Forschungsgruppen

Der Lehrstuhl für Vernetzte Verkehrssysteme teilt sich in vier Forschungsfelder ein, je mit ihrem eigenen Fokus, Werkzeugen, und Personal.

This research group focuses on human factors, their impacts on transport, and their interactions within different aspects of the transportation industry.

Key areas of investigation:

  • Driving behavior (driving simulation, naturalistic driving) 
  • Travel behavior (gender impact, socio-demographics) 
  • Survey design 
  • Acceptance of disruptive transport technologies (e.g., UAM, Hyperloop) 
  • User experience evaluation, including comfort assessment in different transportation modes 
  • Behavior modeling for transportation planning and policy

The focus is on the use of publicly available datasets for transport analytics and modeling. Due to the availability of diverse datasets, this group has a wide coverage of topics such as travel demand, traffic behavior, transport supply, traffic safety.

Key areas of investigation:

  • Demand calibration using opportunistic/big data
  • Extracting trip attributes from opportunistic sources
  • Extracting mobility information from Social Media data
  • Data fusion for transportation modelling using opportunistic data
  • Traffic behavior modeling and safety analysis using naturalistic driving data
  • Transport supply modeling using OSM and GTFS data
