Germany test site (D)

The German urban test site is located in the city of Dortmund, which is part of the German Ruhr Area. The city operates more than 450 intersection traffic light controllers, traffic control centres and several public transport operators while all the subsystems are interconnected. The test site is considered to be the urban test area for the SAFESPOT urban related application that will be developed and implemented mainly by German companies.
