Urban road scenario: finding the best way through the city.

Urban road scenario: finding the best way through the city.

The city test field comprises an important part of the main roads through the city of Frankfurt. This includes all relevant traffic generators, such as the Frankfurt Trade Fair, the main station, the Commerzbank arena, the Bürostadt Niederrad, the train station and Frankfurt Airport. The selected city roads are directly connected to the subordinate road network. Plans are to place one ITS Roadside Station at each major signalized intersection, mostly realising distances of less than 500m.

The focus in addition to the general traffic situation survey is on traffic lights network control, local traffic-actuated traffic lights control, location information services as well as testing of light phases and intersection / cross-traffic assistant systems.
