Since 2018, the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg has implemented infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications systems.

A several kilometers long test track for automated and connected driving (TAVF) is being built in the city enabling vehicle manufacturers, technology companies and research institutions to test ITS applications, safety and assistance systems as well as automated and connected driving functions in the real traffic environment on public roads.

The Living Lab (LL) in Hamburg is part of the 5GLOGINNOV research and innovation program. A wide range of port-driven technological and societal innovations related to 5G technologies and digital transformation have been implemented and tested in the Hanseatic city, together with the LL of Luka Koper and Athens.

At the LL Hamburg, the partners SWARCO, tec4U, Continental and T-Systems have demonstrated the potential of leveraging positive environmental impact by applying the functionalities of 5G for hybrid V2X-communication and traffic management, in particular outside the port and the hinterland. For this, an innovative set of use cases has been developed to be tested in Hamburg’s TAVF, e.g. Floating Truck and Emission Data (FTED), 5G based Green Light Optimum Speed Advisory (GLOSA) and dynamic control loop for traffic management actions (DCET).
