MODI carried out important reference drive for highly automated freight transport on TAVF

The MODI project recently reached an important milestone for the future automation of truck traffic: The consortium of the European H2020 project carried out a reference drive on the test track for automated and connected driving with a series truck equipped with high-precision measuring devices. For the first time, the measurements evaluated the vehicle's performance under real conditions and in combination with upgraded infrastructure that supports highly automated driving.


In the MODI project, a consortium of 29 partners from science and industry is developing and testing solutions for autonomous truck traffic. The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is part of the project as a living lab. The test track is located between the highway and the terminal area of the Port of Hamburg and also uses the digital infrastructure of the TAVF.
