European Commissioner for Transport visits TIC Berlin

5th February 2015

Last week, the VMZ Berlin welcomed as the operator of the Traffic Information Centre (TIC Berlin) a prominent guest: The European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc visited with members of her cabinet the Traffic Information Centre as part of a stay in Berlin. They met up with Berlin representatives from the research field (DFKI, Fraunhofer FOKUS and DLR), startups, as well as representatives of the city of Berlin and the VMZ Berlin.

The common experience beyond boundaries of own actions allow interesting discussions on current developments of smart mobility solutions (especially mobile app, intermodality, routing, etc.). Here, the different perspectives of young startups with developments in European research projects were compared. In particular, the two EU projects Streetlife and MOLECULES moved frequently into the focus of the discussion. In both research projects the VMZ Berlin develops innovative routing applications.
