VVD-M - Digitization of municipal transport systems

Project Description

 The aim of the project consortium is to build a comprehensive digital platform for Munich, with the help of which extensive measures of traffic management can be examined for their impact on compliance with immission limits, but also on the quality of accessibility and mobility in the city. Aspects of improved data collection and the inclusion of all modes of transport play a crucial role in identifying effective traffic planning and control measures for cities by means of simulations - in particular in order to achieve a medium-term and sustainable reduction of NO2 pollution. The platform is intended to enable the participating departments of the City of Munich and the transport companies to plan, evaluate and compare short to medium-term packages of measures in accordance with the principle of "recording - planning - evaluation".

 Tasks of the Chair

The Chair of Traffic Engineering and Control of TUM is involved in the development of data sources, the processing and the collection of this data as an associated partner. In addition, the chair will be involved in the definition of use cases and field applications, which include not only bicycle traffic planning but also connected traffic systems, traffic safety as well as construction site and event management. The system architecture of the project will also be accompanied by the chair as an associated partner.
