IMPROVE -Optimal infrastructure planning by considering new vehicle technologies in the traffic simulation
The project IMPROVE combines a microscopic traffic flow simulation and a nanoscopic crash simulation. Additional realistic 3D environments create a novel holistic simulation method. While crash simulations are conventionally based on two-dimensional evaluations of the accident site, the integration of 3D objects enables a better reconstruction of the accident. With the prototypical implementation of the holistic simulation method, safety-critical configurations of traffic sites should be able to depict in detail before installation.
