The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, local governments and the traffic industry, telecommunications and internet companies, and automotive companies have joined forces to develop and supply innovative traffic applications in the next five years. The applications provide continuous en-route guidance and assistance to road users, and in the near future also to vehicles. This increases their ability to anticipate traffic situations, which in turn improves traffic flow and road safety. By using modern telecommunications and cloud technologies in combination with information crowdsourcing, new services will be able to offer driving task support as well as navigation in the entire country and in cities.
