The Institute for Transport Studies (Institut für
Verkehrswesen (IfV)) at the Karlsruhe Institute
of Technology (KIT) is a part of the Faculty of
Civil Engineering, Geo and Life Sciences and
the KIT Mobility Systems Center. The institute
was founded in 1962 and is currently headed
by Prof. Dr. Peter Vortisch. The IfV addresses
all issues surrounding the transportation of
persons and goods. This ranges from planning
concepts for societies to technical transporta-
tion solutions.
IfV aims to efficiently and sustainably design
transport under consideration of all means of
transport with its interdisciplinary concept. Ba-
sic methods to this end range from analytical
approaches to complex simulations. Our key
areas of research are:
Empirical mobility research
Analysis of individual behaviour displayed while
undertaking various activities and their asso-
ciated required means of mobility, and the re-
search of their effects and causes
Transportation planning
Development of microscopic models of trans-
portation demand to demonstrate effects of
future conditions (for example, demographics,
available means of transportation, e-mobility)
on traffic
Traffic engineering and telematics
Modelling and simulation of traffic flow and
control based on a broad range of measure-
ment data (video, counting boards, radar, li-
cence plate number recording)
