AEROFLEX: Aerodynamic and Flexible Trucks for Next Generation of Long Distance Road Transport
A paradigm shift is needed to meet the future challenges of more effective road freight transport. The "Physical Internet" stands for this as a new vision of future logistics for physical goods to achieve a sustainable logistics and transport system. This includes the optimisation of multimodal transport chains by drawing on the advantages of the ...
ART-Forum: Automated Road Transport Forum for the North Sea Region
The technological development towards automated transport is fast. It is likely that automated road transport (ART) will change spatial development and the transport system in the North Sea Region and beyond in a fundamental way. Currently, much enabling of technological developments and test applications of automated vehicles ...
Automated Transport system
Automation in transport is expected to have a massive impact on the design of the entire transport system in the coming years and decades. For example, public transport could become increasingly flexible and individualized, new user groups could be opened up for individual transport, or road freight transport could be made more flexible and cost-effective.
BEniVer - Accompanying research on the energy transition in transport
Within the framework of the research initiative "Energiewende im Verkehr", the scientific accompanying research project "BEniVer" comprehensively investigates the development of renewable fuels with the aim of networking the 14 technical research projects of the initiative with more than 100 participating research groups and industrial partners, to leverage synergy potentials and ...
CADIA: Japanese-German Research Cooperation on Connected and Automated Driving: Socio-economic impact assessment
Connected and automated driving (CAD) will change diverse dimensions of the transportation system, such as car ownership decisions and the emergence of new mobility services. In CADIA, the diffusion of ...
EVer: Energy and Transport
In order to achieve Germany's environmental goals, major changes in the energy and transport sectors are required. In the energy sector, the switch to renewable electricity has already begun and significant progress has been made, although further development of renewables presents challenges. In contrast, the transport sector ...
EXPERI - The traffic turnaround as a social-ecological real experiment
The Institute for Transport Research investigates how active mobility - especially walking - can be promoted in cities and which new land potentials arise from the elimination of car infrastructures. A transdisciplinary approach is pursued, in which urban space is temporarily redesigned within the framework of real experiments and the effects on land use are...
FCCP: Fuel Cell Cargo Pedelecs
Today, 75% of all Europeans live in cities. Despite the steady increase of city dwellers, the quality of life in cities continues to be significantly reduced by air and noise pollution, as well as traffic jams. Fuel Cell Cargo pedelecs provide a possible solution in many regards...
Research Information System for Mobility and Transport
The Research Information System (FIS: Forschungs-Informations-System) funded and published by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) 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...
Mikromobilität auf Geh- und Radwegen - Nutzungskonflikte und verkehrliche Wirkungen (MMoNK)
Das Projekt untersucht die verkehrlichen Wirkungen und Nutzungskonflikte von neu aufkommenden elektrisch unterstützten Verkehrsmitteln als technische Innovation. Damit wird ein Thema aufgegriffen, zu dem es bisher kaum wissenschaftliche Studien, aber großen Handlungsbedarf in den Kommunen gibt.
Move Urban: Space-efficient housing and mobility concepts in growing urban and new suburban neighborhoods.
The growth of cities leads to a higher demand for mobility supply at the same time as decreasing land reserves. Resolving this conflict requires...
New Paths: Paths to sustainable mobility in Lower Saxony
The energy transition within the transportation sector has gained increasing importance within Germany in recent years and is an important element in achieving climate goals. The main focus for transportation is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants.
Site-selection tool for the expansion of infrastructure for alternative fuels (IAK)
Limited range, long charging time, and uncertainty in finding charging infrastructure nearby or during a trip are common reasons against purchasing an electric vehicle. This in turn leads to a low overall demand of these vehicles. Thus, charging infrastructure available nationwide and sufficiently dimensioned for each location is essential for successful market ramp-up of electric vehicles in Germany.
TraK: Transport and Climate
The project Transport and climate (TraK) aims to develop a reference projection for the global transport demand and its emissions. In case studies, the effect of different measures and pathways will be analyzed. The time horizon will be 2050, together with an outlook to 2100.
UrMo Digital: Urbane Mobilität Digital
Städtische Personenverkehrs- und Güterversorgungssysteme bedienen die Mobilitätsbedürfnisse der Menschen und ermöglichen die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung in Städten. Verkehr aber hat insbesondere in dicht besiedelten Gebieten auch negative Auswirkungen, etwa die Beeinträchtigung der öffentlichen Gesundheit und der Lebensqualität durch Luftschadstoff- und Lärmbelastungen ...
Transport in Figures
The handbook "Transport in Figures” (Ger. Verkehr in Zahlen, ViZ) presents the state of the transport system and its development in Germany and in the European Union. The annually published compendium has been a comprehensive reference on transport statistics in Germany for almost fifty years.
