Mobility is a basic human need and a cornerstone of the economy. However, global challenges such as climate change, a depletion of raw materials, an increase in transport volume and urbanisation are forcing us to take a fundamentally different approach. Mobility, for instance, has to meet three key requirements: safety, efficiency and environmental sustainability. The way we respond to these challenges has to be factored into every level of the mobility system: from vehicle and infrastructure to transport system.

Thanks to a staff of approx. 140 people and an integrated approach, the Mobility Department is able to cover those areas of research which are integral to a holistic view of the mobility system. This pool of expertise enables us to address a wide range of emerging topics.

  • Improving transport infrastructure in terms of increased safety and cost-efficiency in the context of operation and maintenance,
  • the optimisation of co-modal transport systems, which encompass all forms of transport (pedestrian, individual and public transport), as well as
  • the development of integrated vehicle concepts featuring electric drive concepts and lightweight construction technologies, both of which are key technologies, are at the heart of our research activities.

Emerging technologies are a crucial part of future innovations. By focusing on these, we help our clients to develop business models and, ultimately, to bring their innovations successfully to market.

In every area the focus is on the development of models, algorithms and numerical simulations, enabling us to map complex systems and interdependencies in the virtual realm and to develop new approaches.
