The mission statement for the TEM group is to perform
Research for connected and sustainable mobility
Main objective of the research of TEM is to improve transport systems to become more sustainable by connected mobility. Examples are connecting travellers by latest technology in ICT, connecting stakeholders, connecting cars, or cars and roadside traffic management systems, connecting land use and transport and connecting transport modes. The focus lies on monitoring, analyses and optimization of transport networks and of individual travel and driver behavior. Individual behavior is monitored and altered using state of the art ICT technology. The approach that is taken is multi-disciplinary and multi-objective, justified by the multi-facetted nature that sustainability has.
All research at TEM within the University of Twente is part of the Centre for Telematics and Information Technology (CTIT). On a national level it is part of the Dutch research school for Transport and Logistics, Trail. TEM hosts the knowledge centre AIDA (Applications of Integrated Driver Assistance) which was established in 2003 by TNO and the University of Twente. TEM is further member of the SRO Industrial Engineering.
