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.

A high-tech chassis for the train of the future

In the Providentia++ project, researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have worked with industry partners to develop a technology to complement the vehicle perspective based on onboard sensor input with a bird’s-eye view of traffic conditions. This improves road safety – also for autonomous driving.

EPFL researchers have used swarms of drones to measure city traffic with unprecedented accuracy and precision. Algorithms are then used to identify sources of traffic jams and recommend solutions to alleviate traffic problems.

Monitoring city mobility from the skies

As the University Technology Exposure Program 2022 enters its final month, we continue to receive submissions spanning different domains of technology. Submissions published in June included articles related to healthcare, electric vehicles, data analytics, smart cities, and smart manufacturing.

University Technology Exposure Program 2022: June Update

Article #1 Simulation Education Series. How engineers can use cutting-edge simulation software to design out-of-this-world machinery and transport solutions.

Using heat transfer simulation to engineer a rocket-launching balloon

In this episode, we talk about how researchers plan to orchestrate the movement of a fleet of cars in real-time to avoid or minimize waiting periods at stoplights and how off-road navigation is being tackled in a way that’ll make your car understand the dynamics of its surroundings like a human.

Podcast: Off-roading & Ending Stoplights With Autonomous Cars

Researchers use artificial intelligence to help autonomous vehicles avoid idling at red lights.

On the road to cleaner, greener, and faster driving

Local governments and policymakers are anxious about the U.S. grid’s ability to withstand ever-increasing demand. Consumers could hold the key to an untapped resource.

How Electric Vehicles Could Fix the Electrical Grid

The second month of UTEP 2022 concluded recently. This month’s articles included three submissions related to renewable energy, two each related to transportation tech and drones and others related to space tech and additive manufacturing.

University Technology Exposure Program 2022: March Update

Engineers have tremendous leverage in humanity's race to curb the most disastrous impacts of climate change. Massless offers a framework to accelerate innovation and decelerate climate change at the same time.
