The next step in ITS: ITS Agency ready for action!

In a captivating talk show on Monday 18 April 2016 guests interested in innovative mobility were introduced to the next step of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). During the talk show enthusiastic players in the field of ITS talked about the reason we work on innovative mobility solutions, how we deal with complex projects, such as Shockwave traffic jams (Spookfiles A58) and looked into the future: what can be improved and what do we need for deployment?

ITS-1

This day was also the official start of the ITS Agency. The authorities of the BrabantStad steering group conceptualized the ITS Agency to intensify the collaboration in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and traffic management. Most employees of the ITS Agency work half-time for their own organization and half-time for the ITS Agency.


The Automotive Campus in Helmond is the center of innovative mobility. That’s why it became the home base of the ITS Agency.

Collaboration is the key

The ITS Agency is part of a larger movement to connect the smartest highway to the smartest cities (Better Accessible South-Netherlands). The roads in Brabant are the perfect environment to test different ITS technology with road users in daily traffic and as a result develop ITS products and services. The ITS Agency is aware of what’s going on in the field of ITS in Brabant and collaboration is the key to accelerate deployment and execution of ITS and traffic management. Working together with the users community, market parties, knowledge institutions and authorities brings about knowledge and innovation. The acquired knowledge will be smartly used to copy from one city to another. What works well in Brabant, will also be suitable for other cities and roads in the Netherlands and Europe!

The ITS Agency BrabantStad is situated on the Automotive Campus in Helmond, next to the Traffic Innovation Centre.
