Niklas Forchhammer holds both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science in Industrial Design. He completed his undergraduate studies at OTH Regensburg and continued his education at the Technical University of Munich, where he received his Master of Science in May 2018. Together with DAM, he designs Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) and related infrastructures for future public transport. Not only does he focus on the putative advantages of automation, he also considers the challenges people might face with such technologies.


Guided by a holistic design approach, Niklas strives to develop useful, comfortable and elegant solutions for public transport with the employment of a wide range of design tools from physical prototypes to Virtual Reality. His ultimate goal is to provide a positive travel experience for all commuters which therefore leads to a better quality of life for the inhabitants of future cities.


Niklas works in the Design for Autonomous Mobility group. He generates ideas and design concepts regarding the architectural infrastructure and all its components for TUMCREATE’s mobility system.
