Thinking further forward and out of the box

Prof.dr. Henk Nijmeijer, Automotive Technology, professor

"We are working full out on cooperative mobility and intelligent transport systems but we have to look even further ahead. In the Netherlands billions of euros are spent on asphalt and maintenance of asphalt.Why don’t we have rubber roads? They cause much less noise pollution. Why are tyres so wide? Maybe electric vehicles with bicycle tires on a polymer road surface would work much better. Think out-of-the-box and incorporate every aspect.”
