What is TrafficQuest?
TrafficQuest is a cooperation between Rijkswaterstaat Water, Traffic & Environment, TNO and Delft University of Technology. TrafficQuest was initiated because there was a growing need to bundle and disseminate knowledge about traffic management and information, so that future projects, field trials and research can benefit from it. A lot is going on in the field of traffic management; the three organisations work together in TrafficQuest to ensure that the existing knowledge does not get lost and is made accessible to practitioners. Also, new research topics are defined.
To be a platform of experts in the field of traffic management to bring together knowledge from science, applied science and operations. This is important for a good and sustainable cooperation between the organisations involved.
