Testfeld Autonomes Fahren/en
Test Area Autonomous Driving Baden-Württemberg
The Test Area Autonomous Driving Baden-Württemberg is a real laboratory for mobility concepts. It aims to promote the development of future-oriented solutions for individual transport and local public transport. Companies and research institutions can test their technologies and services for networked and automated driving - in everyday traffic. With automated cars, buses or commercial vehicles such as street cleaning or delivery services. In contrast to other projects in Germany, the test area, which went into operation in May 2018, covers all types of public roads: Motorway sections, state and federal roads, inner-city routes with tram traffic, cycle, pedestrian and 30 km/h zones, residential areas and multi-storey car parks. The test area routes are located between Karlsruhe, Bruchsal and Heilbronn. The test area is operated by Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund. The KVV also uses the test area itself to test new forms of local public transport - such as autonomous mini buses.
