In PPA Zuidoost (southeast) the emphasis is on strengthening and improving individual recommendations (in-car) by using information that can be acquired and processed with roadside systems (developed in PPA and elsewhere). At the same time, the existing traffic control scenarios are used more dynamically and efficiently by using the in-car data. The biggest challenge here lies in the events traffic in Amsterdam Southeast, in relation to other target groups in this area. PPA Zuidoost thus tests mainly the added value of roadside/in-car integration for in-car services. PPA Zuidoost can also contribute to a transition from less roadside and more in-car.
