Mobility

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.

How could we help old age 2.0?

Dear All, my name is Daniele, I’m 34 and I’m anelectrical engineer. Actually I’m working in Italy in operations department of an international company, and a part of my job is to find if there are any“lack” in each kind of operations process, analyse them and modify the workflow in order to optimize and to improve the process too. With my friend Davide (he is working inUK, different company but same department), every week we try to find an intelligence solution to improve human life, something to help our daily life,something for livability of oldages. Related to this continuous input wethought an idea for a “smart city”, but unfortunately we have only the idea(even if we would like to develop it).

Dear All,

my name is Daniele, I’m 34 and I’m anelectrical engineer. Actually I’m working in Italy in operations department of an international company, and a part of my job is to find if there are any“lack” in each kind of operations process, analyse them and modify the workflow in order to optimize and to improve the process too.

With my friend Davide (he is working inUK, different company but same department), every week we try to find an intelligence solution to improve human life, something to help our daily life,something for livability of oldages. Related to this continuous input wethought an idea for a “smart city”, but unfortunately we have only the idea(even if we would like to develop it).

We thought to old ages 2.0.In 2020 there’ll be old ages capable to use smartphone and tablet, and me andmy friend Davide have thought to develop an APP for future old ages. The ideais very simple, and it will create an helpful network between two generations. The main purpose is to connect old ages with youngers (geo-localized) in order to ask them to buy something, or to pay invoices, or carry out little but daily commissions. We would like to create an APP to link the old ages, that couldn’t go out for several reasons, and youngers, the most closely youngers available. The payment will be anticipate by younger, and after the feedback (everythingis into the bag, for example), the old age unlock the reimbursement.

We would like to explain better our idea, and obviously we would like to become partner of this project. We would like to create a Start-Up related to this topic!

Best Regards

Daniele Sani
