An aerospace institute researches on transport applications? – Yes! Because many questions and technologies can be transferred: In transport applications, too, the interaction between society’s mobility demands and the effects of mobility on the environment is very challenging, because mobility has to be ensured, the environmental protection standards have to be maintained and safety has to be further improved..

The business area “Transport“ transfers the institute’s expertise gained in the aerospace research to the roads and the railways. To this end, it clusters all research activities with a focus on ground transport vehicles operating on land and waterways. Here, intelligent lightweight construction plays a key role.

In the interdisciplinary business area “Transport”, the institute’s various research areas, ranging from efficient simulation methods and low-cost production processes to the testing of integrated systems, interact with each other to shape the environmentally friendly and safe mobility of tomorrow.
