Short summary
With the resurgence in bicycle ridership in the last decade, a better understanding of bicycle rider behavior is important in accommodating increasing bicycle traffic as well as reducing accidents that come along with it. At TU Delft we have designed a fixed-base bicycle simulator to understand how bicycle rider's interact with other road users in a safe virtual environment.
With the resurgence in bicycle ridership in the last decade, a better understanding of bicycle...
