Smart Mobility Schiphol

In the area of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol province Noord-Holland wants to develop and test in real life environment communication between automated cars, traffic lights and other infrastructure. We do this together with OEM's , knowledge institutes and serviceproviders. Financing is done together. Our working relationship is based on innovative partnerships and MOU’s, so no traditional vendor- supplier contracts are applicable. Every party is responsible for its own development, innovative goals and budget. Up till now we cooperated with different OEM’s, like Nissan and Daimler Bus, different providers (traffic light providers, telecomproviders) and knowledge institutes (TU Delft).

Our goal as a road authority is to gain knowledge on the influence of automated cars on subjects like safety, traffic flow and  sustainability.

The area of Schiphol is chosen because of the following facts:

  1. Here we have highly intelligent traffic lights, which generate open data, are linked to our traffic control centre and are able to communicate with cars,
  2. Here we have all modalities available, so we can find out immediately what the effect is on different traffic flows.
  3. Here we have high logistical and economic interests of an efficient traffic system .

Best Practices

Test with Daimler and Vialis with an autonomous driving (level 3) future bus of Daimler on a bus rapid transit route between Schiphol and Haarlem. Focus was on automatic stops at bus stops, passing tunnels and traffic lights on the track. Lessons were learned on positioning, self learning, interaction with traffic lights and the use of standards like MAP, SPAT, ETSI G5.

Test on traffic light priority and GLOSA with KPN, Vialis, Dynniq, Rietveld, Dobbe and Flora Holland via the 4G LTE network. Trucks of DobbeTransport communicate through the 4G LTE network of KPN with the cloud of Vialis and the traffic lights of the province Noord-Holland. GLOSA and green light priority where tested in a real life environment on the N201 near the A4.

Results where insights in latency in the 4G LTE network, the technical implications of the chain between traffic light àtraffic management center àcloudservices and the truck. The number of truck stops and impact on other traffic.
