The mobility of people and goods is a central foundation of our modern society with increasingly global and diversely networked processes. It enables an efficient economy and represents a valuable asset that must be preserved and further developed. Mobility, especially with regard to road mobility and to road traffic, is currently confronted with global challenges, which urgently require fundamental solutions.

In the planned SFB/TRR 339, a spatially as well as temporally multidimensional, model of vehicle, tire and road surface (concrete and asphalt) will be developed and researched, taking into account the road pavements. The model combines all available and relevant information about the "road of the future" system from physical investigations and modeling as well as from informational and traffic-related data (sensor data, data models etc.). The approach enables and requires the interaction between the physical-engineering and the informational-traffic design levels. This interactive model in space and time is referred to as the digital twin of the road, subject to analysis, control and prediction of the physical road by means of common interfaces.
