University research does not take place in an ivory tower. At the Mobility Lab, it is our pleasure to really live open research and to involve curious people from ‘outside’. In the POSITIM research project, we are developing and testing a mixed methods approach for investigating the effects of measures in road space. Not on the sidelines, but directly was Tobias, who as an intern built a distance measuring device for bicycles (based on the OpenBikeSensor project) and developed a dashboard for exploring the data. His contributions are currently being used very profitably in POSITIM together with biophysical measurements, GIS analyses and qualitative surveys. Tobias is currently attending the HTL Salzburg, but is already making his contribution to research on sustainable mobility as a high-school student.
