Welcome to TAVF,
the test track for automated and
connected driving in Hamburg

Hamburg explores the mobility of the future

A test track several kilometers long for automated and connected driving has been set up in the city of Hamburg. Since 2018, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg has been upgrading traffic lights for infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication. Vehicle manufacturers, technology companies and research institutions will be able to test innovative mobility services, such as automated driving functions or safety assistance systems, in real traffic on public roads. The development and operation of the test track is supported by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).

ITS World Congress 2021 in Hamburg: T-Systems presents the Traffic Light Assistant

When traffic lights give drivers speed recommendations and the driver follows them, this reduces fuel consumption. This is demonstrated by systems such as the Green Light Optimised Speed Advisory (GLOSA). How this can work was tested as part of the "Real Lab Hamburg" projects. The focus of the project was not only on passenger cars but also on cyclists and e-scooter drivers.
