Transformation of Urban Mobility

A dynamic shift in urban mobility can be identified as a result of social, spatio-structural and technological changes. New drive technologies, sharing schemes, the interlinking of different systems as well as digitisation in principle provide more sustainable mobility options; at the same time, however, motorised traffic has increasingly negative impacts on environmental and energy footprints and thus on quality of life. The implementation of a mobility transformation and achieving the national and international climate protection targets are central tasks for the future. Taking as a starting point the observation that a successful transformation towards post-fossil mobility has failed to materialise thus far, we look into the interactions between spatial and infrastructure developments and individual transport behaviour. The research aims to examine mobility as a key indicator to understand societies, to explain behavioural patterns and to map out individual decision-making processes. Our focus here is on the needs-based and energy-efficient design of (traffic-) infrastructures as well as on minimising the negative consequences for humans and the environment.
