Traffic Light Forecast 2.0 (TLF 2.0) - Webinar on 9 April 2020

The TLF 2.0 project builds on the successfully completed pilot project Traffic Light Forecast. The aim of this project is to develop and implement an interface for the non-discriminatory provision of traffic light data via the Urban Data Platform Hamburg (HH_UDP).

With this approach, market entry barriers are kept as low as possible and the development of new services is encouraged. These services can contribute to a stabilisation and optimisation of traffic flow and at the same time to a reduction of pollutants. Direct data users (app developers, map service providers, automotive industry, associations, etc.) can obtain data from the Hamburg Urban Platform, create forecasts and offer services for indirect data users (car, truck, bicycle…

25 experts discussed in the virtual SPaT/MAP workshop

In the function of the office for TAVF, ITS mobility together with the City of Hamburg successfully organised a virtual all-day workshop on SPaT/MAP on 25 March 2020. More than 25 experts, including vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, system providers and municipal infrastructure operators, took advantage of the opportunity to exchange ideas. The topic was the digital provision of information on the current and future traffic light signal and the existing road topology and therefore the basis for automated and connected driving in urban areas. 

 

Due to the positive feedback ITS mobility as TAVF office will organise an additional workshop in the second half of the year to discuss further aspects of SPaT/MAP with experts and to define common…

Equipped traffic lights as of January 2020

In Hamburg, ITS is continuously making progress: For more than a year, the test track for automated and networked driving in Hamburg (TAVF) has been established in the city. By now, 6 use cases are being tested by external partners on the test track and 18 traffic light systems are operated with the WLAN-based communication unit according to the 802.11p standard (ITS G5). In addition, six of the systems enable the forecast of the light signal.

Hamburg and Volkswagen continue strategic mobility partnership

On November 21, 2019, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg and the Volkswagen Group extended their strategic mobility partnership, which has been ongoing since 2016, for three years. The focus is on intelligent traffic connectivity, the use of autonomous vehicles, the promotion of electric mobility and innovative mobility services. Together, the City of Hamburg and Volkswagen Group want to use innovative mobility solutions to make the quality of life in urban areas as sustainable, efficient and safe as possible. In addition to implementing concrete projects, the City of Hamburg and the Volkswagen Group are also involved as future drivers for the use of intelligent transport systems (ITS). An important milestone in this context is…

Volkswagen takes positive balance after six months at TAVF

For the last six months, the Volkswagen Group has been testing automated driving at the TAVF in Hamburg with five E-Golfs equipped with more than 30 laser scanners, cameras and radars.

 

On 6th November Volkswagen presented a positive balance on the test track. Due to the complexity of the test track in the city of Hamburg, Volkswagens has been able to receive valuable information since the early part of the year, for example about significant speeding violations by car drivers, pedestrians walking over red traffic lights or cyclists on their way beyond the designated routes. VW project manager Helge Neuner told NDR that the research team has already learned a lot from this. VW Vice Director for Autonomous Driving Alexander Hitzinger…

New user for TAVF - Ibeo Automotive Systems

Ibeo Automotive Systems joins the test track for automated and connected driving in Hamburg as a new user. Ibeo is the sixth user of the test track as a Hamburg specialist in the field of environment detection using laser scanners, LiDAR for short (English acronym for Light Detection And Ranging). As a global technology leader in this field, Ibeo has been actively conducting research and development of automated and connected driving for many years. This progress involves numerous test kilometers of autonomous driving with modified series vehicles on public roads. From the end of 2019/beginning of 2020, Ibeo will use the excellent conditions on the test track for the further development of the systems in urban traffic.

Neusoft Automotives tests the two use cases GLOSA and Smart Engine Start-Stop on the test track

Neusoft is a Chinese System Provider and offers V2X solutions based on DSRC and C-V2X technology. The modular software stack, VeTalk, is hardware agnostic and serves all standards requirements for China, North America and Europe. Tests are conducted on the TAVF test track in Hamburg. The video gives a short overview of the technology and demonstrates two use-cases on the test track in practice. On the one hand the implementation of an optimal speed advisory for the driver (GLOSA), so that traffic lights in front can be passed at green. On the other hand, the influence of the start/stop logic of vehicles to avoid unnecessary engine shutdowns and resulting starting delays (Smart Engine Start-Stop).

Two days after the TAVF Project Forum and Cluster Meeting Hamburg, Hamburg's Mayor Tschentscher tests the test track

On 4th of September 2019 more than 50 experts from industry, public authorities and science exchanged views at the TAVF project forum as part of the ITS mobility Cluster Meeting in cooperation with the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) and the Urban Mobility Lab on the topics of "Automated and Connected Driving" in the Hanseatic city. 

 

Two days later, on 6th of September 2019, Hamburg's Mayor Dr. Peter Tschentscher visited Prof. Dr. Rasmus Rettig of HAW Hamburg to find out more about sensor technology and automation technology. Afterwards, the mayor tested them during a trip with a Tesla on the test track. The test track is one of about 70 current projects of the Senate Strategy for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS).…
