Smart mobility and transport digitalization. That's what the annual Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) event is all about. This year's event will be taking place in Hamburg, Germany, from the 11th until the 15th of October and will be attended by several of our consultants to discuss themes such as smart mobility and the importance of data with other professionals.

Examples of our smart mobility experience
Among other things, smart mobility means making smarter use of current road capacity. We've developed the OmniTRANS Realtime transport modelling platform for the purpose of continually improving traffic flow and accessibility. Because it uses real-time data, smart traffic control systems, and floating car data, OmniTRANS Realtime can provide forecasts up to one hour ahead, allowing traffic management to be proactive rather than reactive.
At Goudappel, we work on a range of smart mobility initiatives every day. The key question, though, is how smart mobility will impact local communities. To deliver that information, we've developed a methodology for the North Holland provincial authorities to gauge the impact of smart mobility measures. It's a first for the Netherlands.
The number of pilots with self-propelled shuttles in the Netherlands has increased significantly over the past years and this growth is expected to continue in the coming years. But what did we learn from all these pilots? That's why the Ministry of Infrastructure & Water Management asked us to bundle all lessons learned with regard to self-propelled shuttles in the Netherlands and to translate them into decision information from a government perspective.
Determing the E-bike factor
During the covid pandemic, the number of E-bikes sold has grown. Not only is an E-bike a fun and healthy way of transportation, it's also an alternative for public transport. But you can't use your E-bike the same way in every city. Some places are too far away to reach on bike, even with an E-bike. To figure out which places can be reached with an E-bike, we determined the E-bike factor for all places in the Netherlands.
