Hamburg C-ITS stations in the European TENtec interactive Map

Cooperative C-ITS services are available and operational on European roads via ITS-G5 short-range communication. The location of operational C-ITS stations in Europe is available in the European Commission's interactive map. The map shows all existing and operational C-ITS stations that have already been installed in the field and are compliant with the C-Roads specifications. In detail, the map provides information on the status, road name, road operator and C-ITS services coverage. The data in the map is updated on a frequent basis and made available online. This is an important milestone for improving public awareness and visibility of C-ITS services in Europe. The large number of operational road stations and their wide distribution is…

Development status of the test track and outlook for 2021

In Hamburg, ITS is continuously making progress: Hamburg continues to make progress with ITS: In the city of Hamburg, a test track several kilometres long has been available for automated and connected driving since January 2018. Numerous traffic lights have been equipped for infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication to exchange data with passing vehicles. In addition, the urban traffic situation marks the circuit and enables the testing of cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) services and automated driving functions in a real urban traffic environment. Wireless communication between the vehicles and the traffic infrastructure is realised via LTE and WLAN (ITS-G5, IEEE 802.11p). All traffic…

UrbanSmartPark: Intelligent parking of the future - live demonstration

Today the results of the UrbanSmartPark project will be presented and demonstrated at a live event in the port area of the city of Hamburg. During a trip with the research vehicle TEASY 3 of the TU Braunschweig, passengers will be shuttled automatically through the port area of Hamburg to the on-street parking area. There, the vehicle searches for a place on its own and parks automatically. In addition, passengers and interested spectators will be able to observe the parking process and the position of the vehicle live via smartphone.

 

Besides the live demonstration in Hamburg a virtual conference will take place on 16 December 2020 where all partners present their project results. Impressions from the live demonstration event will also…

GeoNetBake: Digital illustration of road works on the TAVF test track

The GeoNetBake project aims to use sensor-supported roadworks lights to record live information, such as the actual location and area of roadworks, and to display this information as an area on digital maps. The newly acquired information allows traffic in and around Hamburg to be controlled more efficiently. In future, navigation services, for example, will be able to call up the georeferenced data obtained via the central data hub Urban Data Platform Hamburg and make it available to road users. 

 

In addition to navigation services, autonomously driving vehicles can also benefit from the real-time data of the GeoNetBake. As part of a cooperation between the TAVF test track and the GeoNetBake project, the sensor-based lights will be used…

Scientific development of the VITAL traffic light controls

With the VITAL procedures, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) has developed two novel control procedures for traffic light systems (LSA) based on V2X communication. The procedures have already been successfully implemented and validated at real test intersections in suburban and rural areas. As a scientific user, DLR is now also testing the control systems in urban areas on the TAVF. Both procedures were successfully implemented in October 2020 at junction K94 (Rentzelstraße / Schröderstiftstraße / An der Verbindungsbahn). The VITAL procedures are expected to result in reduced waiting and travel times for road users, optimised traffic flow and lower pollutant emissions. The VITAL control procedures communicate with the vehicles via V2I and…

The sharing provider Voi and the semiconductor manufacturer NXP show connected and safe driving on two wheels in Hamburg

On 14 October, the sharing provider Voi Technology presented the first prototypes of its e-scooters equipped with real-time vehicle communication. The technology comes from semiconductor manufacturer NXP and has been further developed and optimised by both companies for use in scooters. The intelligent systems already used in vehicles are apparently also finding their way into micro-mobility. The scooters provided by Voi are equipped with NXP's V2X technology, which, among other things, should enable collision warning between two e-scooters at an early stage. The prototypes can also communicate with the traffic light systems of the test track for automated and connected driving (TAVF) in Hamburg via WLANp. V2X thus enables safer and more…

Intelligent greetings from the TAVF to the ITS community

The project partners from the TAVF - Test Track for Automated and Connected Driving in Hamburg cannot personally welcome the ITS community at this year's ITS World Congress in Los Angeles. Therefore they send digital greetings from the test track in a video message. In this way the TAVF activities and users will be presented. Since 2018, the test track in Hamburg's city centre has been in operation and is being continuously expanded. The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is gradually equipping more than 55 traffic lights and a bridge for I2V/V2I communication. Since June of this year, all traffic lights have been equipped with PKI version 1.3.1 in accordance with the latest standard for public safety infrastructures. This makes the test…

New users for TAVF!

The test track welcomes the partners from the European research project L3Pilot and the Technical University of Braunschweig as new users.

Together with the partners of the L3Pilot project, various use cases of automated driving will be tested in Hamburg. These include the "Urban Chauffeur" and "Motorway Chauffeur" applications, which will be tested directly on the TAVF or on freeways near the test track.

In addition, the Niedersächsisches Forschungszentrum Fahrzeugtechnik (NFF) of the Technical University of Braunschweig will be testing automated on-street parking on the TAVF from October 2020. The technical goal is to be able to handle short drives as well as the parking process itself along the TAVF without a driver.

RealLab Digital Mobility Hamburg has started

On July 15 2020, when Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure Andreas Scheuer presented the funding certificate in Hamburg, the beginning of a large-scale research project, which goes back to the initiative of the National Platform Future of Mobility (NPM), was marked. By the end of 2021, Hamburg will become a real lab for digital mobility and will test innovative mobility offers in ten sub-projects, ranging from mobility platforms and autonomous driving to the use of micro-depots to reduce logistics traffic and on-demand shuttles. The TAVF test track for automated and connected driving is also part of the real lab for testing various use cases.


All projects are tested in real conditions; users can get involved through…

First test track throughout Germany switches to new security standard PKI v1.3.1

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is moving forward with the step-by-step migration of traffic light systems to the new PKI version 1.3.1 and the automatic request of certificates. With immediate effect, all traffic lights on the TAVF track are equipped on the basis of the latest security standard ETSI TS 103 097 v.1.3.1. This makes the test track a German-wide pioneer in IT security for automated and connected driving. To register as a user for the use of certificates, please contact the TAVF office moin@tavf.hamburg
