How do we move?

The Institute for Transport Studies (Institut für Verkehrswesen (IfV)) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is a part of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Geo and Life Sciences and the KIT Mobility Systems Center. The institute was founded in 1962 and is currently headed by Prof. Dr. Peter Vortisch. The IfV addresses all issues surrounding the transportation of persons and goods. This ranges from planning concepts for societies to technical transportation solutions. IfV aims to efficiently and sustainably design transport under consideration of all means of transport with its interdisciplinary concept. Basic methods to this end range from analytical approaches to complex simulations. Our key areas of research are: Empirical mobility research Analysis of individual behaviour displayed while undertaking various activities and their associated required means of mobility, and the research of their effects and causes Transportation planning Development of microscopic models of transportation demand to demonstrate effects of future conditions (for example, demographics, available means of transportation, e-mobility) on traffic Traffic engineering and telematics Modelling and simulation of traffic flow and control based on a broad range of measurement data (video, counting boards, radar, licence plate number recording).
