Abstract

Traffic engineers are involved in transport modeling, traffic simulation, operation optimization, and the development of methods to control and analyze traffic itself. New developments of individual traffic, public transport as well as pedestrian movements are the hope to ensure mobility and accessibility in urban areas to secure mobility in the less profitable countryside, to increase safety, and to limit the effects on the environment caused by transportation. Around the globe, governments declare goals in each of the mentioned fields, mostly under the umbrella of intelligent transport systems (ITS) to develop a sustainable transportation for everyone.
