Article
Full-text available
Purpose The majority of current e-carsharing users are middle-aged men with a high education and high income; they are most likely to have a full-time employment. Women are consistently underrepresented in previous studies and therefore this paper focusses on characterization of female early adopters. It builds a basis to identify current female ea...
Poster
Full-text available
The poster describes perceived differences between battery electric vehicles and other modes of transport and groups them accordingly. Evaluating acceptance of BEVs, subjective perspectives have to be taken into account, in order to address the subgroups of potential customers appropriately. Individuals take an interest in more characteristics of m...
Article
Full-text available
Travel patterns in daily life differ greatly between women and men, and differences in socialisation substantially impact travel mode choice. The literature has demonstrated a higher affinity towards local public transportation and sustainability for women. Men, by contrast, show a higher affinity towards cars, technology, and innovation. However,...
Thesis
Full-text available
This mixed-methods research provides insights about gender preferences of urban women regarding innovative urban mobility solutions analysing the use of and the attitudes towards free-floating e-carsharing in urban areas from a gender perspective. This work provides the answer to the research question, what motivates urban women to use free-floatin...
Presentation
Full-text available
This is a summary of my PhD research: The dissertation started with the phenomenon that needed to be understood in order to close the gap in existing theories that cover gender-sensitive (sustainable and urban) mobility. Those existing theories could not explain the high share of men using innovative sustainable mobility services as many studies sh...

Article
Full-text available
The digital transformation and the new modes of transport (e.g., automated vehicles, ride hailing, car sharing, demand-responsive transport systems, and micro-mobility) offer a wide range of possibilities to improve accessibility and to promote inclusive mobility solutions addressing the needs of disadvantaged groups of population. However, as the...
Poster
This study aims for (1) characterising female early adopters, (2) identifies the attitudes towards sustainable transport of urban women in contrast to men, (3) identifies potential obstacles and advantages of free-floating car-sharing of urban women to (4) provide practical measures to promote FFECS for urban women as an additional part of multi- a...

After the successful implementation of the Young Researchers’ and Practitioners’ Forum (YRPF) in 2013, ETC 2018 will again include a special format fo...
Article
Full-text available
Women in urban areas have specific requirements for their daily mobility. Car sharing services are mostly used by men as shown in studies from different countries. This study aims for understanding specific reasons and requirements of respective trips in women’s every day live to help dismantle hurdles, which hinder women to use carsharing services...
Article
Understanding of acceptance of electric mobility has been typically discussed by a comparison of vehicles with different types of propulsion engines, battery electric vehicles and vehicles with an internal combustion engine. Nevertheless, electric mobility comprehends a combination of public transport and electric vehicles. The aim of this paper is...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Not just that there are different travel patterns in the day-to day life, but also do differences in socialization have a high impact on mode choice. Previous literature shows a higher affinity to local public transportation and sustainability for women. Men, on the other hand, show a higher affinity towards cars, technology and innovation. However...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose The aim of this paper is to provide insight into how people assess different charging options in the context of electric mobility and how charging can be integrated into daily activities. The central research question concerns the acceptance of fast charging with direct current up to 200 kWh relative to alternative charging concepts such as...

Teilbericht des Projekts E3 – Combined Charging System: Entwicklung und Demonstration von Schnellladestationen zum Arbeitspaket 6
Article
Full-text available
Electric mobility comprises a variety of transportation systems, notably the combination of public transport and electrically powered vehicles. It serves as an inherent part of future urban integrated mobility concepts. From the users’ perspective, e-mobility has so far been discussed via a comparison of cars with internal combustion engines (ICEV)...
Conference Paper
Carsharing with battery electric vehicles can help reducing urban space scarcity, local and global emissions and noise exposure. However, operating a carsharing scheme with electric vehicles is more expensive and offers users less autonomy than carsharing powered by internal combustion engines. Thus, carsharing providers need to identify and addres...

The tasks facing German child protection in the media are complex and constantly need to adapt to new aspects of the Internet. The legal position in Germany, however, is even more complex. Various laws have been simply amended in line with changes on the market. Unfortunately, this has obscured the view of the whole picture and many aspects of chil...

Project
Das Projekt verfolgt das Ziel, Maßnahmen zur Transformation städtischer Quartiere hin zu einer nachhaltigeren Mobilitätsgestaltung weiterzuentwickeln und auf Bestandsquartiere in Darmstadt und Frankfurt am Main zu übertragen. Dafür geht das Projekt den folgenden wissenschaftlichen und planungspraktischen Fragestellungen nach: (1) Welche Erkenntnisse und Maßnahmen zur Gestaltung des ruhenden Verkehrs können aus der ersten Förderphase von QuartierMobil auf weitere Bestands- und Neubauquartiere in Darmstadt und Frankfurt am Main übertragen werden, inwiefern sollten alternative Mobilitätsangebote bzw. -dienstleistungen in diese eingebunden werden und welche Schlussfolgerungen lassen sich daraus für die Transformation des urbanen Parkens aus gesamtstädtischer Perspektive ziehen? (2) Wie werden diese angedachten Transformationen von den relevanten Akteuren (z.B. lokale Bevölkerung, kommunale Akteure, Wohnungsbaugesellschaften, Gewerbetreibende usw.) in städtischen Quartieren aufgenommen und welche Hemmnisse und Chancen für die Umsetzung gibt es? (3) Welche Wirkungen lassen sich durch die angedachten Transformationen erwarten, insbesondere wenn auch sozial-räumliche Unterschiede hinsichtlich der Wahrnehmung von Problemlagen und Lösungsmöglichkeiten in Betracht gezogen werden?
Project
The aim of the project is to shed more light on the field of empirical social data collection in mobility and transport research and to scientifically demonstrate how data can be validly collected in this field without neglecting certain often unconsidered groups of people and including their realities of life. For this purpose, the data sets Mobility in Germany (MiD (Hessen) 2017) and from the Mobicor surveys will be systematically analysed in order to generate recommendations on how the data gap can be bridged and the basis for decision-making for many transport projects can be improved. (Project language is German.)

Im Rahmen des internationalen Schaufensters Elektromobilität Berlin Brandenburg entwickelt das Vorhaben „E3 – Combined Charging System: Entwicklung und Demonstration von Schnellladestationen“ kombinierte Gleichstrom-Wechselstrom-Stationen zum Laden von Elektrofahrzeugen. Diese Combined Charging Systeme werden dann an öffentlichkeitswirksamen Standorten getestet. Unter Zuhilfenahme einer adaptiven Conjoint-Analyse soll u. a. die Frage beantwortet werden, welche Präferenzen bzw. Wünsche bei der Überlegung von Autofahrern_innen bestehen, über einen Umstieg auf E-Fahrzeuge oder sogar E-Mobilität nachzudenken und welche Präferenzen maßgeblicher sind als andere. Das erwartete Ergebnis ist die Abbildung von Ausprägungen von Mobilitätskonzepten, die zu einer Verhaltensänderung anregen. Darüber hinaus ist es Ziel der Analyse, aus der Nutzer_innen-Perspektive die zukünftigen standortspezifischen Geschäftsmodelle für Schnellladekonzepte in Bezug auf die Laufleistungen, die Nutzungszeiten und die Nutzer_innengruppen unter der Voraussetzung des Schnellladens zu erforschen und zu entwickeln. Darauf aufbauend lassen sich Anpassungen an den Ladetarifen oder Anreizsystemen vornehmen/ableiten.
