Rail-oriented settlement development and accessibility optimisation

The project focuses on strategies for rail-oriented settlement development and accessibility optimisation at traffic stations at local and regional level. Case studies will be used to demonstrate how planning processes involving relevant actors, combinable strategies (settlement development, adaptation of the station network, adaptation of the degree of expansion and improvement of traffic links), planning instruments and methods can be used to improve the potential of the railways through active spatial planning and, conversely, how spatial development can be positively influenced by the railways as a driving force. Within the framework of the research project BahnRaum, a practice-oriented, clear and compact practical handbook for an integrated further development of settlement and railway as the backbone of sustainable development is being developed.

DrückMichi: The flexible solution for parking space management to promote equality of road users

The DrückMichi research project aims to strengthen the role of bicycles as a sustainable means of transport by improving the general conditions for bicycle parking in road space. To this end, DrückMichi uses innovative approaches to develop a new swivelling bike-bar system whose features aim to offer non-motorized road users an equal opportunity to park their vehicles in parking spaces - without permanently excluding passenger cars. This infrastructure addition is intended to investigate whether a coexistence of these modes of transport can be promoted or is desired.

Innovative measures for smoothing peak demand and efficient capacity use

Traffic demand peaks are associated with high costs in the road and public transport sector, because infrastructure and vehicle resources are designed for them. From the perspective of the transport systems users, it also leads to a loss of comfort or longer travel times that are difficult to calculate. Measures to influence the demand for transport in terms of time represent an alternative to adapting the supply of mobility services to demand.

In the future, new mobility service providers (e.g. sharing) will also be affected by capacity bottlenecks. On the other hand, Mobility as a Service and the associated digital networking between mobility services and transport demand offer new possibilities for influencing temporal or modal behavioural decisions in order to avoid congestion.

The aim of the IMaG:NE project is to collect and evaluate existing and future measures for smoothing traffic demand peaks in order to derive recommendations for policy-makers, mobility service providers and infrastructure operators.
So far, there is no comprehensive cross-sectoral and intermodal evaluation of measures to smooth peak demand. 
The inclusion of measures in the context of Mobility as a Service and the consideration of future requirements determined by means of scenario techniques underline the innovativeness of the project.

Duration 02/2021 – 04/2022

Peer-to-Peer cargo bike and parking space sharing

LARA Share aims to integrate cargo bikes more strongly into commercial and private freight transport. Within the framework of the project, the possibilities of load wheel and parking space sharing in the Vienna conurbation will be investigated in order to reduce two central inhibiting factors: the low availability of load wheels and the lack of parking possibilities in densely built-up areas. The core of the project is the analysis of the technical, organisational and legal requirements and the user needs, as well as the conception and test implementation of an online platform, which functions as an intermediary hub for providers and users of freight bikes and parking facilities.

New mobilities in post-traditional communities: Peer-to-Peer Carsharing in rural and urban neighbourhoods

Carsharing in neighbourhoods can be a promising solution not only for urban areas but also for less populated areas that are heavily dependent on individual transport. Our study aims to explore the conditions and factors that facilitate peer-to-peer (P2P) carsharing in different neighbourhoods and to identify the differences between those who use P2P carsharing and those who do not. For this purpose, three case studies are conducted. The selected neighbourhoods differ with regard to the usage activity of P2P carsharing services. Cultural differences, variations in awareness and acceptance of collaborative consumption services, diverse attitudes towards cars and geographical characteristics will also be analysed through focus groups. In addition, expert interviews with different stakeholders will provide a deeper understanding of the relationships between the factors supporting or weakening P2P carsharing.

Development of a reactive booking and tariff system for free-floating Mobility Sharing Services

Sharing models are one of the central mobility trends of the 21st century. Particularly innovative mobility sharing concepts can noticeably reduce inner-city traffic and the associated climate and environmental pollution. Free-floating systems (vehicles without fixed stations) offer good starting points, especially in connection with electric mobility. The aim of the project is therefore to improve the utilisation of free-floating mobility sharing services and to optimise the usability of the booking systems - tested with the help of the start-up goUrban. For this purpose, a concept for an innovative reactive booking and tariff system will be developed in a multi-stage, user-centred process based on tests in laboratory setting and real experiments. In connection with this, target group-specific incentives based on the "Nudge Approach" will also be developed.

Usability of public transport operating areas for sustainable city logistic

The overarching project objectives in the RemiHub project include (1) the development of new inner-city logistics areas, (2) the shortening of the last mile in the logistics chain and (3) the use of the resulting improved framework conditions for the realistic operation of a multimodal logistics chain. In order to achieve this, a temporary co-use of suitable or unused public transport areas in the context of sustainable city logistics will be investigated. This change in the last mile is associated with the expectation that the use of non-motorised transport modes and autonomous and/or electrified vehicles in inner-city last mile logistics will be realised in a sustainable manner and even that a redistribution with (rail-bound) means of public transport will be possible.

System scenarios Automated driving in personal furnishings

With the help of a multi-methodical approach in a broad and comprehensive dialogue with experts and stakeholders from politics, administration, science, industry and civil society, the aim is to develop scenarios for personal mobility that describe the transport system while anticipating the possibilities and developments in the field of automated driving. Based on these scenarios, traffic-relevant impact spectra will be estimated and quantified. The aim is to derive the requirements and necessities for various policy areas (FTI, transport, spatial planning, etc.) and concrete further measures.

Tactical Mobilism - Interventions for a Sustainable Mobility Culture

The Project Tactical Mobilism aims to establish time-limited, simple and cost-effective interventions for the transformation of mobility spaces. The participatory development of interventions in public spaces opens up new perspectives, leads to a rethinking of the actors and can trigger a long-term change in mobility culture. The city of Villach is the ideal pilot city and multiplier. Central innovation is the gradual, adaptive and flexible testing of interventions, participation through community organizing in the real laboratory and the transfer from the pilot city of Villach to other medium-sized cities.
