The representatives of Korea's leading institute for mobility were particularly impressed by the breadth, depth and quality of the research at the KIT. During the one-day visit a great interest in cooperation with the KIT became clear.

In addition to the presentation of selected research by the Institute for Transport Studies and the Institute of Measurement and Control Systems (MRT), the program also included insights into the research of the Institute for Technology Assessment and System Analysis (ITAS) on the subject of "Mobility Futures", which deals with the social aspects of autonomous mobility. 

This was followed by a visit to the Testfeld für autonomes Fahren TAF-BW and the KIT Mobility Systems Center, accompanied by scientists from the Institute for Vehicle Systems Technology and the research partner FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik.

As the official research institution for the Republic of Korea, KOTI offers recommendations and alternatives for national traffic policy and the optimization of traffic management. Research focuses include autonomous driving systems, mobility transformation and logistics.
