Working together on new urban mobility.
In Aspern Seestadt the aspern.mobil LAB is emerging – a place where residents, researchers and companies jointly contribute to the development of sustainable urban mobility.
Multidisciplinary Design & User Research, Faculty of Informatics, TU Wien
The research field MDUR brings years of expertise in the field of user interface design, user interaction and design thinking into the project. In addition to this research field, the MDUR particularly addresses user-centered design of information and communication technologies (ICT). One main focus lies on interdisciplinary methods, participatory design processes and user-centered usability evaluations of new technologies. The goal is always to achieve the highest possible acceptance and relevance for a heterogeneous user field.
Division of Transportation System Planning, Department of Spatial Planning, TU Wien
The Division of Transportation System Planning (IVS), together with seven other divisions, forms the Department of Spatial Planning at the Vienna University of Technology. In teaching and research the IVS deals with transport, mobility and logistics in the context of spatial development as well as in interactions with social, technological and economic aspects. Our overall approach integrates the demand and supply-oriented perspective.
Teaching and research focus on the analysis and sustainable design of mobility and transport. For this purpose, suitable measures, methods, instruments and processes are applied and further developed.
The research activities emphasize on social and technical innovations in mobility and transport with the following current priorities:
- interactions between space and mobility on different spatial levels from street space to the city level considering the aspects of different user groups
- urban mobility labs as experimental environments where mobility and transport innovations are explored, tested and implemented in a multidisciplinary way
- freight mobility and (city) logistics
- integrated strategies and measures for a future mobility and transport system focusing on users and their behavior
The IVS utilizes a broad variety of methodological skills, ranging from quantitative and qualitative methods of social research to traffic modeling and economic and ecological assessment methods used in complex research designs.
Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG
Wien 3420 AG is developing a city in which more than 20,000 people will live and thousands of people will work by 2028. Together with its partners, the development company coordinates urban development and the expansion of the infrastructure in Seestadt. The multidisciplinary team contributes diverse experience and serves as sparring partner for investors, builders and companies.
Wien 3420 AG is responsible for ensuring that you find everything a modern business location like Seestadt needs – from an efficient transportation system to a compact local amenities network, comprehensive infrastructure for properties as well as a logistics center for sustainable, efficient and thereby cost-effective construction.
The Neighbourhood Management Office
The Neighbourhood Management serves as a center focusing on neighborly and community-oriented development of Seestadt for its residents. The Neighbourhood Management encourages exploring and getting to know Seestadt and organizes places of exchange and cooperation. The Neighbourhood Management runs the resident-oriented blog meine.seestadt.info. In 2015, the idea contest “Seestadt nachhaltig mobil” was carried out reaching more than 70 submissions. The selected project ideas are currently implemented, financed by the Aspern mobility fund.
Martina Jauschneg studied landscape planning and works as a university lecturer at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU). Since 2009, Büro Jauschneg realizes projects incorporating open space, mobility and participation. Ms. Jauschneg has already established continuity as a link to various actors around aspern.mobil LAB. She acquired experience by working with different target groups in realized participation projects in mobility research as well as in learning projects about technologies and innovations for children and adolescents.
upstream – next level mobility
Digitalization is increasingly permeating the field of mobility. Meanwhile a digital access option exists in virtually all means of transportation. As a consequence, innumerable isolated solutions are developed without a common infrastructure. In addition, cities are facing an increasing growth of population. In order to ensure people’s mobility in the future, a redesign of mobility is necessary. Upstream – next level mobility GmbH seizes upon this notion: in the interest of public service and to ensure mobility, Upstream merges all digital mobility services into a communal platform, combined with customizable applications and tailor-made functions.
