TUM-VT at IAA in Munich 2021

The Chair of Traffic Engineering and Control of the Technical University of Munich (TUM-VT) is represented at the IAA MOBILITY with several programs.  As part of the Citizens Lab in Munich downtown, we have our own booth on Marienplatz together with other chairs of the univerity. Many current TUM research projects will be presented there. Among other things, visitors will be able to drive through a virtual city on the bicycle simulator and a novel collision warning system for cyclists can be tested.

Our Professor Dr.-Ing. Klaus Bogenberger will participate in three major events during the IAA Mobility. On Wednesday (08.09.2021), he will participate in an event of the ifo institute on the topic of city tolls (11:00-12:00), followed by the discussion round "Who needs the traffic turnaround" (12:30-15:00) at the Siemens headquarters on Wittelsbacherplatz. On the following Thursday (09.08.2021, 16:00-17:30), he will join Munich's mayor Dieter Reiter and representatives of BMW in a panel discussion organized by the Arbeitskreis Gymnasium und Wirtschaft e.V. (AGW) on student projects at Munich's Marienplatz.

At the exhibition center in Riem, the Chair of Transportation Technology at TUM (TUM-VT) is represented at two booths. In hall B1/D20 TUM-VT presents the project "@CITY" and "@CITY-AF" at the booth of the BMWi. Here, TUM-VT participates with research on Automated Vehicles, interaction with vulnarable road users, driving behavior and bicycle simulator studies. At booth B1/ E50, the project "SERVUS - Safe and Efficient Cargo Bicycles for Urban Traffic" - will also be presented. Among other things, videos of cargo bike rides can be seen there.

TUM-VT is also represented at the mobility congress of Munich, which is taking place at the same time. There, the TEMPUS project will be presented in addition to the activities in the Citizens Lab. Our colleague Martin Margreiter will give a presentation as part of the panel discussion "Future of mobility - The administration makes it possible". This will take place on 09.09.2021, 9.30 to 11.30 at the Transport Museum in Munich.

In addition, our rickshaw, which was developed as part of the Ride-Parcel-Pooling sub-project of TEMPUS, will be on the road between the individual events during the week of the IAA (07.-12.09.2021) in Munich. The drivers will take a survey, of which the results will form the input for future traffic simulations.
