Introduction of the Research Group

Our objective is to analyse and develop transport systems and mobility services as well as to facilitate community engagement. We develop novel solutions by modelling basis and information systems of transport and improve their interconnections. We focus on efficiency enhancement, travellers, and sustainability aspects; whilst approach facilitating integration of individual, shared and high-capacity public mobility services and covering the entire travel chain is applied. We pay special attention to micromobility forms and feeder services. The main principles, as the basis process of transportation and processes of organizations are followed. At the same time, we focus also on more and more intensive interconnection of vehicle and transportation sciences and engineering aspects. We establish developments regarding efficiency enhancement for operators and users as well as regarding perceived service quality. We elaborate such new theoretical and practical structures, which make the development of transport systems in long-term possible and being flexible and expandable according to the development of science, practice and infocommunication technology. Simulation tools and decision-making support models can be prepared based on our models, which support developments by quantitative results and describe the future scenarios and situations.
