The Netherlands is a small, densely populated country with a complex road network, making it the ideal place to test and implement innovative mobility concepts. A unique collaboration between companies, research institutes and governments give the Dutch a running start when it comes to developing and quickly implementing Smart Mobility solutions. Since 2011, more than twenty partners have joined forces to create the open innovation organization Dutch Integrated Cooperative Mobility Test Site (DITCM) together with the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment as ‘launching customer’. The cooperating partners share both their knowledge and a broad range of test facilities. The unique collaboration demonstrated by DITCM has given the Netherlands a head start in ITS. In addition to improved mobility, the innovations also reduce fuel consumption and increase road-traffic safety. The innovative and competitive solutions contribute to solving the mobility problems plaguing countries around the world.
