    Speed assistance systems have a strong potential to contribute to solving road traffic problems regarding congestion, energy consumption and safety. However, most speed assistance systems are not yet commercially available, and when they are, large-scale deployment takes a long period of time due to problems, with respect to technology development, user demand, legal issues and market organization. These problems were analyzed by means of scenario analysis and the construction and application of a scenario model. Four scenarios were considered varying in the level of demand for speed assistance and the level of market organization. The analysis and the scenarios indicated that the deployment of speed assistance systems can lead to penetration rates of up to 50 percent in 2025 in case of high market demand and strong market organization. Cooperation among stakeholders is therefore the first and most important step towards a new traffic situation, which is smarter, safer and cleaner than that of today.
