The DFG Research Training Group 1931 "SocialCars – cooperative, (de)centralized traffic management" jointly hosted at Technische Universität Braunschweig, Technische Universität Clausthal and Leibniz Universität Hannover is looking to fill
SocialCars is a joint collaborative program involving six interdisciplinary research groups representing the areas of traffic planning, traffic psychology, computer science, business information systems, communications technology, and geodetic science / geo-informatics. We address challenges that arise when considering the implications of automated mixed traffic scenarios and novel mobility services for dynamic traffic management. Here, the core question is how the interplay of local and global (city-wide) control and coordination strategies should be designed to ensure sustainable, safe, and efficient urban traffic.
