1. Multimodal travel planning: focussing timetable-dependent transport

For more than twenty years, Prof. Dr. Karsten Weihe has been cooperating with Deutsche Bahn AG on research into the field of timetable information systems. Since 2001, Prof. Dr. Weihe has been working at the University of Darmstadt with the professional consultancy of Wolfgang Sprick (datagon GmbH). Felix Gündling and Dr. Mathias Schnee, assistants of Prof. Dr. Weihe, have been working on the project which will be introduced here: multimodal travel planning. Additional current research is being undertaken in order to create travel plans which allow a high probability of arriving at the target destination on a fixed date and at a fixed time, as well as off-peak connections early in the morning or late in the evening. All these projects are financed by Deutsche Bahn. In partnership with the University of Darmstadt, datagon have started to cooperate with suppliers of other transportation systems in special aspects of intermodal mobility.
