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). Hamburg will also host the ITS World Congress from 11 to 15 October 2021, at which a wide range of applications will be presented to visitors on the test track.
