Test field Germany: model region Hessen.

The simTD test field is located in the Frankfurt-Rhine-Main area of Hesse. With several hundreds of ITS Stations consisting of ITS Vehicle Stations and ITS Roadside Stations installed by the Hessian traffic centre (VZH) and the Integrated Traffic Management Center Frankfurt (IGLZ), car-to-x communication will be tested under real conditions.  By doing so the vehicles of the simTD test fleet interchange data with traffic lights, road signs, and the traffic control center.


The Frankfurt-Rhine-Main area is an important German traffic hub with major traffic generators such as the Frankfurt Airport, the Frankfurt Trade Fair and the stadium. The area is characterised by high traffic density and therefore allows experiments on all road safety and traffic efficiency functions under normal everyday conditions.

In addition, the Hessian model region offers excellent infrastructure equipment to collect traffic data and also traffic control facilities as well as all relevant road categories. This allows results to be transferred to other regions. 


Hessen Mobil - Road and Traffic Management is a partner with vast experience in large scientific projects.

The simTD Test Field Hesse centred around Frankfurt am Main.
