Research Training Group

[Translate to English:]

SocialCars - Cooperative, (de)centralized traffic management

The key emphasis of the interdisciplinary Research Training Group 1931 "SocialCars - Cooperative, (de)centralized traffic management" is on the qualification of doctoral researchers within the framework of a focused research programme and a structured training strategy.


The overall objective of the SocialCars Research Training Group is to investigate new methods and applications of cooperative traffic management that are enabled by including new technological trends and developments such as Car-to-X communication or automated driving.

The focus of the second funding period of SocialCars is on addressing challenges that arise when considering the implications of automated mixed traffic scenarios and novel mobility services for dynamic traffic management. Here, the core question is how the interplay of local and global (city-wide) control and coordination strategies should be designed to ensure sustainable, safe, and efficient urban traffic.
