On August 28, 2019, the State Secretary Stefan Muhle from the Lower Saxony Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labor, Transport and Digitalisation, visited the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Braunschweig to get an overview of the current development status of the “Lower Saxony Test Field”. Our colleagues Michael Gieselmann and Jens Bläsche were also on site. The Niedersachsen test field will built up a research infrastructure for automated and networked mobility. This open research and development platform offers a unique and comprehensive set of testing and testing opportunities, from simulation to public transport routes. The construction of the infra structure for the project Testfeld Niedersachsen as well as the digitization of the road network are funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Land Niedersachsen.
