Automated and connected driving (AVF) plays a major role in Berlin’s transportation research. In addition to many studies on organizational and legal issues, the research activities focus on tests in real traffic, especially in the Digital Urban Traffic Test Bed in the district of Berlin-Reinickendorf.
News from the test bed are regularly published here. An overview of all contributions and news about our projects can be found in the logbook. An overview of all contributions and news about our projects can be found in the logbook.
The Senate Department for the Environment, Transportation and Climate Protection (SenUVK) is responsible for the construction and further development of the test bed, which is consistently focusing on the expansion and modernization of the existing infrastructure. By integrating it into its municipal processes, the State of Berlin is also ensuring that the infrastructure available at the test site will continue to be operated beyond the end of the current project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI). This digital test bed is thus also open to third-parties beyond the end of the current project. The State of Berlin expressly invites you to intensively research, develop and test the future of automated and connected driving in urban traffic here.

Januar 2020 – Juni 2022
In Shuttles&Co, we will address the self-updating of digital maps based on the perception of autonomous vehicles, the improvement of perception and prediction in automated and connected driving, as well as control and traffic information based on V2X communication. The highly automated minibus known as the “See-Meile” will run agin in Alt-Tegel. Additionally acceptance will be researched.
