The services will initially be used on the nine-kilometer test track for Automated and Connected Driving in Hamburg (TAVF-HH) and then expanded on the main road network in Hamburg. It offers a particularly complex framework for testing cooperative ITS services.


The test track runs along on heavily loaded city streets, including main roads and district roads. Here, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is gradually upgrading traffic lights for the infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication there.


With the test track, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg offers an open platform for vehicle manufacturers, technology companies, and research institutions to trials applications of V2I/I2V communication as well as of connected and automated driving.
