MUV - Measures for the reallocation of traffic areas
Traffic and urban planning measures for the reallocation of traffic areas for motorized traffic in favor of active mobility and a sustainable urban settlement structure with a high quality of life. What other approaches are there to strengthen active mobility? And how can they be implemented within specific, existing urban structures? The project “MUV - Measures for the reallocation of traffic areas” is investigating these questions.
SuVeKo - Development of a sufficiency strategy for the transport sector and its successful communication
In recent years, technical progress and efficiency improvements have failed to bring about a turnaround toward greater sustainability in the area of mobility. Numerous counterproductive effects, such as increasing passenger and commercial traffic or the overcompensation of efficiency savings by more powerful drives, have caused CO2 emissions in the mobility sector to continue to rise...
MOBITAT 2050 Living and Working 2050 - Sustainable Mobility for Commuters of the Future
Large cities in Germany have been experiencing strong population growth for years. This development is accompanied by both positive and negative effects for cities. The influx of young and employable people in particular is a great benefit for cities. At the same time, problems are emerging, ...
COROTRANS: Effects of the CORONA pandemic on logistics, mobility, and the transport system
The outbreak of the novel CORONA virus (Sars-CoV-2) and its rapid global spread pose major challenges to the world. Governments around the world have taken measures to restrict social contacts and the mobility...
HI-CAM: Helmholtz Climate Initiative
The mobility project constitutes one of the nine research projects belonging to the Adaptation cluster of the Helmholtz Climate Initiative. It investigates the potential impact of climate change on mobility in passenger and freight transport as well as in urban spaces in particular.
HiFi - Hamburg innovation for charging infrastructure: Evaluation of the " Residential Charging Real Laboratory "
In order to achieve environmental goals, the electrification of vehicles will play an essential role. Electric vehicles (battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid vehicles) require sufficient public and private charging infrastructure.
Transdisciplinary research into the data protection-conscious provision of movement data for sustainable urban mobility - recommendations for action for the design of data protection-conscious mobility applications, taking into account technological, legal and value-oriented aspects.
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...
Micromobility on sidewalks and cycle paths - Conflicts of use and effects on traffic (MMoNK)
The project examines the traffic effects and conflicts of use of the newly emerging electrically assisted means of transport as a technical innovation. This takes up a topic on which so far hardly any scientific studies exist, even though there is a great need for action in the municipalities.
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...
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: Urban Mobility Digital
Urban passenger transport and goods supply systems serve people's mobility needs and enable economic development in cities. However, traffic also has negative effects, especially in densely populated areas, such as the impairment of public health and quality of life through air pollution and noise ...
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.
