Since 1 April 2021, Hamburg has been a project partner in the EIT project CELESTE - dynamiC spEed Limits compliancE for optimiSed Traffic management. The project aims to test a dynamic speed limit and its enforcement in cities in order to generate added value for traffic management.
The CELESTE project, coordinated by CTAG - Centro Tecnológico de Automoción de Galicia and funded by the EIT Urban Mobility, was started in a virtual kick-off meeting on 29 April 2021. The consortium consisting of twelve partners will analyse the current synergies between dynamic speed limits and intelligent speed assistance (ISA) systems, define solutions for the entire traffic management value chain and implement them in functional prototypes in the pilot cities of Hamburg, Barcelona and Helmond. The service is being tested by the car manufacturers Seat SA and SKODA AUTO. The CELESTE project will answer some open questions about the in ISA systems, which will be mandatory for all new EU cars from 2022.
About EIT Urban Mobility
EIT Urban Mobility, an initiative of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), aims to accelerate solutions and the transition towards a user-centric, integrated and truly multimodal transport system. As the leading European innovation community for urban mobility, EIT Urban Mobility works to avoid fragmentation by facilitating collaboration between cities, industry, academia, research and innovation to solve the most pressing mobility challenges of cities. Using cities as living labs, its industry, research and university partners will demonstrate how new technologies can work to solve real problems in real cities by transporting people, goods and waste in smarter ways.
