New users on the TAVF: T-Systems and BMW Group carry out test activities as part of the National Platform Mobility RealLabHH

The TAVF test track for automated and connected driving in Hamburg welcomes T-Systems and the BMW Group as new users. Both users are active in subgroup seven "Connected Vulnerable Roads Users" as part of the national platform Mobility in the Reallabor Hamburg. The TAVF test track for automated and connected driving is part of the Reallabor for testing various use cases. Both T-Systems and the BMW Group are testing various selected elements of the TAVF road infrastructure. T-Systems is developing the GLOSA (Green Light Optimum Speed Advice) service with the aim of providing car, bicycle and e-scooter drivers with a "traffic light assistant". For this purpose, the data of the traffic lights are used by the TAVF. The messages are sent to…

New user on the test track: VITRONIC has successfully installed hardware on the TAVF

VITRONIC Dr.-Ing. Stein Bildverarbeitungssysteme GmbH has successfully installed hardware at the Hamburg test track TAVF. The purpose of this test installation is to contribute to optimising traffic flow and increasing road safety for particularly vulnerable road users (including pedestrians and cyclists) at the K94 junction.

 

A video camera in a suitable housing was installed on an existing light mast in Schröderstiftstraße to record the flowing traffic from Schröderstiftstraße in the direction of the K94 junction (Rentzelstraße / Schröderstiftstraße / An der Verbindungsbahn). The light mast is located approx. 180m from the K94 junction. A second camera was integrated into a column installed directly at the K94 junction. Both cameras…

The TAVF and HEAT test tracks are linked up

Since the beginning of the year, in addition to the cooperative vehicles and the traffic signals, the inner-city test track for automated and connected driving (TAVF) and the circuit in HafenCity of the Hamburg Electric Autonomous Transportation (HEAT) research and development project have been connected. By equipping the Mahatma Gandhi Bridge, a bascule bridge in HafenCity, with Roadside ITS Stations (R-ITS-S), the link between the two test sites was completed. For more than two years, both test tracks have been successfully built and operated. In the process, the technical upgrading is constantly being further developed. The two test tracks TAVF and HEAT are together over twelve kilometres long. Starting on the TAVF in Hamburg's city…

C-Roads Workshop on the Probe Vehicle Data Service

As operators of the Test Field for Automated and Connected Driving in Hamburg (TAVF-HH), the Agency for Roads, Bridges and Waterways (Landesbetrieb Straßen, Brücken und Gewässer) and the Federal Highway Research Institute (Bundesanstalt für Straßenwesen, BASt) held an online workshop on the topic of Probe Vehicle Data (PVD). The cities participating in the C-Roads Germany Urban Nodes (CRG-UN) project regularly exchange information on connected driving topics in a series of events. The participating cities are currently working on ways to use the status information that connected vehicles send for better traffic control. In the test field in Hamburg, it is to be investigated in particular whether the data can be a supplement to the existing…

MAP Layering successfully implemented and tested on the TAVF

In the City of Hamburg, things continue to progress in terms of ITS and the expansion of the TAVF test track can also report further successes. For more than two years, the test track has been continuously operated as a free, open and manufacturer-independent platform. In the process, the technical upgrade is constantly being further developed. Among other things, the MAP layering at the Ludwig-Erhard-Straße/Holstenwall junction (junction 193) was implemented on a pilot basis at the end of 2020. Here, the MAP is divided into several components and sent to passing vehicles. This division is necessary in order to be able to map all driving relationships of the various road users, even at complex intersections. The test experiences with the…

Impression of the test track with a view of HAW Hamburg's activities

The HAW Hamburg has developed sensors and methods as part of its test activities as a user of the test track in order to identify the position of vehicles when the reception of navigation satellites is disturbed or unavailable. In the process, different, novel sensors and cameras were combined with high-precision environment models and simulations for the geolocated, time- and weather-independent determination of signals relevant for autonomous driving. For its activities, HAW Hamburg used all sections of the TAVF test track from 2019 to 2020, focusing on complex sections with limited availability of e.g. GPS/Galileo. The findings of HAW Hamburg and the driving on the entire TAVF test track are presented in the Youtube video of HAW Hamburg.…

Hamburg C-ITS stations in the European TENtec interactive Map

Cooperative C-ITS services are available and operational on European roads via ITS-G5 short-range communication. The location of operational C-ITS stations in Europe is available in the European Commission's interactive map. The map shows all existing and operational C-ITS stations that have already been installed in the field and are compliant with the C-Roads specifications. In detail, the map provides information on the status, road name, road operator and C-ITS services coverage. The data in the map is updated on a frequent basis and made available online. This is an important milestone for improving public awareness and visibility of C-ITS services in Europe. The large number of operational road stations and their wide distribution is…

Development status of the test track and outlook for 2021

In Hamburg, ITS is continuously making progress: Hamburg continues to make progress with ITS: In the city of Hamburg, a test track several kilometres long has been available for automated and connected driving since January 2018. Numerous traffic lights have been equipped for infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication to exchange data with passing vehicles. In addition, the urban traffic situation marks the circuit and enables the testing of cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) services and automated driving functions in a real urban traffic environment. Wireless communication between the vehicles and the traffic infrastructure is realised via LTE and WLAN (ITS-G5, IEEE 802.11p). All traffic…

UrbanSmartPark: Intelligent parking of the future - live demonstration

Today the results of the UrbanSmartPark project will be presented and demonstrated at a live event in the port area of the city of Hamburg. During a trip with the research vehicle TEASY 3 of the TU Braunschweig, passengers will be shuttled automatically through the port area of Hamburg to the on-street parking area. There, the vehicle searches for a place on its own and parks automatically. In addition, passengers and interested spectators will be able to observe the parking process and the position of the vehicle live via smartphone.

 

Besides the live demonstration in Hamburg a virtual conference will take place on 16 December 2020 where all partners present their project results. Impressions from the live demonstration event will also…

GeoNetBake: Digital illustration of road works on the TAVF test track

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…
