Cooperative ITS and Automatic Driving

cooperatieve_systemen_automatisch_rijden_100

Cooperative ITS and Automatic Driving receive a lot of attention at this moment. Initiatives are developed and a number of different stakeholders (individual or in some form of cooperation) are working on these topics around the world. TrafficQuest has published in 2011 a state-of-the-art report on the topic of cooperative ITS, but in the last couple of years rapid developments took place, which made an update more than welcome. Also automatic driving is now a hot topic and considering the connections between automatic driving and cooperative ITS both topics are discussed (in Dutch!) in the report State-of-the-Art achtergronddocument “Coöperatieve systemen en Automatisch rijden”.

Organisation of Traffic Management

The organisation of traffic management is defined as the assignment, the interpretation, the realisation and the harmonization of the tasks, responsibilities and qualifications of the different stakeholders involved in the policy or operational aspects of traffic management. Often it is a neglected part of traffic management, but in our view a very important one. In this state of the art document (only available in Dutch) we discuss the traffic management process and the organisation of traffic information. Also incident management is described, as an important topic within traffic management, but with a specific organisational structure. The report describes all these aspects and the different stakeholders involved.

Verkeer in Nederland 2014

TrafficQuest streeft er naar regelmatig een actueel beeld te geven van wat er gaande is in de wereld van verkeersmanagement en verkeersinformatie. De State-of-the-Art achtergronddocumenten spelen daarbij een belangrijke rol, want deze bestrijken een breed scala aan VMI gerelateerde onderwerpen. Echter, ze zijn gedetailleerd en sterk inhoudelijk en ze worden niet regelmatig geactualiseerd. Daarom heeft TrafficQuest besloten elk jaar een rapportage uit te brengen waarin de stand van zaken op het vlak van verkeersmanagement en verkeersinformatie wordt weergegeven. Het jaarbericht voor 2014 is nu uitgebracht en wordt binnenkort verstuurd met NM magazine.

 

Cooperative systems and automated driving in 2014

Cooperative systems and automated driving are hot topics. Many parties are involved or want to be involved in the development of systems for these subjects. They are also high on the list of the team that is responsible for the realisation of the ‘Connecting Mobility’ programme of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. On May 27, 2014 TrafficQuest presented to this team the state-of-the-art in cooperative systems and automated driving (the presentation is in Dutch). In 2011 TrafficQuest wrote a report about these topics, but much has happened since and a large part of the information in that report is already outdated. The presentation gives an overview of the developments in this areas in recent years. This information will be used to update the report.
