INTERCOR PROJECT - BEHIND THE SCENES
V-tron, together with its partners, has been involved in the European Intercor
project since 2017. Together with Rijkswaterstaat we travel the four participating
countries and the associated project partners. From Rijkswaterstaat a beautiful two-
part overview video has been made. The development of the service is well
represented in this. Only you achieve nothing, the power of collaboration is
confirmed once again in this project.

Talking Maps is a trial by the cooperating province of Noord-Brabant, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and the companies V-TRON and AND and will last a maximum of two years. The organizations involved signed a cooperation agreement on Intertraffic at the RAI in Amsterdam on 20 March.
According to Ruben Kragten, representative in the cooperation from V-TRON, the agreement is a good example of a collaboration between market parties and governments. “We want to test and apply our technical solutions in traffic. And we can not do that alone. We are happy to work together with the government, “he says
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
With ZOOF you score points (ZOOFies) by following these recommendations, which you can exchange for nice rewards with the partners of ZOOF. At the moment ZOOF can be used on the A67 and A58, allowing you to drive from Tilburg to Eindhoven and Venlo with ZOOF.
ZOOF is a product that arises from a collaboration between the regional government agency 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 looking for a better flow on the Dutch motorways. Within the projects Brabant InCar III and Spookfiles A58, ZOOF carries out tests for the government on the A67 and A58 that focus on improving traffic flow.
You can participate in these tests! ZOOF can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and Apple AppStore. Register via the app, start the route and score ZOOFies! More information about this project can be found on the ZOOF website.
