Visit French delegation from Cerema

On October 5th and 6th 2016, a delegation from Cerema (‘Centre d’études et d’expertise sur les risques, l’environnement, la mobilité et l’amenagement’, a French public resource centre for scientific and technical expertise), visited the Netherlands to learn about the traffic management systems in place in the Netherlands, and the innovative measures that are being tested. The two days of the visit were filled with presentations and discussions at TrafficQuest (to what extent are the approaches similar in the Netherlands and France, and where do the approaches differ?) and experiencing current traffic management and innovative measures on the road and in the traffic management centres in Rhoon and Helmond. Besides experiencing automated incident detection, variable speed limits, and peak hour, bus and truck lanes, we also tested the shockwave damping apps on the A58 and an automated vehicle that was following a virtual predecessor.

The presentations given during this visit can be viewed or downloaded.
