PoDIUM’s living lab in Germany: making intersections safer

PoDIUM’s living lab in Germany: making intersections safer

2 November 2023

The PoDIUM project is dedicated to advancing Connected, Cooperative, and Automated Mobility (CCAM) services in Europe by enhancing essential Physical and Digital Infrastructure (PDI) technologies. To realise this ambitious vision, the project has identified five specific use cases that focus on particular technologies. Discover them and their activities in Germany, Spain and Italy, starting with a detailed description of the suburban district of Ulm-Lehr, situated in the German state of Baden-Württemberg and part of the city of Ulm.

This Living Lab, centrally located within the district, encompasses two roads: a main road and a side road, each with one lane in either direction. At a T-junction, the side road converges with the main priority road, creating a potentially hazardous navigation point due to occlusion caused by nearby buildings and vegetation. The junction’s infrastructure is equipped with multiple communication technologies, edge computing capabilities, and infrastructure sensors affixed to lampposts.
