With its Transport Program, the DLR is the second largest institutionally funded transport research body in Europe: 26 DLR institutes follow a systematic, programmatic approach. It uses networks and synergies – with national and international facilities and economic and political bodies – to develop concrete solutions for a sustainable transport system.

On the right track

31.07.2018 · Schienenfahrzeuge
Trains powered by fuel cells are emission-free and do not require overhead power lines. Travelling along non-electrified routes, they offer a sustainable alternative to diesel vehicles. Of the almost 40,000 kilometres covered by Germany‘s rail network, around 60 percent is electr...Learn more

Waiting or Parking?

05.02.2018 · Großereignis- / Katastrophenmanagement
In the VABENE++ project, traffic information is collected automatically from aerial photographs. An approach has now been developed to separate parking from queuing vehicles, thus improving the quality of the results.Learn more

Swarmtool in Action

18.01.2018 · Großereignis- / Katastrophenmanagement
VABENE++ has developed a system for an area-wide mapping of larger areas that allows the simultaneous operation of several multicopters at the same time. The Swarmtool has now been extensively tested and optimized.Learn more

Uninterruptible Data Transmission via Laser

18.01.2018 · Großereignis- / Katastrophenmanagement
In the VABENE++ project enormous amounts of data are generated during aerial photography flights. In order to be able to send them quickly and without interruptions to the ground, a hybrid link has been developed that enables transmission both by laser and radio transmission and...Learn more
