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…

Scientific development of the VITAL traffic light controls

With the VITAL procedures, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) has developed two novel control procedures for traffic light systems (LSA) based on V2X communication. The procedures have already been successfully implemented and validated at real test intersections in suburban and rural areas. As a scientific user, DLR is now also testing the control systems in urban areas on the TAVF. Both procedures were successfully implemented in October 2020 at junction K94 (Rentzelstraße / Schröderstiftstraße / An der Verbindungsbahn). The VITAL procedures are expected to result in reduced waiting and travel times for road users, optimised traffic flow and lower pollutant emissions. The VITAL control procedures communicate with the vehicles via V2I and…

The sharing provider Voi and the semiconductor manufacturer NXP show connected and safe driving on two wheels in Hamburg

On 14 October, the sharing provider Voi Technology presented the first prototypes of its e-scooters equipped with real-time vehicle communication. The technology comes from semiconductor manufacturer NXP and has been further developed and optimised by both companies for use in scooters. The intelligent systems already used in vehicles are apparently also finding their way into micro-mobility. The scooters provided by Voi are equipped with NXP's V2X technology, which, among other things, should enable collision warning between two e-scooters at an early stage. The prototypes can also communicate with the traffic light systems of the test track for automated and connected driving (TAVF) in Hamburg via WLANp. V2X thus enables safer and more…

Intelligent greetings from the TAVF to the ITS community

The project partners from the TAVF - Test Track for Automated and Connected Driving in Hamburg cannot personally welcome the ITS community at this year's ITS World Congress in Los Angeles. Therefore they send digital greetings from the test track in a video message. In this way the TAVF activities and users will be presented. Since 2018, the test track in Hamburg's city centre has been in operation and is being continuously expanded. The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is gradually equipping more than 55 traffic lights and a bridge for I2V/V2I communication. Since June of this year, all traffic lights have been equipped with PKI version 1.3.1 in accordance with the latest standard for public safety infrastructures. This makes the test…

New users for TAVF!

The test track welcomes the partners from the European research project L3Pilot and the Technical University of Braunschweig as new users.

Together with the partners of the L3Pilot project, various use cases of automated driving will be tested in Hamburg. These include the "Urban Chauffeur" and "Motorway Chauffeur" applications, which will be tested directly on the TAVF or on freeways near the test track.

In addition, the Niedersächsisches Forschungszentrum Fahrzeugtechnik (NFF) of the Technical University of Braunschweig will be testing automated on-street parking on the TAVF from October 2020. The technical goal is to be able to handle short drives as well as the parking process itself along the TAVF without a driver.

RealLab Digital Mobility Hamburg has started

On July 15 2020, when Federal Minister of Transport and Digital Infrastructure Andreas Scheuer presented the funding certificate in Hamburg, the beginning of a large-scale research project, which goes back to the initiative of the National Platform Future of Mobility (NPM), was marked. By the end of 2021, Hamburg will become a real lab for digital mobility and will test innovative mobility offers in ten sub-projects, ranging from mobility platforms and autonomous driving to the use of micro-depots to reduce logistics traffic and on-demand shuttles. The TAVF test track for automated and connected driving is also part of the real lab for testing various use cases.


All projects are tested in real conditions; users can get involved through…

First test track throughout Germany switches to new security standard PKI v1.3.1

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is moving forward with the step-by-step migration of traffic light systems to the new PKI version 1.3.1 and the automatic request of certificates. With immediate effect, all traffic lights on the TAVF track are equipped on the basis of the latest security standard ETSI TS 103 097 v.1.3.1. This makes the test track a German-wide pioneer in IT security for automated and connected driving. To register as a user for the use of certificates, please contact the TAVF office moin@tavf.hamburg

 

With increasing automatisation and connectivity of vehicles and infrastructure, IT security is becoming more and more important. Especially in V2X communication, reliable and trustworthy information exchange between…

35 experts discussed the data model of the TLF-specific interface

At a webinar on April 9, the current status and the planned interface for data provision in the Traffic Light Forecast (TLF) 2.0 project were presented. The TLF 2.0 project builds on the successfully completed pilot project Traffic Light Forecast. The aim of this project is to develop and implement an interface for the non-discriminatory provision of traffic light data via the Urban Data Platform Hamburg (HH_UDP). The platform should be usable for innovative applications of different providers of forecasting services. The required LSA data will be made available on the HH_UDP via a standardised interface, the SensorThings API. Examples of potential C-ITS applications for motorised and non-motorised traffic are TTG (Time-To-Green) or GLOSA…

Traffic Light Forecast 2.0 (TLF 2.0) - Webinar on 9 April 2020

The TLF 2.0 project builds on the successfully completed pilot project Traffic Light Forecast. The aim of this project is to develop and implement an interface for the non-discriminatory provision of traffic light data via the Urban Data Platform Hamburg (HH_UDP).

With this approach, market entry barriers are kept as low as possible and the development of new services is encouraged. These services can contribute to a stabilisation and optimisation of traffic flow and at the same time to a reduction of pollutants. Direct data users (app developers, map service providers, automotive industry, associations, etc.) can obtain data from the Hamburg Urban Platform, create forecasts and offer services for indirect data users (car, truck, bicycle…

25 experts discussed in the virtual SPaT/MAP workshop

In the function of the office for TAVF, ITS mobility together with the City of Hamburg successfully organised a virtual all-day workshop on SPaT/MAP on 25 March 2020. More than 25 experts, including vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, system providers and municipal infrastructure operators, took advantage of the opportunity to exchange ideas. The topic was the digital provision of information on the current and future traffic light signal and the existing road topology and therefore the basis for automated and connected driving in urban areas. 

 

Due to the positive feedback ITS mobility as TAVF office will organise an additional workshop in the second half of the year to discuss further aspects of SPaT/MAP with experts and to define common…
