Dr.-Ing. Matthias Pfriem worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Vehicle System Technology at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) from 2010 to 2015 to conduct the scientific analysis of three field operational tests with hybrid and battery electric vehicles (BEV). His doctoral thesis gives an extensive technical analysis of the real-world usage of BEV to develop a demand-based specification for future vehicle generations.
Since 2016 he has been working at KIT as manager for a cross-organizational research cluster in the field of mobility systems. This includes the overall steering of the cluster’s research projects, strategic planning as well as the initiation of new large-scale research activities. Besides electric mobility and vehicle design, his current research interest lies in urban mobility and in the holistic understanding of the mobility system.
- June 11: regiomove: Seamless mobility – a regional approach
The Karlsruhe Mobility Research LandscapeThe talk gives a brief overview of Karlsruhe’s research into seamless mobility systems: the institutions, their fields of activity and large-scale projects. Topics investigated in a systems of systems approach range from user needs and travel demand via the systemic interaction of traffic participants and infrastructure up to technology development in fields like automation and alternative propulsion systems (e.g. regenerative fuels and electric mobility). This sets the base for further enhancements of approaches like regiomove towards seamless mobility.
