Project area Traffic

Under the overarching goal of improving the acceptance of environmentally friendly means of transport, the specialist group on New Mobility at Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences is essentially responsible for two tasks. One of the tasks is to analyse and process of traffic data in the Rhine-Main region. For this, the area of investigation is first defined. In a second step, existing data on the population and traffic is are gathered and processed. Specific attention is laid on the passenger numbers of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (Rhine-Main transport association).

Acquisition and supervision of focus groups is a further task. Prototypical applications and scenarios are to be tested with different age groups from various spatial areas in order to gain insights into the significance of design for individual mobility behavior. In coordination with the project partners, appropriate methods will be selected and prepared, to discuss subject-specific questions from the project areas of design, traffic, technology and city. The Frankfurt University of Applied Science acts as direct contact for all participants of the focus groups. Here, user specific data is collected and provided for the research project, taking into account data privacy.

The project area is headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Petra Schäfer, who is a member of the specialist group New Mobility of Faculty 1 (Architecture, Construction Engineering, Geomatics) at Frankfurt University of Applied Science (FRA UAS).
