About the lab

The Smart Mobility Lab (SML) at DTU aims to be a hub for innovation-oriented research, an entry point for the public and private sector for all projects that involve smart mobility challenges. 

SML is structured as an interdepartmental hub for Innovation-based research in mobility.

The range of applications considered spans the full spectrum of Transportation research and practice, including active modes (cycling and walking), public transport, shared modes, autonomous mobility, freight, safety, private traffic, highways, and urban roads.

SML aims to focus on high impact on urban mobility, for example combining new data and algorithms to help traffic flow faster, detect (potential) problems and offer mitigation options, better inform citizens or decision makers, help understand impacts and explore opportunities of upcoming technologies.

Our typical projects will likely involve some component of a new technology (e.g. autonomous mobility, V2X communication, Big Data), transport engineering tools (e.g. behaviour modelling, network modelling), and potentially new methodology coming from a different area (e.g. internet of things, machine learning or network science).

Thus, SML is truly interdisciplinary, thus will only strive if being interdepartmental in nature. SML should become an entry point for research-based consultancy on advanced technologies.
