Sustainable digitalization: How can we shape the digital transformation?

Can digitalization help save resources and energy? How will we move through the smart city in the future? Networked mobility and highly automated driving, for example, offer a number of opportunities to achieve sustainability, reduce pollutant emissions in the short term and save resources.

Fraunhofer FOKUS is researching these topics and will open one of its showrooms to visitors during Berlin Science Week. In the “Smart Mobility Lab” visitors will get an insight into automotive driving of the future. You can experience various driving scenarios in a realistic car cockpit. As in a real automated vehicle, the steering wheel in the simulator rotates independently while the user drives through a virtual 3D world projected onto a large screen. However, it is also possible to simulate dense collisions, system errors or hacker attacks.

One of the central building blocks for future mobility is the networking of vehicles with other vehicles, with traffic management centers, traffic lights, local public transport, pedestrians, etc. The showroom will also showcase the latest developments in the field of traffic management with a model of a city street situation with traffic lights and intersections. It will be shown how, for example, automated delivery vehicles can be used to direct and direct the delivery traffic, which is increasing rapidly in inner cities, by parcel services.
