RDW is a public authority in the mobility chain. RDW has developed extensive expertise through its years of experience in executing its statutory and assigned tasks. Tasks in the area of the licensing of vehicles and vehicle parts, supervision and enforcement, registration, information provision and issuing documents. Tasks that RDW carries out in close cooperation with various partners in the mobility chain. This provides RDW with a clear position in this chain, with its mission being: RDW, partner in mobility.
RDW wants to be supportive in this situation and jointly indicate questions and options in the field of ITS. The goal of using ITS is enhancing driving comfort and safety as well as managing traffic flows. On a temporary basis, vehicle manufacturers, research institutes, research universities and universities of applied sciences can gain practical experience on public roads using intelligent transport systems. In the future, this might lead to self-driving vehicles that can partly or completely take over the driving task of the driver.
