Prof Fritz Busch

Dr.-Ing. Fritz Busch is elected full professor and director of the chair for traffic engineering and control at Technical University of Munich (TUM).
In his research with his team of around 25 scientists he currently concentrates on data fusion, traffic modeling and control for private and public transport and on new safety and efficiency related applications based on car-to-x communication and connected mobility. In addition, he founded a new research group on sustainability of transport to investigate this interdisciplinary research field in more detail. In teaching he covers the full classical curriculum of transportation for civil engineers and he undertakes to set up new offers of education in the domain of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), like e.g. two new international M.Sc. programs at TUM and at TUM-Asia in Singapore. In addition he is initiator and president of the international academic network ITS-EduNet for professional training and education in ITS.
Before taking over responsibility in academia in 2003, Fritz Busch spent 13 years at Siemens ITS, with his last 4-years position being member of the board and vice president for international products and systems marketing of intelligent transport systems, and before that being responsible for Siemens’ industrial research in traffic control and advanced traffic management.
Before this, he worked 4 years as a consulting engineer in the transportation and automotive field, being in charge of traffic signal control solutions for cities and later for system architectures work within the European milestone project on automotive research, PROMETHEUS.
Professor Busch is internationally recognized as an expert in application oriented transportation modeling and intelligent transport systems. He has published his research in around 150 articles as author and/or co-author as well as by numerous public presentations. He received the highest German award in transportation, is head of the national ITS-committee of the German Road Transport Research Association, is member of the scientific advisory board of the Federal Highway Research Institute and serves as delegate to several national and international committees like e.g. the World Road Association PIARC.
