A new study suggests mobile data collected while traveling over bridges could help evaluate their integrity.

Can your phone tell if a bridge is in good shape?

More robust charging points and accordingly configured vehicle components are to drastically reduce charging times for heavy-duty trucks, making electric drives more attractive to freight carriers. The project's objective is to reduce battery charging time to only 15 minutes in the future.

Plans to triple charging speeds for electric trucks

As part of its Zero Emission Drive Unit – Generation 1 (ZEDU-1) project – the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and the engineering company HWA have developed and successfully tested a road vehicle that enables mobility almost entirely without emissions.

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is researching the infrastructure and railway operational framework conditions, working on new, capacity-increasing concepts for vehicles, operations and infrastructure, as well as innovative methods for maintenance and servicing.

The future of rail transport - Technologies for tomorrow

The chassis of a train is a key factor for fast, reliable, safe and comfortable rail transport. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is working on a new, chassis design for the future as part of its Next Generation Train concept, with each wheel driven individually and controlled with smart technology.
