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 162 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.
