With the Reallabor Hamburg (RealLabHH) project, the mobility of the metropolis of tomor-row will be field-tested in the here and now, and the findings of these tests will be used to draw up a blueprint for the digital mobility of the future. The social debate regarding digital mobility services will play a central role in these efforts, as it will provide key insights into which approaches actually work best in practice.
The 11 planned subprojects of the RealLabHH project cover a wide range of issues, including mobility budgeting, creating provider-independent mobility platforms, and devising solutions for particularly vulnerable categories of people participating in road traffic. This consortium of companies and organisations is led by the public transport company Hamburger Hoch-bahn AG (HOCHBAHN), and the project envisions ongoing and extensive involvement of lo-cal residents. The findings of the RealLabHH will be presented at the ITS World Congress (ITS-Weltkongress 2021) to be held in October 2021. The City of Hamburg will be hosting this gathering, the largest congress for intelligent transport systems and services (ITS) worldwide, with the support of Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).
