DEKRA Award 2021 – The winners

AIT Austrian Institute of Technology

The Mobility Observation Box (MOB)

The submission

The Mobility Observation Box (MOB) makes it possible to measure the safety of traffic infrastructures according to objective criteria and thus make them comparable. After data acquisition, machine learning is used to automatically recognize and classify different groups of road users (pedestrians, cyclists, cars, trucks, e-scooters, etc.), evaluate their traffic behavior and create a basis for targeted improvement measures.

Jury statement

The Mobility Observation Box (MOB) from the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology makes it possible to measure road safety. Thanks to this innovative development, the safety of transport infrastructure systems can be screened; i.e., measured according to objective criteria and then compared. After the data is collected, various road user groups – such as pedestrians, cyclists, cars, trucks, and e-scooters – are automatically detected, classified, and their road use behavior assessed using machine learning. This is used to help produce targeted improvements to increase road safety.

BAG Mehr Sicherheit für Kinder e.V.

Virtual giant kitchen

The submission

With the interactive 3D application of the virtual giant kitchen for PC, smartphone and VR glasses, BAG expands its educational offering on child safety. The kitchen puts users from the size into a 1.5 year old child. From this changed perspective, various accident risks can be discovered and minimized.

Jury statement

BAG is expanding its educational content aimed at increasing child safety with the Mehr Sicherheit für Kinder child initiative, using an interactive 3D application focused on a large virtual kitchen. This setting was chosen because the kitchen is the top location in the home where accidents occur. The virtual solution for PCs, smartphones, and VR headsets lets users view the world from the point of view of an 18-month-old child. From this new perspective, they can then identify and minimize various accident risks. There is plenty to learn from the virtual world, which increases users’ awareness in the long term.
