Objectives After passing this course successfully, students are able to specify intelligent technologies and applications for a vehicular environment and their fundamental design principles. They are able to assess traffic data collection methods on the basis of appropriate technology and specific use cases, to analyze mobility problems and to design technical / social / behavioral solutions. They are familiar with the methods and concepts of data acquisition and analysis, know the concepts of communication technologies and automation in the field of transport and they are familiar with the methods of the “Physical Internet” for sustainable transport. Students are able to apply computer software tools to plan, design, and operate transportation systems and to evaluate different technologies.
Subject This module provides insights into the field of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) as the application of information technology, sensors and communication technology in transport applications. Factors like green public spaces, in coalition with high safety and security foster the investigation of transportation systems for a sustainable and environmental benefit. In this context, smart, connected mobility can reduce not only traffic congestion and carbon emissions but also enhance road safety- related issues. Furthermore, this module gives an overview of the impact of digital technologies on transportation as well as insights into the field of simulation to perform experimental studies, testing of new technologies and demonstrate present and future scenarios.
