Simulating Spatio-Temporal Patterns of Bicycle Flows

Increasing the mode share of bicycles is regarded as a solution to mitigate car-induced, urban problems, such as congestions, noise emission, pollution, etc. In order to come up with evidence-based planning processes and decisions, the “where” and “when” cyclists are on the road need be quantified. Bicycle traffic volumes of one simulation day in [...]
