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 is being built in the city of Hamburg. The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is upgrading traffic light systems for the infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication (V2I). 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).
