AIDA-F - Potential of interdisciplinary approaches for organizational innovations in freight transport
An awareness of the value and benefit of taking an interdisciplinary approach to the treatment of challenges facing the Mobility of Goods has only developed to a certain extent, which is why interdisciplinary results are still hard to come by. External stimuli are usually required to open up introverted specialist debates on the phenomena that occur, to motivate a collaborative accomplishment of tasks and as such to mobilise innovation processes.

Safe Guarding - Potential of lateral road restraint systems on road safety capacity in the motor- and expressway network of the ASFiNAG
Run off accidents with personal injuries are the second most frequent type of accidents on the ASFiNAG road network. Road Restraints are an important instrument to reduce accident severity. For that reason the efficiency of these systems was analysed, in order to insure an efficient road maintenance regarding infrastructure costs and to reduce furthermore the severity of these accidents.

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.

Combined transport (CT) is an environmentally sensible and politically desired traffic, which is struggling with cost problems due to complicated supply chains. Previous innovations in CT have focused much on the development of new transhipment technologies. These innovations were very expensive and resulted in the medium term partly to a further increase in the cost of the supply chain. 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).

Social, economic and technological developments are placing increasingly more complex demands on the transport system and its capacity. New tech-nologies and innovations can significantly contribute to shaping sustainable mobility. They play an indispensable part in facing the major societal challenges such as climate change, scarcity of resources and demographic change and open up new economic opportunities for the transport sector, one of the most important economic branches in Austria

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.

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.

The study "INCOM-F" aimed to reduce the complexity between the actors (transport action and transport performance) of the freight mobility as well as to analyse its challenges (e.g. technical barriers as incompatible transport systems, lacking interoperability, different data formats etc.). The therefrom obtained results, allow the contracting entity to identify the most important actors and hence address promising RTI-topics in future national research calls.

The objective of this project was the elaboration of the handling instruction for the adaptation of conventional existing bridges to integral bridges by means of a survey of the national and international literature as well as statistical examination taking essential parameters into account. In addition to the essential construction details of the integral or semi-integral bridges (e.g., frame corner and concrete hinge) the deformable slip plate will also be examined and design rules will be suggested.

PHÄLIKS - The Phenomenon of driving left on multi-lane motorways - Measures and recommendations for the rule of keeping to the right side of the road
Within this study the phenomenon of driving on the left side on motorways was described and analysed with psychological, traffic related, juridical and sociological methods. Based on these results adequate measures were developed; these should enhance or facilitate the proper compliance with the traffic rules in Austria, which is driving on the right side of the road. Experts from relevant fields of expertise and competence (traffic, landscape, sociology etc.) accompanied the whole process by giving their inputs, evaluating the results of the exploration of the driving-left issue, and prepared and optimised the practical output of the project.
