Brainport Eindhoven has great ambitions in terms of mobility. The ultimate goal: zero emissions, traffic jams and deaths. This requires not only smart technology solutions, but a transition of a complete infrastructure and industry. There is a widespread need for sustainable, emission-free, smart and safe technological mobility solutions: electrically powered vehicles and associated infrastructure, hydrogen as energy carrier and smart, autonomous and connected vehicles and digital networks and systems. With its many, closely cooperating, innovative companies, IT businesses and knowledge and educational institutes that focus on mobility, Brainport holds an excellent position. Add the Automotive Campus and a government that is supporting mobility pilots in public spaces or is acting as launching customer, and the world is at our feet.
Three large consortia of more than 60 Dutch companies in the mobility sector, together with the government, are investing over 120 million euros to realise innovative technological breakthroughs in electrification, hydrogen applications and future-oriented digital infrastructure in mobility. The three consortia form the basis of the multi-year programmatic implementation of the HTSM Automotive roadmap.
