The work objectives are based on a risk analysis of behaviors of the target audience (65+). Safety risks and dangers resulting from structural barriers are to be identified in order to be removed. As a result, a catalogue of measures for accessible cities of the future will be composed based on the identified needs of senior citizens.
Children as passengers are the focus of this project. The goal is the identification of measures to reduce the number of accidents involving kids as passengers and to reduce the degree of injuries.
The European Road Safety Observatory (ERSO) is an important platform for unified expert information on the topic of road safety in Europe.
Mobility behavior and accidents of children are analyzed and mapped for Austria within the scope of the project "kids safely mobile."
Trends concerning senior citzizens in terms of their effects on mobility, based on knowledge won from futurology, are deduced as part of the "Pimp Up Your Skills" project. This will serve as a base for a guideline for future road safety measures for the target of older (65+) and older-to-be (50+) bicyclists and pedestrians.
Children adopt traffic behaviors through observing and copying their parents and other adults. The project " Role Model" focuses on the role model function of adults in traffic.
Cross Border Road Safety Management: The Project is part of the overall framework program called “Cross Border Collaboration Slovakia and Austria” and is conducted together with the Technical University of Bratislava.
Traffic safety measures in various areas (humans, infrastructure, automotive engineering) as they relate to costs and benefits are made available for systematic comparisons across Europe.
It consists of a European wide survey about knowledge of road traffic laws and road traffic risks, attitudes regarding road safety issues and reported road traffic behaviours. The project’s goal is to compare the participating countries in order to recommend road safety measures at the both the national and European level.
The project focuses on safety features on railway crossings along the border of Burgenland and western Hungary. Railroad crossings bear certain risks and dangers. This is especially true as the rules and regulations on driving and crossing railroads may differ among the two countries. In the years from 2010 to 2011, seven people died and eight more were severely injured along the border while crossing the railroad. The project aims to reduce fatalities at rail crossings by 10 percent.
TraSaCu: Traffic Safety Cultures and the Safe Systems Approach – Towards a Cultural Change Research and Innovation Agenda for Road Safety (EU-project within the framework program Horizon 2020).
The methode of naturalistic driving is for the first time used in a natural observation study across Europe as part of UDRIVE (eUropean naturalistic Driving and Riding for Infrastructure & Vehicle safety and Environment).
