing knowledge does not get lost and is made accessible to practitioners. Also, new research topics are defined.
