Mobility and transport are crucial for a city to function properly. Amsterdam is considered the world capital of cycling; 32% of traffic movement in Amsterdam is by bike and 63% of its inhabitants use their bike on daily basis. The number of registered electrical car owners in the Netherlands increased with 53% to 28.889 in 2016. Since 2008 car sharing increased with 376%. However, this is less than 1% of the total car use. Innovative ideas and concepts can help to improve the city’s accessibility, so share your ideas and concepts here.

Zelfrijdende voertuigen nemen centrale rol in Singapore’s ‘car-lite’ toekomst

Kansen voor Nederlandse oplossingen
De meeste kansen liggen in samenwerken op wet- en regelgeving, big data analyse en sensortechnologie. Uitwisseling tussen Singaporese initiatieven en Nederlandse proeftuinprojecten, gezamenlijk onderzoek met TNO, TU Delft en TU Eindhoven en samen innoveren met Nederlandse bedrijven ligt voor de hand. De Singaporese haven is net als de haven van Rotterdam platooning van vrachtwagens aan het testen. Een route van tien kilometer is voor deze proef voor efficient goederenvervoer gereserveerd. De huidige prototype demonstraties van zelfrijdende voertuigen op de drie testlokaties zullen in 2018 opgevolgd worden door operationele pilots. Vanaf 2020 zullen zelfrijdende voertuigen een volwaardige mobiliteitsoplossing zijn. In elke fase kunnen Nederlandse bedrijven hun oplossing aanbieden en onderzoekers een samenwerking zoeken met Singaporese bedrijven. De innovatie adviseurs van de Nederlandse ambassade helpen graag met het identificeren van partners.
