Abstract

Despite large suspicion from road authorities in the beginning of the large-scale use of navigation systems, independent research has shown that the use of navigation systems leads to safer, more comfortable and less pollutant traffic. And there's more to come. The positive role of navigation systems in traffic management will even be even bigger now a new generation of connected navigation systems starts connecting drivers with each other. This paper will highlight the current and future potential of navigation technology for efficient and effective traffic management, based on research and the results of recent Field Operational Trials. Connected navigation technology is already starting to show the huge potential of ITS in everyday life and the added value for smarter mobility is expected to grow exponentially. The shift from a traffic center being in the lead of managing traffic, towards well-informed individuals taking the lead will have big implications on the future of traffic management. But it will for sure change for the better.
