How can the interactions between
choice of residence location and daily mobility be represented in traffic models? Which quantitative statements about the effect of new mobility offers can be achieved on the basis of models? Which changes in the use of transport modes could be caused by different measures influencing traffic?
The team "Models for Urban Spaces" has the task of developing models to map the location decisions of people and households as well as the daily individual transport demand. Short- and long-term interactions between transport supply, spatial structure and transport demand are mapped with the help of various in-house developed and commercial computer models. Thus, an activity-based, microscopic modelling approach is used to map current transport demand and its future developments.
