Transport and the Environment (VEU)
Securing the mobility of people and goods and at the same time preserving a healthy environment and natural resources is one of the main challenges our societies face. The DLR internal project “Transport and the Environment” (VEU) aims to analyze the complete contextual chain from mobility behavior and transport formation through to the environmental and societal effects of traffic and mobility...
InitiativE Berlin-Brandenburg: Elektrische Flottenfahrzeuge für die Hauptstadtregion
Bei der Erreichung des Zieles der Bundesregierung, bis 2020 eine Million Elektrofahrzeuge in Deutschland auf die Straße zu bringen, spielen gerade Firmenfahrzeuge mit einem Anteil von fast 62% bei Erstzulassungen eine große Rolle. Die Nationale Plattform Elektromobilität (NPE) stellte dazu fest, dass der Einsatz von...
Electric mobility as a component of the transformation in energy usage and climate protection
Climate protection requires a drastic reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions. In order to achieve the German goal of almost complete elimination of emissions by 2050, a significant and early structural change in all energy consuming sectors is required. The project examines what contribution electromobility can make to achieve ...
Verkehrssystemische Elektromobilitätsforschung: „Märkte und Nutzer“
Im Rahmen des Portfoliothemas „Verkehrssystemische Elektromobilitätsforschung“ erforscht das Institut für Verkehrsforschung den Teilbereich „Märkte und Nutzer“. Basierend auf einer fundierten Expertise in der Erforschung des Gesamtsystems Verkehr wird die Durchdringung des Verkehrssystems mit Elektrofahrzeugen sowie...
Mileage Survey 2014: Scientific Supervision and Evaluation
The total mileage of vehicles is the sum of all travelled kilometers that occur during a fixed period of time on a predefined road network. Mileage is one of the most important indicators describing usage of the road transport infrastructure. Further estimates, such as an evaluation of traffic safety or a calculation of traffic-induced environmental effects, can be carried out based on this indicator...
WIV-RAD: Analysis of bicycle use in commercial transport
Bicycles in their various structural shapes were a common means of transport for freight distribution and internal company transport in the first half of the 20th century. They have also been used as company vehicles for purposes besides goods transport, such as service trips by craftsmen. However, with the rise of automobiles in the 1950s and 1960s, bicycles were increasingly...
WiMobil: Effects of e-carsharing on transport and the environment in urban areas
Within the framework of the project WiMobil, which is funded by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), the effects of e-carsharing on transport and the environment in urban areas will be analyzed. Various empirical methods, taking the example cases of Flinkster (DB Rent) and...
STREETLIFE: Steering towards Green and Perceptive Mobility of the Future
STREETLIFE will develop a multi-modal urban mobility information system that provides mobile information services to end users in order to promote sustainable transport alternatives, thus reducing traffic and related emissions in cities. It also offers to traffic management centers and city administrations sophisticated ICT...
Next Generation Train: NGT CARGO
Das Aufkommen der Kurier-, Express- und Paketdienstleister (KEP), von Stückgutverkehren sowie das Güteraufkommen der Frachtdrehscheiben an Großflughäfen werden in den kommenden Jahren ansteigen. Ein attraktives Transportangebot mit kurzen Fahrzeiten und hoher Zuverlässigkeit kann dem Verkehrsträger Schiene zusätzliches Frachtpotenzial vom konkurrierenden...
Mobility Trends in Cutting Edge Cities
Urban agglomerations around the world set the pace in initiating transformation and many new trends evolve in mega cities. Particularly in densely populated inner-city districts, multimodal travel patterns are more and more common, paving the way for the rapidly-growing use of public transport and cycling. In contrast, private car traffic is still continuing to grow further out in the urban sprawl. This development...
Scientific support for the development of a mobility and fuel strategy of the German government.
What are options to enable future mobility in Germany? In many cases, the problem is to firstly establish a new infrastructure for alternative fuels and propulsion before users are able to adopt them. What are the policy makers’ options to develop solutions to this problem?...
Smart e-User: Optimisation of urban logistics concept for electric vehicles
With a focus on city logistics, Smart e-User integrates electric vehicles into current transport structures of the project’s industry partners in Berlin. These partners represent possible user groups for commercial transport by electric vehicles within urban areas. A neutral platform for a dynamic dispositioning...
DisLog: Electric vechicles for efficient urban distribution logistics
The logistics concept developed within the frame of the DisLog project is aimed at urban distribution requirements. Based on empirical research and extended expert interviews, detailed requirements towards such an urban distribution concept will be identified. The resulting developed specifications form the basis for the configuration of vans and...
NaNu! Multiple Shift Operation and Night Delivery with Electric Commercial Vehicles
Deliveries to and within inner-city areas are a fundamental cause of temporary local bottlenecks in traffic and dominate the local peak concentration periods of relevant pollutants. A shift of deliveries into night time would contribute to decongesting roads. A conflict arises in trying to protect sleeping hours (e.g. from delivery noise) and...
Potsdamer Platz: Berlin nachhaltig erleben
Das Quartier Potsdamer Platz gehört zu den spannendsten und vielseitigsten Orten in der Hauptstadt. Täglich kommen bis zu 100.000 Menschen an diesen Platz, um eine außergewöhnliche Mischung aus Kunst, Entertainment, Shopping zu erleben. Die zentrale Lage und hohe Nutzungsdichte des Quartiers, erfordern eine nachhaltige Mobilitätsstrategie...
Green eMotion: Development of the European Framework for Electromobility
The Green eMotion project is part of the European Green Cars Initiative (EGCI) that was launched within the context of the European Recovery Plan. It supports the achievement of the EU’s ambitious climate goals, such as the reduction of CO2 emissions by 60 percent by the year 2050...
The energy transition in Germany and other European countries, the accelerated abandonment of nuclear power, the fast expansion of renewables and the ambitious increase in energy efficiency are major challenges in the transformation of the energy sector as a whole. This transformation is not only a technical challenge, but also has a societal dimension...
TAPAS: Model for future demand in passenger transport
The TAPAS transport model provides data on the future development of passenger transport demand. Socio-demographic data and information on the time use of people whose mobility behavior is documented form its basis. TAPAS serves to map and evaluate measures and altered framework conditions which influence the demand for passenger transport and its infrastructure.
SELECT - Electric Mobility in Commercial Transport
The project “Suitable electromobility for commercial transport“ (SELECT) investigates how electric vehicles could contribute to an environmentally sustainable alternative to current patterns of urban commercial transport. Commercial transport not only represents a significant share of urban transport but is at the same time responsible for a substantial amount of air pollution and noise.
MOLECULES – Mobility Based on Electric Connected Vehicles in Urban and Interurban Smart, Clean Environments
MOLECULES is a demonstration object for electromobility including three large-scale pilot sites in Barcelona, Paris and Berlin. Supported by ITS (Intelligent Transportation Services), a so-called Smart Connected Electromobility (SCE) should be integrated into available transport and mobility applications...
