Cooperating and Sharing Knowledge to accelerate the implementation of Smart Mobility on a bigger Scale
The Netherlands hosts a number of national Round Tables for Smart Mobility. These are manned by key stakeholders with the mandate of industrial partners, government agencies, and knowledge institutes. Together, they develop conditions and guarantees to enable the next step towards deployment, by working on current themes. The Round Tables for Smart Mobility are an efficient platform to develop a framework for what concerns us all.
How can I prepare for cyber crime? What is the amount of information a driver can handle? Which standards are available? How to deal with the big amount of data and privacy issues? What are the effects of upscaling applications and users on throughput and safety?
Topics are inspired by actual Smart Mobility projects in the Netherlands and beyond. Use cases to be rolled out in the Netherlands and in Europe are the common thread in conversation. These use cases are prioritised by stakeholders and in relation to international scoping, business interest and governmental strategy. In use cases such as Shockwave mitigation and Green Light Optimal Speed Advise, the Round Tables work on security and privacy issues, architectural choices, profiles, measuring methods and optimising human comfort and social and economic effects. They are willing to bring their experience to the table and invest in a shared framework. Results of the Round Table discussions are collated by a Tactical Board and used in new projects. Through this working process, we are able to optimise our input for European workforces and respond quickly to international issues, with broad support.
Development of this framework is not a national issue, but an international challenge. The Round Tables take on what is international available, and enrich this with national findings. The participants work closely together with international stakeholders, organised like the EU C-ITS Platform of standardisation, and by liaisons to important projects on large scale implementation, like the ITS Corridor and InterCor Projects.
