to identify suitable framework conditions from a societal point of view,
to promote the implementation of mobility solutions and technologies,
… in Digitalisation and Automation in transport and mobility system.
The professorship and its research group will carry out research on the user needs and societal impacts of digitalised and automated mobility as a crucial factor influencing the market penetration of these technologies.
Building on this knowledge, the group shall adjust and/or develop existing planning methods and models that enable the development and assessment of policy measures and developments in digitisation and automation. These form the basis for recommendations for solutions to set framework conditions for digital and automated mobility that ensure the achievement of sustainability goals.
