41692: Traffic Engineer, Computer Scientist, Mathematician or similar - Organizational Principles and Control Algorithms for Coordinated Cooperative Urban Traffic

German Aerospace Center (DLR)

Braunschweig, Germany

Work group:

Institute of Transportation Systems

Area of research:

PHD Thesis

Job description:

Some 170 scientists – engineers, psychologists and computer scientists – work at the Institute of Transportation Systems in Braunschweig and Berlin. They carry out research and development for automotive, railway and traffic management systems.

Join us in shaping the future of connected mobility in transport 5.0 by helping to master the complexity of transport systems and their increasing interconnection. As a result of increasing digitalization, new and fully integrated traffic systems and system networks are emerging from the infrastructure, vehicle and passenger, which up to now have operated in isolation and independently of each other. Here there is the potential to make transport more efficient, environmentally friendly and safer through new organisational principles and methods.

Our team develops novel methods and algorithms for communication and organization between road users and vehicle systems. The focus is on the progress from assisted and highly automated traffic to automated, connected traffic, which combines the individual automation of individual modes of transport with comprehensive traffic management to form a cooperative overall traffic system.

We are looking for a motivated research associate for a doctorate in the following subject area:

Self-organizing organizational principles and control algorithms for coordinated cooperative urban transport through local cooperation without infrastructure coordination and their integration into a cooperative overall transport system.

You will support our national and international project partners in industry and science. We offer you a stimulating research environment, space for your own ideas and international visibility. The remuneration is based on DLR doctorate guidelines.

Please apply via recruiter’s website.
