Darmstadt, 2021/02/26. The annual conference "Bad Roads Well Built" held by the Institute for Road and Pavement Engineering at TU Darmstadt took place this year as an online event due to the coronavirus. Our proving ground expert Rainer Staron presented the topic "Traffic Control for Proving Grounds - Interaction between Traffic Control and Infrastructure" in front of about 140 connected participants. In his lecture he discussed future challenges in the construction and operation of proving grounds for the automotive and its supplier industry.

To enable the effectively interaction between the Proving Ground Management System (PGMS) with infrastructure systems such as barriers, variable traffic signs, weather stations, etc., framework conditions must be observed. This applies to existing infrastructure, but also to future systems that will not be planned until later. Based on his long-standing experience in managing a well-known proving ground, Rainer recommends taking future-proof precautions for the operation as early as the planning and construction phase.

His presentation is available on request.
