The Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen
The NFF is one of the largest and most modern centres for mobility research at any German university and focuses on promising future-orientedtopics in vehicle and traffic research. As an interdisciplinary center, the NFF was founded in 2007 with the support of the state government of Lower Saxony and Volkswagen AG in order to establish the research region Braunschweig as a top location in vehicle technology with international rank. The result was an effective cooperation platform for joint research of industry and science with locations at the MobileLifeCampus in Wolfsburg and at the research airport in Braunschweig.
From the existing social, environmental and economic requirements for the development of vehicle-related technologies and usage models, the NFF has developed the vision of Sustainable Mobility. It will be implemented in five scientific research fields (Intelligent Vehicle and Connected Driving, Low-Emission Vehicle, Flexible Vehicle Concepts and Vehicle Production, Mobility Management and Logistics, Electromobility) and will sustainably ensure the individual mobility needs in metropolitan areas:
- Intelligent Vehicles and Conntected Driving
- Low-emission Vehicles
- Flexible Vehicle Concepts and Vehicle Production
- Mobility Management and Logistics
