In the Department "Means of Transport" of the Institute of Transportation Research, we deal with the requirements and needs of people and companies for future-proof and sustainable means of transportation. Based on the identified requirements, new mobility concepts are designed and their implementation is accompanied and evaluated. We consider all means of transport, both passenger and cargo. The focus is particularly on new drive technologies, demand-oriented vehicle design as well as automated and networked driving. Our clients and partners are public institutions such as federal ministries and research institutes as well as companies from industry and commerce.
