Initial situation and motivation - Delivery traffic and its loading activities often lead to challenges for stakeholders, especially in urban areas, as required loading zones are limited. The project Urban Loading showed that the knowledge of current and future capacity utilization of loading zones and the provision of this information to road users could significantly contribute to an optimization of delivery traffic.
Goals and innovative content - In order to comply with this increase in knowledge, SCHNURRR includes the development and testing of a flexible and mobile system for the selective and temporary recording of the utilization of zones for stationary freight traffic. The aim of the usage of this online data is, on the one hand, to support the planning and validation of loading zones and, on the other hand, to improve the prognosis algorithms of information systems.
Desired results and findings - As part of this project, a laboratory model will be developed, which will undergo initial tests and an evaluation in the urban mobility laboratory thinkport VIENNA as well as in a defined environment on the streets of Vienna. Together with the stakeholders involved in the project and thinkport VIENNA, the results of the project will be evaluated, and possible business models will be developed.
