    This paper presents a vision on cooperative mobility systems from a human factors perspective. To create a common ground for future developments, it’s important to define the common research themes and knowledge gaps. This article presents what steps need to be taken in order to come to proper ex-ante evaluations of cooperative systems. Since the actual effect of these systems on traffic flow, safety and air quality will not only depend on the technological potential of these systems but largely on the actual behavioural effects of using these systems, the Human Factor is crucial in the design and evaluation. This article can make researchers and designers aware of the potential as well as the behavioural pitfalls when designing cooperative systems. By working together with industry, government and knowledge partners, the Dutch Integrated Testsite for Cooperative Mobility and exchanging data and evaluations, cooperative mobility can be taken to the next level.
