The real-world laboratory (RwL) aims to promote walking and to get residents involved. Together with the research team, pedestrians in Karlsruhe identify measures to improve walkability and develop solutions for existing problems. This is done with new digital participation instruments as well as conventional participatory processes. These ideas are implemented in real-world experiments and subsequently analysed to determine whether the desired improvements have been achieved, and which aspects (still) have to be considered. GO Karlsruhe was launched in November 2015 and is due to run until June 2019. The research project is funded by the Federal State of Baden-Württemberg.
