DDc-scientists are cordially invited to attend this digital lunch retreat on August 24. Research group leaders and postdocs are very much welcome to join.
Mobility and transport are core prerequisites for successful societal development and economic health. At the same time, they cause major challenges in a world focussing increasingly on digital communication and sustainability. Transport research as a young and highly interdisciplinary field holds the potential for a fascinating variety of disruptive innovations both in research and practice. Today’s options of digital communication, large scale data-availability and computational analytics and modelling tools further strengthen this potential. They enable a deeper understanding of the dynamics of entire transportation systems rather than of individual vehicles, modes, infrastructure elements or human behaviours. The emerging field Automated and Networked Mobility takes this opportunity to question traditional assumptions and proposes novel mobility solutions that shall guarantee high accessibility at substantially lower societal costs by merging the physical and digital world most effectively.
