In Amsterdam a three-month experiment will shortly take place to test a first station at the Amsterveld with seven so-called whitecars. These cars are to be considered as small self-drive electric hire cabs for use in the city. Their users, driving from one station to another, are always sure to find a parking-place at the station of destination, which is reserved through a processor. In the first stage of the project, starting after the experiment, five stations and 35 cars are planned. Ultimately the network might comprise 150 stations in Amsterdam. This article contains a description of the whitecar-system. /Author/
