Heidelberger Jahrbücher Online: Bd. 3: Perspektiven der Mobilität

Mobility is an issue of fundamental relevance for mankind, starting with the daily mobility for working, continuing with recurring forms of mobility (like holiday trips, migration from birds and from humans) and not finishing with expatriates (humans as well as plants or animals). Different instruments for mobility (bike, car, plane, elevator, segway) are an issue as well as the question of how to adapt in case of temporary or permanent immobility. Exoskeletons might be helpful in cases of reduced mobility due to higher age. In their recent edition, psychologist Joachim Funke and biologist Michael Wink have selected interesting contributions from the whole field of the comprehensive Heidelberg university. Eight authors from different disciplines present their perspective on mobility.
