The Netherlands: Smart solutions for global changes
To sustain mobility and preserve the quality of life in the Netherlands in the future, we endeavour to make the most of the possibilities offered by information and communication technology (ICT). We refer to this use of ICT solutions as Smart Mobility.
The Netherlands believes that innovations in road mobility should improve traffic flows on our roads in terms of safety, efficiency and environmental impact. Although smart mobility has many benefits, there are still many challenges and questions to be answered. To a certain degree, governments, companies and knowledge experts worldwide are looking at the same challenges and questions. "Smart mobility calls for close, clear coordination", stresses Minister Melanie Schultz of Infrastructure and Environment. By sharing and working together, challenges and questions are more easily tackled.
