The City of Hamburg is project partner in the EIT project CELESTE

Since 1 April 2021, Hamburg has been a project partner in the EIT project CELESTE - dynamiC spEed Limits compliancE for optimiSed Traffic management. The project aims to test a dynamic speed limit and its enforcement in cities in order to generate added value for traffic management.

 

The CELESTE project, coordinated by CTAG - Centro Tecnológico de Automoción de Galicia and funded by the EIT Urban Mobility, was started in a virtual kick-off meeting on 29 April 2021. The consortium consisting of twelve partners will analyse the current synergies between dynamic speed limits and intelligent speed assistance (ISA) systems, define solutions for the entire traffic management value chain and implement them in functional prototypes in the pilot…

News from TAVF: Filming has taken place on the TAVF

In preparation for the ITS World Congress 2021 in Hamburg, students from the University of Hamburg filmed a short report on the TAVF test track for the social media channels of ITS Young Mobility. The report focused on automated and connected driving as well as the protection of especially vulnerable road users (pedestrians, cyclists, etc.) on the TAVF route through Hamburg's city centre. In an interview, the operator of the test track and the technical partner were asked about the state of progress and the potential for the future. In a test drive with the TAVF user T-Systems, the young team of journalists from the University of Hamburg was able to experience the technology at first hand. First impressions of the shoot can be seen in the…

New TAVF user consider it develops own aftermarket solutions for V2X installations

Since June, the TAVF test track for automated and connected driving in Hamburg welcomes consider it as a new TAVF user. With 10 years of project experience, consider it drives market change through innovation. On the TAVF track, consider it is active with various initiatives. These include the development of a V2X system to extract data from the Urban Data Platform (UDP), the TAVF using ITS-G5 communication and C-V2X, and display it in an application. The system will serve as a V2X aftermarket solution for existing vehicles and bicycles. With the development of the application, digital services will be made available to the citizens of the city of Hamburg.

Invitation to the Plugtest for On-Board Units in the BiDiMoVe Test Field Hamburg

In the Hamburg project BiDiMoVe, the public transport priority at traffic lights will be tested by using ITS-G5 central-based via SREM and SSEM. For this purpose, a test field of approx. 9 traffic lights with ITS technology is being set up (along bus route 26). The BiDiMoVe project would like to make this available to manufacturers of On-Board Units (OBU) and invite them to a Plugtest in calendar week (23.-27.08.21).

 

What is being tested?

The OBU shall request the priority at the traffic light by continuously sending SREMs. If there is a match (PKI, contents of the SREM, etc.), the BiDiMoVe system will confirm the request via SSEM and, if necessary, prioritise the OBU/vehicle. Ideally, the OBU should issue this confirmation…

New users on the TAVF: T-Systems and BMW Group carry out test activities as part of the National Platform Mobility RealLabHH

The TAVF test track for automated and connected driving in Hamburg welcomes T-Systems and the BMW Group as new users. Both users are active in subgroup seven "Connected Vulnerable Roads Users" as part of the national platform Mobility in the Reallabor Hamburg. The TAVF test track for automated and connected driving is part of the Reallabor for testing various use cases. Both T-Systems and the BMW Group are testing various selected elements of the TAVF road infrastructure. T-Systems is developing the GLOSA (Green Light Optimum Speed Advice) service with the aim of providing car, bicycle and e-scooter drivers with a "traffic light assistant". For this purpose, the data of the traffic lights are used by the TAVF. The messages are sent to…

New user on the test track: VITRONIC has successfully installed hardware on the TAVF

VITRONIC Dr.-Ing. Stein Bildverarbeitungssysteme GmbH has successfully installed hardware at the Hamburg test track TAVF. The purpose of this test installation is to contribute to optimising traffic flow and increasing road safety for particularly vulnerable road users (including pedestrians and cyclists) at the K94 junction.

 

A video camera in a suitable housing was installed on an existing light mast in Schröderstiftstraße to record the flowing traffic from Schröderstiftstraße in the direction of the K94 junction (Rentzelstraße / Schröderstiftstraße / An der Verbindungsbahn). The light mast is located approx. 180m from the K94 junction. A second camera was integrated into a column installed directly at the K94 junction. Both cameras…

The TAVF and HEAT test tracks are linked up

Since the beginning of the year, in addition to the cooperative vehicles and the traffic signals, the inner-city test track for automated and connected driving (TAVF) and the circuit in HafenCity of the Hamburg Electric Autonomous Transportation (HEAT) research and development project have been connected. By equipping the Mahatma Gandhi Bridge, a bascule bridge in HafenCity, with Roadside ITS Stations (R-ITS-S), the link between the two test sites was completed. For more than two years, both test tracks have been successfully built and operated. In the process, the technical upgrading is constantly being further developed. The two test tracks TAVF and HEAT are together over twelve kilometres long. Starting on the TAVF in Hamburg's city…

C-Roads Workshop on the Probe Vehicle Data Service

As operators of the Test Field for Automated and Connected Driving in Hamburg (TAVF-HH), the Agency for Roads, Bridges and Waterways (Landesbetrieb Straßen, Brücken und Gewässer) and the Federal Highway Research Institute (Bundesanstalt für Straßenwesen, BASt) held an online workshop on the topic of Probe Vehicle Data (PVD). The cities participating in the C-Roads Germany Urban Nodes (CRG-UN) project regularly exchange information on connected driving topics in a series of events. The participating cities are currently working on ways to use the status information that connected vehicles send for better traffic control. In the test field in Hamburg, it is to be investigated in particular whether the data can be a supplement to the existing…

MAP Layering successfully implemented and tested on the TAVF

In the City of Hamburg, things continue to progress in terms of ITS and the expansion of the TAVF test track can also report further successes. For more than two years, the test track has been continuously operated as a free, open and manufacturer-independent platform. In the process, the technical upgrade is constantly being further developed. Among other things, the MAP layering at the Ludwig-Erhard-Straße/Holstenwall junction (junction 193) was implemented on a pilot basis at the end of 2020. Here, the MAP is divided into several components and sent to passing vehicles. This division is necessary in order to be able to map all driving relationships of the various road users, even at complex intersections. The test experiences with the…

Impression of the test track with a view of HAW Hamburg's activities

The HAW Hamburg has developed sensors and methods as part of its test activities as a user of the test track in order to identify the position of vehicles when the reception of navigation satellites is disturbed or unavailable. In the process, different, novel sensors and cameras were combined with high-precision environment models and simulations for the geolocated, time- and weather-independent determination of signals relevant for autonomous driving. For its activities, HAW Hamburg used all sections of the TAVF test track from 2019 to 2020, focusing on complex sections with limited availability of e.g. GPS/Galileo. The findings of HAW Hamburg and the driving on the entire TAVF test track are presented in the Youtube video of HAW Hamburg.…
