Transport is an essential part of our society. Whether it’s driving to work in the car, cycling to the supermarket, or having a package delivered at home, we all use transport on a daily basis. However, we also face the disadvantages of transport every day, in the form of traffic jams, accidents and environmental pollution.
In order to gain a better understanding of how these problems arise, and how we can solve them, research is conducted in a variety of different areas, ranging from the technology of vehicle design to the psychology of car driving. By combining knowledge from all these fields, we can develop solutions that result in safer, cleaner and more efficient transport and improved accessibility.
Under the heading TU Delft Transport Institute, researchers and students from different backgrounds at TU Delft are working together to identify the solutions.
