Gender-sensitive multisensory rail vehicle

#Carl Ritter von Ghega Institute for Integrated Mobility Research #Interdisciplinary project #National third-party funding

The aim of the project is to develop a catalogue of requirements for a general increase in attractiveness of public transport with particular focus on gender-based design of rail vehicles. Based on analyzes of perception and preferences regarding environmental factors and comfort factors, as well as extensive surveys of passenger behavior and passenger needs and current problem areas, measures to optimize interior design for the benefit for all can be formulated.


EISMON

#Carl Ritter von Ghega Institute for Integrated Mobility Research #National third-party funding #National co-operation project #Interdisciplinary project

Monitoring system for identification of critical ice accumulation to prevent the ballast fly induced by ice dropping. The proposed study aims to investigate the possibility of an integration of an intelligent infrastructure system for the detection of critical ice accumulation on rail vehicles.


Bridging gaps

#Ilse Arlt Institute for Social Inclusion Research #Carl Ritter von Ghega Institute for Integrated Mobility Research #National third-party funding #National co-operation project #Interdisciplinary project

The project „bridging gaps“ involves (pre)school children in the analysis of bridge lifecycle, cost, planning, periodical inspection and maintenance by taking the age and education level into account.


CargoRider

#Carl Ritter von Ghega Institute for Integrated Mobility Research #Institute of Creative\Media/Technologies #Institute of Media Economics #National third-party funding #Interdisciplinary project

CargoRider aims to explore whether for ships a platform comparable to InterRail can be constructed which would provide an alternative to air travel, especially for young people.


SmartBOX

#Carl Ritter von Ghega Institute for Integrated Mobility Research #Institute of Health Sciences #Interdisciplinary project #National third-party funding #National co-operation project

By the conception of an intelligent and integral approach the project smartBOX wants to revolutionize the growing needs of transport in the field of freight mobility in a time of resource scarcity.


BaKuRo Coupling robot for shunting yards

#Carl Ritter von Ghega Institute for Integrated Mobility Research

An introduction of automatic coupling seems unrealistic in the European railroad network. That is why it should be clarified in the course of the exploratory study BaKuRo if it is possible with today’s technologies to realize a robot-based solution for disconnecting and connecting of classical screw couplings between freight cars at marshalling yards.


GenSiSys

#Carl Ritter von Ghega Institute for Integrated Mobility Research #Physiotherapy (BA) #Institute of Creative\Media/Technologies #Institute of Health Sciences #Interdisciplinary project #National third-party funding

During this project, a set of methods will be developed to evaluate gender and diversity dimensions for the ergonomics and usability of workplaces in safety-critical systems.


BewusstMobil

#Institute of Creative\Media/Technologies #Carl Ritter von Ghega Institute for Integrated Mobility Research #Institute of Health Sciences #Physiotherapy (BA) #Interdisciplinary project #National third-party funding

The goal of this project is to use social media and games in a manner appropriate to people’s age to promote sustainable mobility behaviours and to stimulate people to reflect on their own behaviour.
