Reallabor Digitale Mobilität Hamburg

Project Description

The project demonstrates the full spectrum of possibilities for future mobility: Digital, intermodal, automated and connected mobility solutions for urban, suburban and rural areas are evaluated along with new solutions for freight transportation. Both technological developments and models for the cooperation between cities and mobility providers are implemented in field tests and analyzed regarding their potential for a sustainable and climate-friendly transformation of mobility systems. In order to obtain results that are transferable to other cities and regions, findings from field tests, surveys and workshops will be integrated and validated by using modeling and simulation tools. Project results will be included in policy recommendations compiled by the “National Platform Future of Mobility WG 3”.

Tasks of the Chair

  • Definition of user-oriented KPIs for a mobility platform that integrates new on-demand services.
  • Analysis of the impacts of the mobility platform on mode choice behavior.
  • Evaluation of traffic impacts of new street design elements and new mobility services.
  • Estimation of resulting effects on VRU safety using microscopic traffic simulation.
  • Integration of new street design elements into the bicycle simulator and demonstration at the 2021 ITS World Congress in Hamburg.
