Self-driving technology is new and in full evolution. There are only few organizations in Belgium that have a lot of experience with autonomous shuttles. Thanks to the experience in the various pilot projects that were set up in Belgium, Vias had an important advisory role from the outset and proved to be the ideal, objective partner to discuss the state of affairs and differences in technology, feasibility of the project and points for attention. In addition, Vias has also facilitated contacts with the competent authorities so that the project could also be tested in accordance with the legal framework.

Thanks to Vias' excellent knowledge of mobility problems, we have been able to test a number of working hypotheses in order to better serve our customers. Vias methodological expertise allowed us to gain efficiency in collecting and interpreting the results In 2020 we have conducted a survey among Belgian car drivers to help Q8 understand current mobility behavior and to know their opinions and intentions for their future mobility

We wanted to analyze the possibilities of adapting an existing road infrastructure to make it perfectly safe to use by trucks with bulk loadings. The road investigated in this project goes through woods with a presence of sharp bends as well as streteches with a marked slope. We chose to work with Vias because it is an independent organization and its competence in the field essential to our project is recognized. The mission that we entrusted to Vias was to analyze in all objectivity whether the road we wanted to use for the passage of our trucks could or not be adapted to the traffic we were considering. We asked also for recommendations on the adjustments that should be made if necessary. The mission was carried out in accordance with our expectations and allowed us to this day to study in detail the arrangements that have been proposed. We recommend working with Vias for road projects on which it is necessary to have professional, independent and objective advice

The partnership with Vias is strategic for Lime in order to develop our micro-mobility service in a safe way for our customers. The scooter riding training sessions and the many tips from Vias have helped our users understand the safety rules when riding a scooter. In addition, with the help of Vias, we have been able to identify the areas most at risk for users in order to propose solutions to the Region.

Vias has been a great support for us at Voi. They have been truly helpful in our creation of the world's first and most comprehensive traffic school for e-scooter riders - Ride Like Voila. More than 500,000 have taken the test so far and Vias has helped us make sure that all questions are correct according to local laws and regulations.
The e-learning solution offered by Vias is an easy and efficient way to refresh the knowledge of road safety. As little as 15min. allows to improve safety not only of your own but also other road users. Every module is insightful – even if you perceive yourself as a good driver already. The solution has the strengths of being fun thanks to many animations as well as interactive thanks to the forum. We recommend it!
Shortly before the Mobility Week, we wanted to offer its employees a webinar on road safety. We went to the Vias which demonstrated professionalism and efficiency. The team we worked with was always attentive and the presentations (trilingual) were prepared, adjusted and presented to perfection. The advantage of the VIAS Institute? Each speaker mastered his subject and was able to answer all of our employees' questions. This is why, during the Mobility Week, we organized together a second webinar about electric scooters: a second success! It is with great pleasure that we will call on the teams of the VIAS Institute for our next activities, in person this time, we hope.

In the context of a project carried out jointly by Brussels Airport Company and De Lijn to test an autonomous shuttle at Brussels Airport, Vias performed a traffic analysis of a critical roundabout along the intended shuttle route in the BruCargo area. Incoming vehicles and their speed were measured during a continuous period of two weeks. On top, two cameras filmed the roundabout during pre-defined peak-periods. Major traffic flows, critical points of congestion and safety risks were identified based on behavior analysis. This information is very useful for the preparation of the tests and forms a basis for comparison and assessment of the traffic impact of the shuttle during the tests. We enjoy a very professional collaboration with Vias and can count on their valuable support and advice throughout this project.
