  • Visual communication to control route choice behavior
    The individual choice of transport modality and route depends on a number of factors. In particular, information about the expected traffic situation is considered important. It should therefore be examined whether the mediation of the current and the anticipated situation on site (including the indication of certain securities) leads to the choice of a different route or even a different modality.

Master Theses

  • Development of environmentally-balaced and congestion-avoiding routing algorithms by means of traffic simulation
    Due to the constantly growing volume of traffic in urban environments and the resulting problems such as increased air pollution, environmentally oriented approaches to achieve better urban sustainability of transport play an increasingly important role. This thesis deals with the development of environmentally-friendly routing algorithms and their validation in traffic simulations. The routing algorithm used is the A* - algorithm using the developed criteria as weights.
