In this episode, you will learn about the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and the specific role of Katharina Karnahl in the Institute of Transportation Systems. Katharina explains us the concept of intermodality, in which you can use seamlessly several means of transport to reach your destination. She mentions the need for connectivity of vehicles – if automated or not – to enable more fluidity in the traffic flow and reduce the emissions of vehicles.
In her vision of the perfect city, she doesn’t have to bother on how to get from A to be, about the parking space or about traffic jam. For this, she underlines the need of integration of different means of transportation (including AVs) in the public transport system so that “we have the possibility to move around smoothly, safely, with low emission and negative effect on mobility”.
