HEAT on street – The first Autonomous Shuttle Bus for Hamburg

On 31st July 2019, Hamburg Senator for Economic Affairs Michael Westhagemann and HOCHBAHN CEO Henrik Falk presented the trial operation of Hamburg Electric Autonomous Transportation, short HEAT, in HafenCity. A Germany-wide unique research and development project for the integration of an electrically driven, driverless shuttle bus into regular road traffic. From mid-2020, the first passengers are able to test the shuttle bus, so that by October 2021, in time for the World Congress Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, the shuttle will be able to travel a 1.8 km stretch without accompanying personnel and reach several stops. Heat is connected to the test track for automated and networked driving in…

Successful commissioning of two further facilities

Since the turn of the year, two further traffic light systems have been equipped and commissioned with the ITS-G5 based communication unit in addition to the previous four systems. An essential part of the modernisation is the local and digital provision of information about the traffic light image (SPaT) and the existing road topology (MAP). Depending on the existing traffic light system, the SPaT messages can also provide information about the remaining time of the current traffic light image and, in future, forecasts about the further course of the traffic light image. This means that 6 locations are available on the test track for testing automated and networked driving functions and applications. By the end of the year, 5 more systems…

New users for TAVF!

The Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) and NXP join the test track for automated and networked driving in Hamburg as new users. In the future, there will be various collaborations with the Urban Mobility Lab of HAW Hamburg, which will carry out research on the communication infrastructure during construction and operation. Among other things, the Urban Mobility Lab is working on the development of methods and sensors to determine the position of vehicles if there is a disturbance in the reception of navigation satellites or if it is not available. 
In addition, the Dutch semiconductor manufacturer NXP will test applications on the test track over the next few months. To this end, the so-called "PedelACC" will be used to…

Volkswagen is testing fully automated driving in normal traffic

Hamburg's inner-city test track for automated and networked driving (TAVF) has its first user: Volkswagen. For the first time, Volkswagen Group Research will test automated driving up to Level 4 with five e-Golfs, equipped with laser scanners, cameras, ultrasonic sensors and radars, on a section of the track under real urban traffic conditions. This will provide important insights into the requirements for the future infrastructure and the effects of automated driving on the city. According to Michael Westhagemann, Senator for Economics, Transport and Innovation, automated driving will be of great importance at the 2021 World Congress for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) in Hamburg. There, the nine-kilometer test track will also be used…

Construction and commissioning of the first facilities successfully completed in 2018

At the turn of the year a further intersection with the ITS-G5 based communication unit was equipped and put into operation. An essential part of the upgrade is the local and digital provision of information on the current signal phase (SPaT) and the existing road topology (MAP). Depending on the existing traffic light system, the SPaT messages can also provide information on the remaining time of the current signal phase and, in future, forecasts on the further course of the signal phase. Since the beginning of the year, 4 locations on the test track have been available for testing automated and connected driving functions and applications. By the middle of the year, the scope of the test track is to be extended to 12 systems.

Information event for citizens

At an information evening, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg presented the test track and answered questions from interested citizens. The introductory lectures and a panel discussion gave a compact overview of the objectives of the test track, equipment features and the development status of automated driving.

Afterwards, visitors were invited to have technical details explained to them at three market stands and to discuss future issues with experts: 

 

  • How does the test track work? Which technology will be installed, how will the infrastructure look like?
  • What happens on the test track? What are the goals of the project?
  • How does automated and networked driving change traffic?
