DRIVE I Project "An Intelligent Traffic System for Vulnerable Road Users" created a computer model WLCAN1, which simulated the crossing behaviour of pedestrians on a length of urban street. Furthermore, a car-based assignment model SATURN was used to assess the effect on cars of pedestrian-friendly policies. The attitude towards this modelling work were very "Northern European" in four important senses: - The technical approach was based upon technology developed in Northern Europe for network models of cars, which are used widely throughout Northern Europe. - The behavioural sub-models used in WLCANl and SATURN were all taken from empirical results obtained in Northern Europe. - All data to feed and calibrate the models was collected at Northern European sites. - All the partners in the DRIVE I project were from Northern Europe, and so the model development automatically followed their way of thinking. The objectives of this deliverable are to assess the transferability of the modelling work of VULCANl (and subsequent updating in DRIVE 11) and SATURN to Portugal. These objectives cover both the transferability of empirically created behavioural sub-models as well as the usefulness of the technology to the practical end user.
