      Group Description

      This group belongs to the Faculty of Technology, Art and Design and will research the areas of autonomous driving, micro-mobility, transport electrification, transport planning, smart infrastructure, urban informatics, space syntax, and urban science.

      Vision

      TransFrUrban is aiming to shed light on intelligent transport and smart city evolution.  

      Norway is one of the most important frontrunners in terms of autonomous driving, transport electrification, and sustainable city. 

      TransFrUrban conducts research activities that help accelerate the transformation of Norwegian cities. Moreover, our research would add value to the Nordic and global research environment.

      Research

      TransFrUrban is conducting multidisciplinary research which covers transport, infrastructure, and urban Science. 

      The group is currently running one research centre, The Research Centre of Metropolitan Digitalization and Smartization (MetSmart). 

      Moreover, the group has published at numbers of top-tier journals, such as Transportation research Part A, D, F, IEEE intelligent transportation magazine, Ocean Engineering, Journal of Transport Geography, Applied Energy, Scientific reports and so on. 

      The team is also running projects supported by several national and international.

      Social relevance

      The research group aims to benefit governmental agencies, academia, industry, and community at large. 

      Moreover, the research conducted in this group primarily supports three of the declared UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): 9 – Industries, innovation, and infrastructure, 11 – Sustainable cities and communities, and 13 – Climate action.
