An aerospace institute researches in transport applications? - Yes! Because many questions and technologies can be transferred: Also, in transport applications, the interaction between the society's mobility demands and the effects of mobility on the environment is very challenging, because the mobility has to be ensured, the environmental protection standards has to be maintained and safety hast to be further improved. The business area transport transfers the institute's expertise gained in the aerospace research to the roads and to the railways. To this end, it clusters all research activities with a focus on ground transport vehicles operating on land and waterways. These research projects pursue the vision of emission-free mobility. Here, intelligent lightweight construction plays a key role. In the interdisciplinary business area “transport”, the institute's various research areas, ranging from efficient simulation methods and low-cost production processes to the testing of integrated systems, interact with each other to shape the environmentally friendly and safe mobility of tomorrow.
