Corridor A16 from Rotterdam to Breda

The C-ITS project was launched in 2015 to develop cooperative ITS services in cooperation with Germany and Austria, that contribute to smart, safe and sustainable transport. In short : Smart Mobility solutions. These will materialise on the so-called corridor, a route that starts in Rotterdam and leads via Frankfurt to Vienna. The Dutch part runs on the A16 near Rotterdam to Breda and then via Tilburg and Eindhoven to Venlo, via the A58, A2 and A67. Not only the content of the project is unique, but also the form of cooperation is special. After all, public and market parties are involved in the C-ITS project. Rijkswaterstaat is involved in the Dutch part of the project. Compass and Swarco have taken the roadside section together.They have placed beacons along the A16 that send information to the passing vehicles (the Road Side Units). V-tron has ensured that this information can be received on the one hand by vehicles (via On Board Units) and on the other hand by drivers (via a Human Machine Interface).

The parties involved have experienced the public-private partnership as positive. ‘The essence of this entire C-ITS project is: Alone you go faster, but together you go further’, says project manager Abraham Bot of Rijkswaterstaat. 'Neither Rijkswaterstaat, V-tron, Swarco nor Compass could have carried out this project alone. Every organisation has its own expertise. At the start of this project, we carefully selected the parties for this, because we do not have all that knowledge in-house at Rijkswaterstaat. Through sister projects, we came across relatively small, agile organisations that also dare to take risks. We have really enjoyed that’.

Onze werkwijze

The world of traffic systems is full of innovation

The role of Compass is that of systems integrator; we bring the right parties from within our business network together.

Project for Rijkswaterstaat

The Cooperative ITS Corridor (C-ITS) project, in which the Netherlands cooperates with Germany and Austria to develop cooperative ITS services, is the next step. All kinds of Smart Mobility solutions will materialise on a route that starts in Rotterdam and leads to Vienna. An example is the Road Side Units that we have developed and installed along the A16. These are beacons that pass on traffic information to passing vehicles. We are all on our way to a future that is characterised by self-driving and decisive cars that communicate with each other. But also a future with an evermore congestion of our main roads and motorways. It will be our biggest challenge to prevent the latter from happening..

Smart Mobility

Compass looks through the issues of the day to tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. What is the future of Smart Mobility? And from our expertise in the design and implementation of various (dynamic) traffic systems, we look at our own future role. What all ITS parties are currently working on is only a prelude to a dynamic future. But what does the long term look like? Currently, the systems are still relatively static in terms of technology. The systems now tell the motorist where they can drive 50, 70 or 90 and show a red cross above the road.

The Cooperative ITS Corridor (C-ITS) project, in which the Netherlands cooperates with Germany and Austria to develop cooperative ITS services, is the next step. All kinds of Smart Mobility solutions are given a place on a route that starts in Rotterdam and leads to Vienna. An example is the Road Side Units that we have developed and installed along the A16. These are beacons that pass on traffic information to passing vehicles. We are all on our way to a future that is characterised by self-driving and decisive cars that communicate with each other. But also a future with even more silting roads. It will be the big challenge to prevent the latter.
