From electric buses to flying cars: Brabant is a leader in smart and sustainable mobility. Find out more about the increasing intelligence in vehicles and the environment.
We travel thousands of kilometres a year in our densely populated country. Keeping traffic environmentally friendly, maintaining a smooth flow and avoiding accidents are huge challenges. But we can rely on the booming high tech industry in Brabant to come up with brilliant solutions. To be precise, Brabant is a leader in smart and sustainable mobility. Not only are we making vehicles smarter with advanced software, the environment also communicates with them.
Technology is developing at an unstoppable pace. Self-driving cars that exchange information with other vehicles make driving safer. Intelligent traffic lights that rapidly anticipate traffic movements ensure a smoother flow of vehicles. Up-to-date traffic information and bespoke alternative routes improve accessibility. And electric vehicles make the world so much cleaner. Rechargeable batteries are becoming more powerful and the associated charging technology is getting faster and more intelligent. The Smartwayz programme offers high tech companies with innovative ideas attractive opportunities for making mobility smarter and more sustainable. That policy spurs entrepreneurs on and concentrates the mind. So surprising initiatives from Brabant are coming to market in quick succession.
The areas of application of smart and green mobility are virtually endless. One thing is certain though: our mobility will become increasingly efficient, safer and cleaner as time passes. An exciting development that is changing our living environment at lightning speed. With Brabant in a proud pioneering role.
