Research for Sustainable Mobility—Fleets Go Green
Mobility is fundamental for trade and business, for science, culture and everyday life of people. An efficient transport system enables economic growth, promotes social exchange, creates more freedom and independence for each individual and thus makes a significant contribution to the quality of life. The planning and design of future mobility is associated with a multitude of fundamental challenges. Megatrends such as individualization tendencies, urbanization and aging of societies have a strong influence on future mobility concepts. In addition, technological developments like eco-efficient lightweight structures, electrification and digitalization and, last but not least, new business models on product-service systems and sharing economy lead to new vehicle and mobility concepts.
