Urban Art and Green
Looking at artworks can have positive effects on personal wellbeing and has been reported to reduce stress. In this project we will look more closely at the attributes of artworks and investigate what qualities of a piece lead to perceived and measurable well-being state in test subjects.
MyFairShare is a European research project with partners from 5 countries focusing on the improvement of accessibility.
Action research on child mobility
Seestadt offers particularly good conditions for active forms of mobility, both due to the design of the public space and the semi-public open spaces as well as the complementary mobility offers. Within the framework of a participatory mini-study, the qualities and potentials are to be understood more precisely from the children’s point of view. Together with the Neighbourhood Management and children of elementary school age, research will be conducted.
In view of the climate crisis, the Austrian mobility system faces complex challenges: Increasing traffic, urban sprawl and consumer-oriented lifestyles are causing more and more climate-relevant gases. Further, there are numerous barriers that stand in the way of the implementation of innovative sustainable mobility offers. A radical rethink is therefore required in many areas. ULTIMOB is concerned with advancing the turnaround in mobility, creating necessary new mobility offers and combining them with existing solutions in a meaningful way.
The HAUSRAD project aims to develop transport bike-based new mobility services. These could be, for example, new sharing services with new rental and pricing models.
ReNaMo – Law: Obstacle, Basis and Accelerator for Transformation Processes in Sustainable Mobility
ReNaMo is funded by the Austrian Climate and Energy Fund through the “Sustainable Mobility in Practice” programme. Being embedded in the aspern.mobil LAB, the project sets out to analyse the existing legal framework on the basis of innovative mobility case studies.
Tactical Mobilism – Interventions for a sustainable mobility culture
The aim of the “Tactical Mobilism” project was to establish and try out cost-effective interventions for the transformation of mobility spaces for a limited period of time.
Mobility Advisory Service Seestadt
The Seestadt Mobility Advisory Service is a project of the TU Vienna funded by the aspern Mobility Fund, which informs and advises the residents of aspern Seestadt in matters of mobility and choice of modes of transport.
The European research project CATAPULT focuses on vulnerable road users and aims to develop recommendations for policies on how future automated mobility services can become inclusive.
Private motorised transport is responsible for a whole range of negative impacts not only on climate and the environment, but also on human health. We want to raise awareness of air pollution among city dwellers by encouraging cyclists to collect local air quality data while cycling through the city.
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) has developed into a strongly expanding segment and enables older but still active people to manage their daily lives independently for as long as possible. AAL communities also provide ideal conditions for crowd logistics and shareconomy.
In VR-Planning (we’re planning), new innovative possibilities for improved participatory planning are explored and real-life application examples are used to show how virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) can improve cooperation between planners from different disciplines, politics and citizen participation.
PHOBILITY ACTIVE aims to enable people with phobia, anxiety and/or obsessive-compulsive disorder or anxiety that develops due to depression to participate in social life on an equal footing and to maintain or regain their Active Mobility for as long as possible.
Walk & Feel
The aim is to improve the conditions for pedestrians and thereby increase the quality of stay in urban areas. This can only be done through a high-quality database for assessing the quality of the footpath (walkability). New technological developments such as sensors make it possible to record and map physiological reactions in certain situations in order to identify perceptions and emotions.
An economically sustainable concept for the operation of micro-hubs is not feasible under the current framework conditions in the courier, express and parcel service sector; it is necessary to jointly investigate the future requirements here in order to subsequently be able to develop new services at, in and around micro-hubs.
The collaborative research project LARA Share aims to integrate cargo bikes more strongly into commercial and private goods transport. To this end, businesses and private individuals who use a motor vehicle for short, inner-city journeys with low transport volumes are to be motivated to switch to the use of cargo bikes.
