The Institute of Transportation and Urban Engineering is pleased to announce that we are seeking for applications for a Doctoral Researcher/Ph.D. Student joining the interdisciplinary Research Training Group (RTG) “SocialCars – Cooperative, (de)centralized traffic management”. The doctoral research study is placed in the field of sustainable cooperative traffic management for urban environments.
The overall objective of the SocialCars Research Training Group (RTG) is to investigate new methods and applications of cooperative traffic management that are enabled by including new technological trends and developments such as Car-to-X communication or automated driving. SocialCars focuses on the interplay of centralized management in the sense of classical traffic control, and decentralized management in the sense of the local goals of individual traffic participants.
