Smart & Safe navigation

April 16 - April 19

We, Navco International, will demonstrate Smart routing and navigation for trucks, pedestrians, two-wheelers and cars. The system increases safety by adding ISA, Optimal EV planning and endless navigation configurations.

The goal of the NovaFast Student team is to make zero emission mobility possible. Their vehicle is a showcase to the industry of what is possible.  The development of the vehicle will result in new innovations and solutions for a sustainable future in mobility.


Dream Waves will demonstrate the use of the audio navigation app for pedestrians and for bike riders. The demonstration will consist of you as a participant selecting one of a few optional paths, putting on open headphones (so you can hear traffic around them safely), and navigating without having to look at the screen. You will experience navigation using spatial sound only (i.e. using audio but without any turn-by-turn description). You will be able to feel how much safer it is to use a navigation app that allows you to focus visual attention on the road and not on a screen.

The current problems with research in Antarctica are that the infrastructure is not sustainable, unsafe, limited in range, and extremely expensive. All of these factors contribute such that research is not fully optimized in Antarctica. This is the underlying problem: that we do not know enough about Antarctica and that the current infrastructure cannot provide significant new opportunities for research predicting climate change and understanding our planet.

By making a sustainable and autonomous rover, student team Polar aims to ensure that research is not dependent on fossil fuels or direct human involvement, that it is safer and more affordable, which will eventually lead towards more opportunities for research in Antarctica. Polar’s solution is unique because such an autonomous electric vehicle has never been built for Antarctic usage, and there is currently no competitor in this field. As such, you could essentially compare it to a Mars rover.


Join ADASTEC to experience the future of transportation with our ‘’SAE Level-4 Autonomous Driving Software Platform’’. Our Automated Public Transport Bus will be in action, offering a closed test area ride to showcase its advanced technology and safety features to Automotive Week attendees.

ADASTEC’s Level-4 Autonomous Driving Software System will help to solve transportation problems by reducing driver costs, increasing road safety and efficiency, providing comfortable and sustainable travel to passengers, and optimizing battery life and energy consumption. This solution is environmentally friendly and has the potential to greatly enhance the transportation industry.

The vehicle uses AI-based reasoning to plan its future trajectory based on the desired behaviour in its current context and the risk of its actions. This ‘situation awareness’ allows the vehicle to demonstrate safe behaviour in complex situations in automated driving. Decision making is one of the most challenging tasks for an automated vehicle. State-of-the-art solutions are either provably safe but unable to scale up to complex situations, or difficult to assess in terms of safety but handling complex situations well. The Hybrid-AI approach in this demonstrator is able to traverse complex situations while at the same time explicitly taking into account the risks involved in the actions of the vehicle.

In the demonstrator, a factory default vehicle, retrofitted with automated driving hard- and software, will be autonomously driving in its lane. At some point, the lane will be blocked by an obstacle. The vehicle will have to decide whether it is safe to plan and execute a trajectory around the obstacle, or wait behind it.

5G Blueprint Demonstration

April 16 - April 19

The final tests for teleoperation using 5G SA and NSA in the framework of the 5G-Blueprint Project have now been completed. The teleoperation solution offers multiple solutions within the logistics chain to reduce the idle time of drivers/operators, such as 1) the possibility of a multi-operator setup, and 2) increased worker mobility. Teleoperation allows a single operator to switch between different vehicles remotely using a single station. The savings in costs, time, damages, etc. can be enormous, while also providing a positive boost to the human capital agenda. On a medium-sized distribution site (~6000 transport movements per year), a savings of a full man-year is very possible. Our demo demonstrates both teleoperation and autonomous docking.

April 16 - April 19

The SolarOnTop saves around 2.000 liters of fuel per year, that’s almost 7 tonnes of CO2!

IM Efficiency is a technology scale-up from the Netherlands and we’re making trucks sustainable. Instead of only focusing on the truck itself, we use renewable energy sources in the trailer. We believe that the trailer is the key to creating fully sustainable transportation that is reliable and affordable. Our first product is SolarOnTop: a plug&play upgrade for trucks and trailers to reduce diesel fuel consumption with onboard solar energy. Flexible solar modules on top of the trailer generate electricity, a technology that is durable, light weight, and ultra-thin. An intelligent energy management system decides what to do with the solar energy to have the biggest impact: it can be stored in the SolarOnTop lithium battery for later use, or supplied directly to the truck and trailer to save fuel. At IM Efficiency, we turn trucks into mobile solar parks. That’s why we say: we make trucks love the sun.

Bicycle Platoon Module

April 16 - April 19

Together with SmartwayZ.NL, DTV Consultants developed the Bicycle Platoon Module (BPM). This module allows groups (or platoons) of cyclists to be detected and prioritized by smart traffic lights. The module predicts if cyclists will form a platoon using the speed of each of the individual cyclists.

DTV Consultants will host both virtual as physical demonstrations to show the working of the BPM. You can visit our stand or, if you wish to experience it yourself, sign up for one of the physical demonstrations in which we cycle to a nearby intersection and explain the working of the BPM!
