Unprecedented opportunities and challenges shape the future of mobility of people and the transportation of cargo. New technologies including vehicle and system automation, connected driving, and electric propulsion, as well as shared-economy based, information system supported and data-driven services, pose endless possibilities. Climate challenges, energy transition, economic development, and inclusiveness ambitions challenge to create sustainable, affordable, accessible and efficient mobility and transport solutions.
Researchers at the TU Delft, collaborating within the Transport Institute, take up these challenges by conducting fundamental and applied research. They work on themes including Connected and Automated Driving, Freight Transport and Logistics, Transport Policy and Behaviour, Public Transport, Railway Systems, Active Modes, and Urban Mobility, Traffic Safety and Traffic Monitoring, Data Analysis and Modelling.
TUD-TI researchers work together with public and private partners including Amsterdam Institute of Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS), Rotterdam – Den Haag transport authority (MRDH), the municipalities of Delft, Den Haag, Rotterdam and Amsterdam, TNO, the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, Rijkswaterstaat, Port of Rotterdam, ProRail, transport companies, consultancy firms, SME, and various universities of applied sciences.
During the upcoming Tracks in Transport conference, we would like to share insights, ideas, and results of (collaborative) projects, to inspire each other and to explore pathways for applying results and for setting up new relevant and exiting research collaborations.
The event will include inspiring keynotes, interactive thematic break-out sessions, demonstrations and of course ample room for informal talks and discussions.
Save the date for the 2019 Tracks in Transport Conference on November 6 in Delft.
