Electromobility in Dresden

The EmiD project, coordinated by the Fraunhofer IVI, aimed at identifying obstacles regarding the use of electric vehicles and overcoming them by the application of appropriate measures. The basis for this was the acquisition of data on a broad scientific basis, which was followed by detailed analyses and prototypical implementations of concepts for electromobility. Results of the project work, which received support from the funding program »Schaufenster Bayern-Sachsen: ELEKTROMOBILITÄT VERBINDET«, include an intelligent booking system for electric vehicles, an on-board unit as well as an inductive charging system. 


Gemeinschaftlich-e-Mobilität (Shared e-Mobility): Vehicles, Data and Infrastructure

In the electromobile future, the inhabitants of cities will use the majority of all vehicles and infrastructure in a collaborative way. This is the vision of the Fraunhofer researchers working on the GeMo project. Their aim is to make their vision come true by developing technological solutions for the shared use of resources for mobility.



Navigation in Public Transport with a Modular Service Architecture for Integration in External Applications

The objective of the collaborative project NADINE was the development of a door-to-door navigation in public transport which is universal, transferable in area and content as well as fare-sensitive. In addition to the public transport network, interchanges and access to and from the stations have been taken into consideration. Together with 5 partners, the Fraunhofer IVI developed this intermodal routing system, which seamlessly connects public routes and pedestrian navigation. Thanks to the system's open service architecture, the software can be used by third-party applications and supports the integration of a smartphone ticketing service.

SMART-WAY Public Transport Navigation System

Mobile Public Transport Navigation

Mobile Information services for public transport already exist in many regions. These, however, often merely provide information about stops and connections. The SMART-WAY app, on the other hand, allows the users for the first time to navigate the public transport network the way they are used to from car navigation systems. The mobile companion always leads them on the fastest way to their destination, even in unknown transport networks.


Schedule Information via SMS

Fahrplan.SMS provides current schedule information for a city and/or a larger transport district. Within a simple SMS dialog, customers can request information about the next departures from a certain stop and about the best connection between two stops. It is also possible to obtain information about connections in the future.


Innovative Traffic Management Network

The MOSAIQUE project's aim was to establish an efficient traffic management system in the Central Germany region. Further aims were to improve the quality of traffic flow, to provide better information for the traffic participants and to optimize the underlying processes. The innovative methods developed were demonstrated in the traffic corridor Leipzig-Halle.


Connecting Long and Short Distance Networks for Efficient Transport

Our current transport system is not yet able to realize its full potential regarding energy efficiency, safety and environmental demands. The interfaces between short-distance and long-distance networks often prove to be trouble spots for passengers and freight. Within the CLOSER project, innovative analysis tools were developed for these interfaces and specific recommendations for stakeholders were given.

Weather Extremes

Impacts on Transport Systems and Hazards for European Regions

As a consequence of the climate change, extreme weather conditions will be more frequent and more extreme in the future. Therefore, the WEATHER project's aim was to analyze the costs that arise within European transport systems due to climate change and to develop concepts for reducing these costs through sustainable policies.
