Our core research area Mobility envisions a seamless multimodal system of individualized mobility and transportation. At TU Braunschweig, we are working covering everything from automotive to aerospace and rail technology. Major research topics include intelligent and interconnected mobility, low-emission vehicles using non-fossil energies, and sustainable production. In addition, traffic management, logistics, and social impacts are addressed. Thus, research in the core area Mobility spans mechanical and electrical engineering, informatics, urban planning and civil engineering, and natural sciences as well as social and economic sciences, and research on gender and diversities.
Together with scientists around the world, TU Braunschweig aims at reducing the number of traffic accidents. We develop novel materials and innovative surfaces that help reduce fuel consumption and noise, and we explore the next generation energy sources.
Interdisciplinary research is tied together in the NFL - Aeronautics Research Centre Niedersachsen and NFF - Automotive Research Centre Niedersachsen. Key areas of production technology for mobility applications offer a capable laboratory infrastructure: The Open Hybrid LabFactory OHLF focusses on research into production technologies for lightweight designs with hybrid materials. The Battery LabFactory Braunschweig BLB develops high-performance batteries for mobility applications.
