MANEUVER - Development of avoidance measures for misconduct on railway crossings with the aid of the traffic psychology
The objective of the project was to develop cost-effective measures (education, awareness-raising, roadside infrastructure) with the help of experts and road traffic participants to reduce misdemeanour at level crossings. Traffic psychological research methods will be adopted.
OBESTO – Implementation of the user oriented and Life Cycle Costing approach in the Austrian design method for upper road structures
Within this project, performance-based material behaviour of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) was implemented in the Austrian design approach. Considering actual asphalt mechanic behaviour, as well as specific traffic loads and climatic conditions, the structural technical life time of road pavements with different bitumen, bitumen systems and mix design could be determined and considered in the design process. In addition, a standardized life-cycle cost analysis helped to evaluate and identify the economic differences between alternative pavement types. The results of this project should be the basis for a complete revision of the Austrian pavement design standard, RVS 03.08.63.
RELSKG - Developement of a simplified method of calculations for noise protection walls with complex geometry
The aim of the project was to determine correction factors for noise barriers with complex geometries to be used in the ray-tracing method based on numerical simulations with the boundary element method. The results of the simulations were validated by measurements. Complex geometries of the noise barriers included barriers with more than one refraction edge and curved geometry. The expected correction factors allow the implementation of the results in standard calculation software used in practice.
The objective of the project was to apply the EU regulations 2009/661/EC to Austrian conditions in order to find the actual feasible noise reduction, as well as suggestions of how to adapt the Austrian calculation basis.
The R&D service investigates the effects of Industry 4.0 on the transport and logistics sector both from a practical and a scientifically based perspective, taking special consideration of Austria’s external relationships. The investigation is intended to supply a suitable basis on which to elaborate different handling and strategy recommendations for RTI and transport policy.
The project RTM-O aimed the development of a capacity/management software for the digitally coordinated supply chain, from the handover point of the shipping customer to the acceptance point of the recipient.
The study eComTraf analysed the impacts of the relation between consumer needs, the offers of online retailers and the CEP (courier-express-parcel) service industry on the development of the overall transport system.
KoLaMBra – Development of an integrated organizational concept for a cooperative last- mile logistics branch
The project developed a "matching platform" for the logistics industry, i.e. a kind of partner exchange for the urban transport of goods.
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.
