This professorship and research group sponsorship project aims at strengthening the competitiveness and knowledge building in the field of “digitalisation and automation in the transport and mobility system” to support a sustainable development of these new technologies and services in their respective regions.
The professorship and its research group will carry out research of the user needs and societal impacts for digitalised and automated mobility as a crucial factor influencing the market penetration of these technologies. Building on this knowledge, the group shall develop and adapt 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.
With the expected outputs of this project includes (1) Creating of a knowledge base through a holistic analysis of expected impacts, (2) Development of new methods or models for the analysis of transport policy and mobility management measures, and (3) Evaluations of proposed solutions to set framework conditions towards sustainable development.
The work will cover urban and rural areas. It will starts from users’ perspectives and needs, and will be extended to system (environment and societal) level analysis, higher level of policy making level processes and stakeholders interactions.
