Cyclists movement: The results of assessing the intensity using surveillance cameras
Keywords:Bicycle traffic, Video monitoring, Urban bike infrastructure, Traffic estimation, Intensity accounting, Non-motorized vehicles
The increase in the number of rides with the use of non-motorized vehicles such as bicycles changes the requirements for urban infrastructure. As a result, there is a growing need for monitoring bicycle traffic. The purpose of this scientific work is to study the traffic intensity of cyclists and users of other non-motorized vehicles and analyse it by type of infrastructure, days of the week, and type of vehicle. For the study, we used data obtained from video surveillance cameras installed on the streets with different types of bicycle infrastructure. A database was formed based on the accounting of the cycle traffic intensity at the counting points. The analysis showed a similarity in the behaviour of cyclists in the conditions of identical infrastructure, which allows us to assess the intensity by the base points for each category of infrastructure.
