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 on a road works site at the test track from spring 2021. The collected sensor data will then be available to interested companies via the Urban Data Platform Hamburg. At the ITS World Congress 2021 in Hamburg, visitors can experience this cooperation live. There they can see how construction sites transmit their location and area in real time from the test track.
The GeoNetBake is a joint project of the city of Hamburg and selected sensor manufacturers with the aim of implementing a series production of the sensor technology used. This is currently being tested under real conditions in the Hamburg city area. It is a project of the City of Hamburg (Authority for Transport and Mobility Transformation) and the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure. The implementation is being carried out by the Landesbetrieb Straßen, Brücken und Gewässer Hamburg.
