Significant steps made in definition of Shared Vision
BERGISCH GLADBACH, 10 & 11 January 2018 – The SOCRATES2.0 partners for Activity 2 (Cooperation framework) have jointly made a significant step within the project by defining the Shared Vision. This Shared Vision is the basis within SOCRATES2.0 to assess the use-cases, pilots and possibilities to work together, and is the underlying basis for creating shared value. During the two day workshop 23 participants actively contributed to defining the Shared Vision.
SOCRATES2.0 aims at realising services for interactive traffic management in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Antwerp and Munich and at assessing ways to work together to create mutual benefits.

The SOCRATES pilot in Amsterdam was launched today, with a new navigation service to improve the traffic flow around Amsterdam. In the event of imminent traffic jams, drivers will be offered an alternative route in time via the navigation system. Thus, the traffic will be better spread over the total road network, resulting in fewer traffic jams. The services are offered by TomTom, Be-Mobile (Flitsmeister) and BrandMKRS (Livecrowd Mobility). The service providers are looking for testers of the services.
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.
