The realisation of autonomous mobility solutions requires a wide array of technological, legislative and infrastructure developments. The Dutch government is highly committed to facilitating developments in the field of autonomous mobility and was one of the first countries to allow autonomous vehicles on public roads. Several institutes, related to the TU Delft are developing technology for autonomous mobility:
With its extensive expertise in fields such as sensors, robotics and nanotechnology, greater Rotterdam – The Hague holds a key position in the Dutch mobility ecosystem. With Eindhoven’s significant vehicle manufacturing community and Amsterdam’s strength in routing technology, the many aspects of future mobility are within a 100 km radius from our region.
Researchlab Automated Driving Delft is a research institute with multiple test locations and offers room for experiments with automatic transport in real-life situations.
Our region is renowned for our maritime expertise and excellent port infrastructure. In order to maintain our position at the forefront of the world’s trade and logistics rankings, the community is focused on digitisation and becomming more sustainable.
The Hague Security Delta, with ties to our national government, military and intelligence agencies as well as international organisations, provides access to markets, innovation, talent, knowledge and capital.
Our region is recognized for its innovative capabilities in digital technology and has a strong track record developing world-class technology businesses. The leading sectors in the region are adopting the latest cutting-edge technologies at a fast pace.
The presence of a large industrial cluster, world-leading logistics, the availability of feedstock, testing facilities and an extensive knowledge base in our region make a perfect mix that acts like a trampoline for biotech companies developing and growing their businesses.
