Mobility in the future

How will we move from A to B in the future? Which vehicles will transport us? Which drive technologies will take us forward? The mobility of the future raises numerous questions. Current studies show that traffic congestion in cities around the globe is increasing every year and will continue to do so.

The consequences for people and the environment

Today's traffic systems are reaching their limits. This has consequences for people and the environment: even more congestion, increased demand for parking spaces and environmental pollution are just some of the disadvantages that result. On top of this, passengers' needs and demands on service quality are increasing.
