Multi mODal Intersection Simulation (MODIS)
Technological and societal advancements in the last decade created unique challenges that can only be solved by better understanding and modelling the movement of all traffic participants, not just cars. From technological perspective, development of safe autonomous cars requires better simulation tools that understand pedestrian and cyclists movements patterns. From societal perspective, infrastructure that separates traffic participants providing an advantage to motorized vehicles is seen as undesirable which lead to sharing of the same traffic infrastructure by cars, pedestrians and cyclists without strong traffic rules. Having no traffic rules and mixing all traffic modes creates great challenges for the current traffic simulations and traffic models which were not designed to solve this type of problem.
