Updated cycling models & the first longitudinal pedestrian test … ever?

sDNA cycling models have continued to get better and a recent paper in Int Jnl Sustainable Transportation shows how sDNA can model flows, mode choice and targeting investment. These models are all based on mixing lots of different user behaviours (trip types, distances and aversions to cycling in traffic) to match observed flow and mode choice data.

On the pedestrian front, Cardiff’s new Data Innovation Institute funded what we think is the first ever longitudinal (before-and-after backcasting) test of a pedestrian flow model, on our own city centre which saw huge redevelopment from 2007-2010.
