This was the motto of the day of the open test field in Merzig.
Together with the Research Group for Traffic Telematics (FGVT) of htw saar the district town Merzig gave citizens the opportunity to experience this live. In the course of test drives, interested parties could experience at first hand how intelligent transport systems contribute to the improvement of efficiency in road traffic and road safety.

The mobility of the future must be safe, environmentally friendly and flexible. It must also be simple, cheap and accessible to all, in order to maintain and promote the development of the cross-border labour market. Automation and intelligent transport systems play a central role in this context. All possibilities for improving the flow of cross-border workers must be considered. An interesting proposal developed within the TERMINAL project aims to set up an automated electric shuttle bus between France and Germany.

High notables yesterday in Schengen.
Transport ministers from Germany, France, Luxembourg and Saarland met to officially open the cross-border test field for autonomous and connected driving in the border triangle. The first transnational test field is intended to serve industry and research alike to test application scenarios and new technologies across borders on all types of roads.
Federal Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CDU) said at the starting signal for the trinational test field: “The mobility of the future begins now – and we are right in the middle of it”.
Anke Rehlinger, Saarland’s Minister of Transport, was also present and said: “Mobility only makes sense if it works across borders. On the test field we are testing groundbreaking steps on the way to smart mobility concepts”. She also expects a lot from the innovations in autonomous driving: “The results will help us to better align the conditions in cross-border public transport with the needs of the customers”.
