Conference paper


This paper deals with traffic models designed for the calculation of traffic demand: traffic frequency, traffic distribution and the allocation of traffic to different means of transportation. It engrosses the traffic participation of persons in work traffic. Human behaviour and traffic participation represent a system, which offer a wide area to support planning power. The today’s status of nearest neighbourhood to the “Traffic”-system shall be replaced by making that system an integrated component of it, creating the “Time-Use — Traffic” — System. This paper deals with this aspect. Subjects of detailed presentation are results of mobility research in greater German cities (Düsseldorf 1998, Duisburg 2000 and Essen 2001), the data transfer to the Traffic-Demand-Model and the need to prepare the model according to the new title.
