Intelligent Transport Systems

Intelligent Transport Systems

The department »Intelligent Transport Systems« has successfully operated at the market for more than a decade. Having emerged from the Working Group »Intermodal Information and Control Systems« of the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Process Control, the department
has significantly shaped the Fraunhofer IVI’s research profile in transportation and traffic engineering.

The two Working Groups »Mobility and Travel Assistance« and »Ticketing and Fares« successfully realize projects in a large variety of research topics, acting in interdisciplinary teams with a broad range of skills. The staff includes computer scientists, information engineers, transportation engineers as well as automation technicians.

The department traditionally works in close partnership with the TU Dresden (University of Technology).
