German Aerospace Center (DLR) – Institute of Transportation Systems
Germany – Brunswick
Which are the organisation’s thematic competences and experiences relevant for ART-Forum?
The DLR Institute of Transportation Systems has many years of experience in scientific and applied transport research. They will contribute their expertise in transport modelling with the self-developed and open-source transport simulation software SUMO to the project.
What is the main role in ART-Forum?
DLR will contribute to the objective of engaging stakeholders in a dialogue on impacts of ART. Aside from the first order effects like travel behaviour, traffic volume/flow, DLR will pay particular attention to building knowledge on second order effects on the build environment like parking space requirements, street design and land use. DLR will contextualise this knowledge for the involved cities and participate in developing roadmaps for long-term transport and urban planning strategies.
