Paving the way for the future of car mobility

SOCRATES2.0 is a pan-European project that brings together road authorities, service providers and car manufacturers. Together they set new standards to share and integrate traffic information. This enables effective traffic management and opens the door to innovative traffic information and navigation services. It will make traffic smoother, safer and more sustainable. Hence our pay-off: fast, safe and green. SOCRATES2.0 also provides the essential building blocks to prepare Europe for the future of self-driving cars.

Test with smart traffic flows on the Antwerp ring road

In the coming months, the Flemish Traffic Control Centre (part of the Agency for Roads and Traffic), BMW Group, Be-Mobile and MAPtm will be testing a new ‘smart tunnel service’ on the Antwerp ring road. This will help them assess whether they can distribute traffic in a dynamic and clever way between the Kennedy and Liefkenshoek tunnels, in order to reduce traffic jams near the Kennedy Tunnel.
