Area of expertise: Transport Logistics & Mobility


Spurvariation

ongoing

What is the impact of truck platooning on pavement condition and the counter-effects of variations in track off-sets with following trucks on platooning’s positive slipstream effect? This research question has been answered in SPURVARIATION.

ITS Upper Austria 2

ongoing

Up-to-date traffic information for citizens and logistics companies plays an important role in the Upper Austrian region, both from a traffic planning and a strategic point of view. In order to be able to implement traffic management initiatives and modern mobility concepts, the generation of a real-time traffic situation and traffic forecasts is inevitable.

EVIS Realtime Traffic Information Austria

ongoing

Realtime Traffic Information is a crucial factor for high quality logistics services – and ultimately also for the location quality of Austria. Road operators throughout Austria have implemented traffic information services. What is still lacking today are nationwide levels of service, travel times and event messages for the Austrian road network made available in a unified quality and in common standards.

Esrium - Safe an efficient roads

ongoing

The European project “ESRIUM” to use and maintain EGNSS-enabled smart road infrastructure launched remotely. The consortium that makes up the “EGNSS-enabled Smart Road Infrastructure Usage and Maintenance for increased energy efficiency and safety on European road networks” (ESRIUM) project came together online to kick-start the project on 12th December 2020. ESRIUM is found under the programme Horizon 2020 to foster greener and smarter road usage, road maintenance, and increase road safety.

DIGEST – (DE acronym for

ongoing

The introduction of Cooperative Connected Automated Mobility (CCAM) ensures a significant increase of safety, efficiency and effectiveness in road traffic.

However, a safe and efficient CCAM implementation induces new challenges for road operators and automakers.

COPE - Collective Perception

ongoing

Logistikum at University of Applied Sciences Steyr is coordinating an important next step for automated and cross-linked driving in urban environment.

The project team focuses on the following overarching research question: How can safety in intersection situations be increased for all road users through cooperation and communication (C-ITS)?

AWARD

ongoing

The European Commission, through the H2020 framework program, has awarded a funding grant of nearly €20 million for a 29-partner strong consortium to develop and demonstrate driverless heavy-duty vehicles in harsh weather conditions for real-logistics operations. With EasyMile as coordinator and software provider, the large- scale All Weather Autonomous Real logistics operations and Demonstrations (AWARD) project aims to bring disruptive change to the trucking industry, fleet operators, and the whole logistics sector.

TRIUMPH II – Trimodal Transshipment Point Hinterland Harbor II

finished

The aim of the project TRIUMPH is to develop a concept of an intelligent multimodal communication hub which is capable of connecting all involved parties in the multimodal transport chain by using new standards of electronic data interchange (EDI-standards) and realtime traffic data (ITS). Due to the reduction of complexity by standardization and the elimination of inefficiencies a higher information value is achieved which builds the basis for further transshipment and storage process optimization.

SmartFleet LivingLab

finished

As the volume of traffic is increasing steadily, road operators have to face ever new challenges, due to the fact that there is neither more space nor budget for traffic infrastructure measures. Within the framework of the project ‘SmartFleet LivingLab’ a fleet of intelligently networked vehicles should be established, which should deliver vehicle real-time data in order to give information concerning the current traffic situation. On this basis, in a further step, newly developed traffic management measures respectively systems should provide the possibility for fleet operators as well as all for other affected stakeholders to benefit from less traffic jam situations.

 

Smart Hyperconnected Logistics Systems

finished

Smart Hyperconnected Logistics Systems investigates human-logistics-technology systems and aims at the development of methods and tools for designing such systems. The focus is on the integrative consideration of Digital Supply Chains, Intelligent Transportation Systems and Automated Driving.

LiSeGMo - Linking Services for Mobility of Goods

finished

Linking Services in the field af transport of goods could connecting data of several information systems to further can offer new information and booking services for door-to-door transport services operated by different service providers possibly using different modes of transport. The study LiSeGMo is dealing with questions of data accessibility, way to open barriers and the assessment of the

iSTRADA – Intelligent System for Traffic and Road-infrastructure Related Data

finished

The aim of the study “iSTRADA” is to develop a specific methodology with advantages for relevant stakeholders when different road-traffic and road-infrastructure databases are combined. The different databases are automatically pooled, completed and updated in order to evolve an innovative and online-usable Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)-service for transport management and logistics applications. The study should deliver the basis for a follow-up research project.

DigiTrans – Freight transport in Upper Austria ‘automated – connected – mobile’

finished

The DigiTrans project aims to probe a test region for automated and connected driving related to freight transport in the central area of Upper Austria. The test region shall build upon the requirements derived from regional industry and from regional infrastructure operators. Based on elicited requirements and demands the test region’s capabilities and a sustainable operator model are developed.
