Optimal solutions for mobility networks

The traffic of the future consists of networked systems in which data analysis and intelligent control are an integral part. Such systems are complex. Their planning and control requires the use of data-driven methods of artificial intelligence. This also holds for many new technologies such as free flight or electromobility, which thus reinforce this trend.

The MobilityLab is driving these innovations by developing efficient solution methods for mathematical key problems. The general approach is the identification and exploitation of specific problem structures that ideally transfer to other applications, even outside of the area of traffic optimization.

The MobilityLab is working on three projects with leading industrial partners: with Lufthansa Systems the planning of free flight aircraft routes, with LBW Optimization the scheduling of electric buses, and with Ab Ovo the logistics of air freight.
