is to provide technology for a smart road in the Netherlands which is expected to provide more energy than it consumes.
The company’s new FlowSense architecture will provide signal priority at 11 intersections of the N470 – innovative road to help improve travel times. FlowSense is an open platform for agile governance of smart mobility services by cities and road authorities. It connects roadside infrastructure and road users in the cloud.
Haye Mensonides, commercial director mobility at Dynniq, says the intersections recognise the cars and provide a ‘green flow’ of traffic to help alleviate congestion, improve safety and reduce the amount of accidents.
“The initiative will help pass policies around carbon dioxide emissions and living in the city,” Mensonides adds.
The 15km road will host solar-powered traffic lights and lights on the surface of the road.
Other products and services will include a DC-microgrid, energy wall with integrated solar panels, DC-powered energy neutral smart public lighting system, traffic emissions monitoring and an energy-reducing traffic control system.
The project stems from an agreement with Boskalis, which will provide the roads and infrastructure support. It will commence in the fourth quarter of 2018.
