Connecting vehicles and road infrastructure

1. Digital traffic sign register
The goal is to digitally map all traffic signs required under the StVO (German road traffic regulations) in BW and to transfer them to a central database of the state, as a “digital twin”; all this with the help of a web application that is based on a geographical information system in connection with a fully digital workflow of their positioning under the road traffic regulations. This new database is to support automated and connected driving with official data.

2. Combined traffic data collection (“VDE”)
Locations are identified in the network of federal and state roads in BW, at which certain road data can be collected. This data is used to manage traffic, to collect traffic information, for traffic statistics, and for interchange control. At the same time, information is generated for automated and connected driving (e.g. black ice, crosswind) and platforms such as MobiData BW, Mobilithek and Mobility Data Space are supported.
