Harry Lahrmann

The division is organized in 3 research groups

The majority of the scientific work in TRG is conducted within traffic safety and intelligent transportation systems (ITS). In recent years freight transport has also been a growing focus area.

Some of the target areas in traffic safety are:

  • New approaches for designating dangerous parts of the road network
  • Studies of effects from various passive initiatives on traffic safety
  • Use of ITS to improve higher traffic safety.

Selected target areas in ITS are:

  • Use of date from moving vehicles called Floating Car Date for analysis for traffic management and -services
  • Bluetooth for detecting traffic flow
  • Environmentally friendly driving

Division of Transportation Engineering provides research based teaching for a number of study programmes at Aalborg University with traffic and roads as the primary or the secondary aim of the individual programme.

Division of Transportation Engineering also host the conference ‘Trafikdage' at Aalborg University every year in August. The conference has been held since 1994 and is Denmark’s largest scientific traffic conference. Approximately 300 participants from all of Scandinavia participate each year.
