Hamburg

Hamburg, a metropolitan region with 5.3 million residents and Germany’s central logistics hub is the place to be for the ITS community in October 2021.

The city is growing and, with it, the demands of industry and citizens for mobility are also changing. Hamburg sees this not only as a challenge, but above all as an opportunity for the development of intelligent transport systems.

ITS Strategy

In Hamburg, future mobility is not just a vision. In line with the city’s ITS strategy, more than 35 projects already explore the potential of digital trends for the transport industry today.

Hamburg is one of the first German cities to test autonomous and connected vehicles on a manufacturer-independent course right in the city centre. Other projects include smart parking sensors, traffic-light phase assistants and on-demand shuttles. Also the port develops and implements intelligent logistics solutions. At the Altenwerder Container Terminal, for example, automated guided vehicles transport the containers to designated locations.

ITS Projects

HEAT

With HEAT (Hamburg Electric Autonomous Transportation), Hochbahn, Hamburg’s main public transport operator, is set to test its first automated electric minibus on public streets. By 2020, up to ten passengers per ride will be able to travel through Hamburg’s HafenCity.

TAVF

A nine-kilometre long test track for automated and connected driving has been set up in Hamburg’s inner city. The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is upgrading its traffic light systems to enable infrastructure to vehicle (I2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communication.

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) – Switchh

Real mobility stations combine public transport with a range of other mobility services such as car and bike sharing. In the near future, a digital platform will bring together our overall and multimodal mobility services.

About Young Mobility Community

Young people increasingly focus on the effects of traffic on society and the environment. The ITS World Congress wants to present all aspects of mobility and make them understandable. We want to speak to students and understand their wishes, their visions and concerns and bring them to the congress.
