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.

Faster, safer and cleaner traffic – but how to make it profitable?

Mobility in the European Union must be efficient, safe and green, but how do you achieve this and earn money at the same time? ‘Business modelling has been the “hot potato” of SOCRATES2.0 since the start of the project, but we are starting to make progress with this now, says Jan Maarten van den Berg, business manager SOCRATES2.0 at the Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat).
