Test Area Autonomous Driving Baden-Württemberg is ready

The Test Area Autonomous Driving Baden-Württemberg (TAF BW) opened its doors on two consecutive days. During a project event on November 12, 2021, with high-ranking representatives from industry and science and Winfried Hermann, Minister of Transport Baden-Württemberg, findings and research results were presented in the form of lectures and an exhibition including demonstrators. These marked the conclusion of the scientific set-up of the TAF BW, where mobility concepts around autonomous driving in everyday traffic are already being tested today. The operation of the TAF BW will be continued by the Karlsruhe Transport Authority (KVV – Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund). In addition to a comprehensive range of services comprising a networked infrastructure, both a user-oriented and demand-oriented expansion of the TAF BW and technical and scientific support of the test operation are possible. 

On November 13, 2021, interested citizens in both Karlsruhe and Heilbronn had the opportunity to find out more about the Test Area Autonomous Driving Baden-Württemberg. On this day, the focus was on the topic of "Sustainable mobility in the city of tomorrow", which was discussed among others by State Secretary Elke Zimmer from the Ministry of Transport Baden-Württemberg participating in a panel discussion. Participants were also able to find out about a wide variety of innovative transport concepts, technologies and demonstrators that are already being used in the test area. 

It is possible to watch the presentations of the project presentation and the citizens' event (→ external link) on YouTube. 

EICT supported the consortium in the project management as well as in the organisation and implementation of both events.
