Bicycle Observatory – on the pulse of cycling

The project Bicycle Observatory aims to fuse technical sensor data and qualitative data into a multi-dimensional, spatially differentiated picture of bicycle mobility.

Where and when are how many and which type of bicyclists on the road? Which variables influence bicycle traffic? How can very different demands and mobility behaviours be adequately addressed? How can a sustainable bicycling culture be established?

Questions like these build the background for a research project called Bicycle Observatory – on the pulse of cycling. They are going to be tackled by an interdisciplinary consortium together with numerous partners until September 2020.

The project Bicycle Observatory aims to fuse technical sensor data and qualitative data into a multi-dimensional, spatially differentiated picture of bicycle mobility. This should facilitate a better understanding of the system of bicycle mobility and the vast variety of bicyclists. The contribution of the project Bicycle Observatory to the establishment of an extensive bicycle culture is evaluated in the domains of planning, politics, science and the bicycling community.
