AIM mobile installations

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) Institute of Transportation Systems uses mobile sensor systems to record and classify motorised and non-motorised road users at different locations. Thanks to their modular design, the sensors offer a flexible basis for the testing of new technology within the areas of road and rail operations. The mobile installations – which are part of the Application Platform for Intelligent Mobility (AIM) – are used to analyse the behaviour of road users in everyday and critical situations. Alongside the testing of prototype assistance concepts and traffic management processes, the sensors are used in real-world traffic flow situations to collect empirical data.
