Cyclist Wayfinding and Stress in Wuppertal, Germany

I am very excited to be starting new line of research at Bergische Universität Wuppertal during my 2016 sabbatical appointment. Here, I'll be working with researchers from the Departments of Computer Simulation and Urban Studies & Sustainable Infrastructure Planning on a project focused on investigating bicyclist wayfinding strategies in an urban environment, one in which terrain and lack of bicycle facilities are ever-present. Through the use of bio-sensors, geospatial tracking technologies, GIS, and Agent Based Modeling, we hope to fully assess the mechanisms bicyclists use to find their destination, Ultimately, the outcomes can assist planners in Wuppertal, and other related cities efficiently plan for bicyclist mobility.
