Digital Test Field A9

Providentia Testfeld

Providentia Test Field for Autonomous and Connected Driving

The project Providentia is located in the digital test field highway A9 in the north of Munich. It stretches from Garching-Nord over Munich-Schwabing to the headquarters of fortiss. This stretch of the Autobahn A9 is characterized by high traffic densities and its traffic internchange München-Nord is one of the busiest interchanges in Bavaria. In the frame our project, we install an intelligent infrastructure, which contains distributed sensors and 5G communication technology on described highway. Additionally a high precision map of the test field will be created. The projecet goal is to conduct research on how to efficiently process the sensory information streams gathered from our intelligent infrastructure and provide useful information to traffic participants. That is autonomous, as well as manually steered vehicles.
