The investigation „INCOM-F“ identified the interfaces per se and subsequently (industry-) specific RTI competencies at the respective interfaces between the transport of goods and logistics in austria.
Combined transport (CT) is an environmentally sensible and politically desired traffic, which is struggling with cost problems due to complicated supply chains. The intention of this study includes a redesign of the transport and business processes, the compatibility of interfaces (with orientation towards homogenization and standardization) for the individual actors and an adapted technological development of intermodal transport containers (containers, SAL, WAB).
CinderRailer – Network of polygonal transport for the combination of slag and gypsum transport with the same containers
The project involved developing innovative logistics chains in rail transport for bulk goods such as granulated slag, gypsum, gravel and substitute fuels, which has previously ruled out the use of the same equipment.
RAKO-Donaukanal analyses how urban freight transport can be organsised in a sustainable way by using a combination of urban waterways and cargo bikes. A boat is used to transport goods along the Donaukanal into the city centre and cargo bikes take over the last mile distribution.
An intensive discussion about freight transport in cities is ongoing since the 1980ies. The originally chosen city logistic approaches investigated and propagated isolated transport consolidations within freight transport centres. Today, solutions have to focus on a much wider approach. GöMoS takes this into consideration.
EFLOG - Potential of the services of new vehicle technologies to impact on the offerings of logistics service providers
The purpose of the study was to link the performance obtained from respective drive technologies, which are in various stages of their technological development up to ready-to-use models, of utility vehicles to the services offered by logistics providers and freight carriers to their customers.
AIDA-F - Potential of interdisciplinary approaches for organizational innovations in freight transport
Starting out from the programme goals and specified logistic trends the AIDA-F study aimed to identify possible approaches in order to activate potential for interdisciplinary interactions and to anticipate their importance for tommorrow´s goods transport. To this end, it carved out the areas of intervention for organisational innovation: adapting the system architecture of goods mobility, smart use of technologies and integral methods of recording, analysing and optimising freight movements.
The main aim in the project NAHTRANSPORT is to develop a system for non-motorized transport of goods and the associated creation of suitable components, for optimization of last-mile transport of goods to the customers homes.
The aim of the project was to develop company-specific roadmaps dealing with the topic „Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies". These documents provide detailed information for the three research-pillars, research, demonstration and energy, which were subdivided in a short-time (until 2015) and a mid-time timeline (until 2020).
The project EKOK aimed to develop procedures and unconventional system-solutions for heating and air-conditioning installations in the field of rail vehicles, which should reach the optimum regarding energy efficiency and comfort for the passengers.
HyDie, Dual-Fuel-Bus - Hydrogen-Diesel Dual fuel drive for fast reduction of CO² emissions in public transport
In an 18-month research project an effective conversion of an urban-bus typical diesel engine to the hydrogen-diesel dual-fuel operation was, for the first time worldwide, analyzed. Among other parameters, the CO² reduction potential (based on the substitution of the diesel fuel with hydrogen), the diesel-combustion-typical pollutants emission reduction, and powertrain‘s efficiency were measured in order to evaluate the advantages of this technology.
Project target is the development and construction of a high efficient and low cost serial hybrid system for mass production application in passenger vehicles.
CNGDiesel – Development of natural gas diesel Dual-fuel combustion engine in order to reduce CO² reduction for passenger car propulsion
The tenor of the project is the development of a CO²-optimal gas-diesel dual-fuel combustion process based on a passenger car diesel engine taking into account the global emissions legislation. Thereby, the aim was to realise CO² savings of up to 25% w without worsening the characteristics regarding emissions and acoustics.
Traffic behaviour as much as the choice of transport mode, are already formed in the early childhood by the social environment. Here, the caregivers inherit a significant role model function. Especially every-day routes like those from or to kindergarten, to school and to leisure time activities influence the approach to mobility and the actual traffic behaviour.
The project´s long-term goal is the development of a user-oriented, residential location based mobility service for urban areas. The aim of the probing project is to support multimodal transport choices already at the place of living. As such, location and resident based mobility services have to be bundled, easy to use and communicated consistently. New models have to be developed in order to interconnect planning, construction and operation of different mobility services with projects on the level of housing and urban districts.
The MobLab Study supports the exploration of emerging urban mobility laboratories in Austria, in order to reduce the gap between the research results of the rigid environment of a laboratory and the implementation practice by offering a targeted accompanying of new Living Labs as user centred innovation settings as well as an evaluation of the gained insights.
SynArea – Synergetic area coverage by public transport and low-threshold short trip-private transport
The aim of the project is the coverage of rural and/or suburban regions with multimodal services, which are more attractive for customers and economically more efficient than conventional public transport, accessed by walking, bike&ride or park&ride, and at the same time ecologically and socially more sustainable, than the sole use of motorised individual traffic.
In pro:motion, methods from social sciences were applied in order to identify homogeneous groups of shared mobility-related information needs and to extract appropriate group-related arguments, concerning e.g. health, environment, costs, image, adventure, in order to create incentives for active mobility.
WIFAS – The Assessment of social impacts of funding programmes that support research in the mobility of people and goods
The aim of this study is to develop a conceptually and empirically sound model to capture the social effects and/or impacts caused by subsidy programmes –Thus, by working out appropriated indicators and by conceiving a rating system which is suitable for the analysis of a variety of impact dimensions, with special emphasis on ecological effects.
The project “Querdenken quer denken” (Creative Thinking on Crazy Ideas) included, besides a scientific support for the projects that received the support in the currently open call for person’s mobility, an analysis of whether and to what extent existing financial instruments considered ideas, concepts, and implementation as well as perspectives that reach beyond the borders of specialized disciplines.
