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.
„Ich ersetze ein Auto“: Electric cargo bikes for couriers and express logistics services
As part of the Climate Initiative (funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment), 40 electric cargo bikes are integrated in daily courier deliveries. Electric cargo bikes allow a payload of 100kg and a higher delivery speed than non-motorized cargo bikes.
eCoMove - Cooperative Mobility Systems and Services for Energy Efficiency
The project eCoMove is developing different vehicle-based applications for supporting an economic manner of driving and testing their effectiveness. Furthermore, there is a networking of vehicles and traffic control centres by modern communication technologies.
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. In this context, mobility services for a better integration of both existing and new electrical vehicle fleets into daily operations, are developed, demonstrated and evaluated in relation to their functionality and effectiveness.
Transport development and environment (VEU)
Mobility of persons and goods satisfies individual human needs. It provides employment and enables the division of labour in a globalized world. However, the permanent increase of mobility demands has also negative consequences. Traffic provides a major contribution to the emission of CO
and air pollutants. Furthermore, people are directly or indirectly affected by negative traffic effects like noise.
COFRET – CO2 Emissions of Freight Transport
The European Union (EU) has stated that global temperatures should not exceed pre-industrial levels by more than 2°C in order to keep impacts of climate change at a manageable level. To reach this target, industrialised countries and regions, including the EU, are expected to reduce their total annual GHG emissions by 30% up to 2020 and by 60-80% by 2050, compared to 1990 emission levels.
MoMo - Multimodale Mobilität in Kolumbien und Deutschland
Im Rahmen des Forschungsprojekts "
bilität" (MoMo) untersucht das DLR Institut für Verkehrsforschung gemeinsam mit Partnern der Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá den Stand und die Perspektiven intermodaler Verkehrskonzepte und multimodaler Mobilität in Städten Kolumbiens und Deutschlands. Das Projekt wird durch den Deutschen Akademischen Austauchdienst (DAAD) unterstützt.
AMITRAN – Assessment Methodologies for ICT in Multimodal Transport from User Behaviour to CO2 Reduction
The AMITRAN project will develop a framework for the evaluation of the effects of ICT measures in traffic and transport on energy efficiency and CO2 emissions. By doing so, it will contribute to the development of ICT solutions that allow more efficient multimodal goods transport and passenger mobility. It is AMITRAN’s ambition to build the foundations for a standardised assessment of future European ICT developments.
Electromobility Fleet Test: sub-project usage potential
Next to the main task of the technical realisation and testing of plug-in hybrid vehicles by the cooperative project partners, the framework conditions for electromobility will be examined in detail. The research is focused on two levels: At the macro level, the whole usage potential for the transport segment of electromobility is of primary interest. At the micro level, the focus lays on individual users with their specific requirements and preferences as well as their everyday experiences in the course of the fleet test.
Integration of logistics hubs and their specific volume of traffic in freight transport demand modelling
Logistics hubs play an important role in transport processes between sender and recipients. Specific characteristics of logistics hubs cause differences in transport volumes. These transport differences cannot actually be taken up by the transport demand theory, as neither a general nor a node typological classification exists.
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. This takes places in the context of a sustainable transport policy, which at the same time ensures a high measure of mobility.
Research Information System for Mobility, Transport and Urban Development (FIS – Forschungs-Informations-System)
The Research Information System (FIS) – Forschungs-Informations-System) funded and published by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Affairs (BMVBS) is an internet-based knowledge platform. Since 2001, the FIS supplies and presents knowledge and research studies from the fields of mobility, transport and urban development. As an instrument of policy advice, it should establish a knowledge transfer from science and research into transport-related practice for various political levels and planning levels.
