To strengthen active forms of mobility, it is necessary to adapt the road network in a way which allows optimal usage in spatial as well as temporal respect. For planning and (re)organization of public roads and places, suitable data and innovative planning tools must exist for these user-groups. Widespread analyzing, planning and simulation tools already exist for motorized forms of mobility, but to introduce evidence-based measures and politics for active forms of mobility, still considerable information- and planning barriers exist.
This project aims to establish a sound data basis for user-group specific traffic models and planning tools, with a focus on active mobility. Moreover the flow of bicyclists is modeled on the local scale in order to provide information for the spatial and temporal distribution of bicyclists. For the bicycle flow model a four step traffic model is compared to an agent-based simulation. The validated models are then incorporated in a planning tool, which is intended to facilitate informed decisions and to test the effect of measures before they are implemented.
