PROJECTS (C)ITS

ZOOF A16

Rijkswaterstaat works daily on an accessible Netherlands. We do this not only through the construction of new roads and waterways, but also through more efficient use of existing infrastructure. Innovative systems for travel information and traffic management can help us. At present we are working – in coordination with Germany and Austria – on the introduction of a number of cooperative ITS services on a so-called ‘corridor’, the route that runs from Rotterdam, via Breda, Tilburg and Eindhoven to Venlo (A16 – A58 – A2 – A67 ): V-tron has stepped in as an HMI (Human Interface) supplier. V-tron provides the interface towards the driver. If there are reports from the roadside (A16 – A58 – A67), this is shown to the driver in the ZOOF app and he / she can adjust her driving behavior accordingly. More information about this project can be found on the site of the ITS Corridor.

FIELDTEST A58

Are sensor data from vehicles technically useful for traffic management or other services in the future? That is the central question during a test with the Probe Vehicle Data service, commissioned by the C-ITS Corridor project team at Rijkswaterstaat. READ MORE.. During the test – which was coordinated from the Innovation Center in Helmond – the On Board Units of passing test vehicles sent messages with information about the vehicle, such as position and speed. The messages were received by the secure ETSI G5 wifi connection. In addition, messages were also collected from the test vehicles via the mobile 3 / 4G network. For this, the ZOOF app of the Spookfiles A58 project has been used. The first findings are positive. The logging of the messages sent by the test cars proved to be easy to read. And via a web viewer the exact locations and traveled routes of the test vehicles were shown.

ZOOF A58

ZOOF is an app for iPhone and Android phones that advises you as a road user on the optimal driving speed, about handling at entry and exit lanes and about your following distance after traffic jams. With ZOOF you score points by following these advice, which you can exchange for nice rewards with the partners of ZOOF. Currently ZOOF is only available for A67 and A58, allowing you to drive from Tilburg to Eindhoven and Venlo with ZOOF. ZOOF is a product that results from a collaboration between the regional governmental authority BBZOB (Beter Benutten Zuid-Oost Brabant), SRE (Samenwerkingsverband Regio Eindhoven), the Province of Noord-Brabant and the business community. Together, the government and the business community are going to improve flow on the Dutch motorways. Within the projects Brabant InCar III and Spookfiles A58, ZOOF carries out a test on behalf of the government on the A67 and A58, which focuses on improving this flow. You can participate in this trial! ZOOF can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and Apple AppStore. Register via the app, start your route and score those ZOOFies! More information about this project can be found on the ZOOF website.
