Intelligent co-operative road-vehicle systems, in which intelligent road-side equipment co-operates with intelligent vehicles, have great potential to improve traffic flow safety, efficiency, reliability and quality of the environment. But what concepts for these systems are both realistic and beneficial? This paper presents the objectives, approach and first results of TNOs R&D program SUMMITS (SUstainable Mobility Methodologies using Intelligent Transport Systems), set up to deal with these issues. This paper will focus on the comprehensive set of integrated tools for the design and evaluation of intelligent road-vehicle systems that is being developed within SUMMITS.
