In order to investigate the traffic system in all its complexity, it is elementary to take all participants into account, including pedestrians and cyclists, the so-called Vulnerable Road Users (VRU). Therefore, we at the DLR-Institute of Transportation Systems have developed and built a pedestrian and a bike simulator that allows us to integrate the VRUs into interactive human-in-the-loop simulations in order to be able to answer up-to-date research questions. This complements our existing MoSAIC laboratory, which is now able to connect pedestrians, bicyclists and up to three car drivers into one simulation in order to investigate and evaluate individual behavior, communication in between road users and design aspects of cooperative Advance Driver Assistance Systems.
Let us together launch the VRU simulator at our digital inaugural event
on November 4, 2021, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
With lectures, videos and discussions we would like to introduce our extended MoSAIC laboratory and discuss the current state, open questions and relevant areas of application of VRU simulation.
Please note this date in your calendar, the agenda coming soon. We would be pleased to welcome you at the event!
