Professur für Verkehrsökologie, Institut für Verkehrsplanung und Straßenverkehr der TU Dresden
The task of the professorship, according to its dedication, is to reduce the environmental impact of transport. At the TU Dresden we work primarily in the following fields:
Estimation of environmental impacts of transport: measurement and modelling of emissions of air pollutants, noise and CO2; emission factors of vehicles, driving patterns and traffic situations; energy consumption, energy flow models and cumulative energy expenditure
Monetarisation of environmental impacts: Assessment methods, monetisation approaches and internalisation measures
Conception and evaluation of measures to reduce environmental pollution: Approaches to action by various actors and levels and their implementation; cycling and pedestrian traffic, public transport and local accessibility, climate protection strategies
Mobility and coverage of needs: Which mobility needs are covered by which expenses, which are not? Mobility-related social exclusion
Awareness raising and information: development of guidelines, teaching materials, information or training concepts; sustainable transport development, transport in developing countries.
