Whether it's jetting off on holiday, driving to work, visiting relatives, or simply going shopping, it all adds up to an entire lifetime spent on the move – on water, on land and in the air. Globalization has increased personal mobility as well as freight mobility: We eat kiwis from New Zealand, buy jeans made in China – products travel thousands of miles before they reach the consumer. Fraunhofer researchers are looking to control transportation and make it reliable, even eliminating it entirely at certain points, with the ultimate aim of managing resources sustainably. People need mobility and Fraunhofer is striving to meet these needs in a way that is compatible with humans and the environment.
