Deutsche Messe AG becomes a partner in the German Test Field Lower Saxony consortium with the 5G exhibition centre. This makes it part of a group consisting of the state of Lower Saxony, companies from Lower Saxony and research institutions that are working closely together and with joint financing to set up a test field in Lower Saxony. The goal: to test advanced driver assistance functions as well as automated and networked mobility in practice.
Before the exhibition centre can become a test track, it will have to be measured with high precision by the German Aerospace Center (DLR). SMEV AG will then be the first 5G smart venue customer to test various scenarios with autonomous emergency vehicles under 5G conditions.
„Our 5G exhibition centre can make an important contribution to the mobility of tomorrow.“
"Our mobility is changing at an enormous speed. As a partner in the Test Field Lower Saxony consortium, our 5G exhibition centre can make an important contribution to the mobility of tomorrow, because 1.5 million square metres of space offer different test environments and enable scenarios that do not yet work or are not permitted on public roads", says Dr. Jochen Köckler, chairman of the board of management of Deutsche Messe AG.
