In recent years, the interest in riding in cities using the two-wheeler (e.g., bicycles, electric bicycles, electric mopeds, etc.) increases. Mixed-traffic road segments are one of the most common traffic scenes where the mixed two-wheeler flows exist. Because the movements are often not restricted by lanes, the two-wheeler uses lateral road...

Bicycle safety is quickly becoming an increasingly important field as the number of electric bicycles on the streets grows faster each year. E-bikes are able to accelerate quicker and travel at faster speeds than conventional bicycles, increasing the severity of injuries in case of an accident. There are a number of ways to improve safety, such...

Bicycles have an important role to play in the transition towards a more sustainable mobility. In order to achieve the modal shift towards bicycles, more must be done to accommodate cyclists. Although controlled intersections do increase the (perceived) safety of crossings with motorized vehicles, they are seen as major obstacles, and cyclists...

Bicycle disc brake noise and vibration, which usually falls in the frequency range of 0-2 kHz, is a principal braking quality attribute that has started to attract significant interest from bicycle manufacturers. Brake noise is an irritant to their customers, who see it as a symptom of a defective brake and that leads to unnecessary warranty...

Investigating station choice is important for possibly solving various capacity issues such as bicycle parking. Current literature is often restricted to dissatisfier parameters such as travel time, presence of transfer and travel costs. In order to fully understand station choice, this research includes factors regarding perceived safety and...

Summary<br/> <br/>This project is carried out in collaboration with bicycle accessories manufacturer Widek BV. Widek came with the plan to create a new design for bicycle handlebar grips with an increased ergonomic value compared to the currently available alternatives. The origination of this plan lies with the release of a paper containing new...

Up to now, not much is known about how humans control bicycles, especially when subject to large perturbations. In order to learn more about the extent to which these perturbations can be handled, a new experimental setup is required, which can deliver large perturbations to cyclists and bring them to fall. This thesis describes the detailed...

Selecting the perfect cycling saddle can be a long and painful process trying and buying multiple saddles. Riding on the wrong type of saddle can cause various irritations and can even result in erectile dysfunction (Goldstein, 2007) and may in the end spoil the fun of cycling.<br/><br/>A direction in the design of female saddles was chosen...

Increasing concerns about the safety of cyclists request for more research in how infrastructure can be improved to increase cycling safety. Literature in the prediction of bicycle crash risk however is very limited. Also the amount of available (exposure) data was often very limited. The aim of this study was to provide a better understanding...

Cyclists are expected to interact with automated vehicles (AVs) in future traffic, yet we know little about the nature of this interaction and the safety implications of AVs on cyclists. On-bike human–machine interfaces (HMIs) and connecting cyclists to AVs and the road infrastructure may have the potential to enhance the safety of cyclists....

Similarly to Maslow’s pyramid of human needs, we theorize that cities have a pyramid of bicycle network needs that depends on their level of bicycle culture. As an increasing number of data sources emerge for bicycle data collection, transport authorities face the challenge of understanding how to use the data and which data sources are fit for...

In this study a unique bicycle sharing program (BSP) is studied: a BSP initiated by an urban transit provider (buses and trams). The idea is that the combined use of BSPs and buses and trams could increase the catchment area of urban transit alone, therefore offering a more competitive alternative for the car. However, in the scientific...

Crowdshipping has recently emerged as a sustainable option for urban parcel delivery, where transport tasks are carried out by regular citizens who are engaged in a passenger trip, instead of the usual professional carriers. A key challenge for such as service offering is to maintain a sustainable network of customers (demand) and couriers ...

Experiments and human rider models were used to investigate bicycle balance and steering using visuo/vestibular motion and proprioceptive feedback taking into account sensory delays. An instrumented steer-by-wire bicycle designed and built at the TU Delft bicycle laboratory was used to investigate rider responses with and with reduced...

Pedestrians are among the travelers most vulnerable to collisions that are associated with high fatality and injury rates. The increasing rate of urbanization and mixed land-use construction make walking (along with other non-motorized travel) a predominant transportation mode with a wide variety of behaviors expected. Because of the inherent...

The goals of bus services can be split into patronage (regarding the number of people that actually use the service) and coverage (regarding the number of people that are able to use the service) goals. Current bus networks are designed primarily for the coverage goals, as a consequence the patronage is lacking resulting in only few bus services...

Bicycle simulator research has been the subject of considerable research, however, few of these attempts have integrated direct balance control and enough freedom of motion to deliver a real-world kinematic cycling experience. In this study, the B.I.K.E. (Bicycle Intrinsic Kinematics Emulator) system, a kinematic bicycle simulator, is developed...

Wierbos, M.J. (author)
This dissertation studies the dynamics of bicycle traffic flow. The research focuses on busy situations such as bicycle queues at intersections and congestion upstream of a bottleneck. The cycling movements are analyzed on the aggregated scale in terms of density, speed and flow. Furthermore, cyclists are included in a traffic flow model by...

During the 1990s, Dutch bicycle policy took shape within the Bicycle Master Plan (BMP) framework, part of the Second Transport Structure Plan (Tweede Structuurschema Verkeer en Vervoer SVV-II a) for the period 1990-2010. A decentralized policy execution approach was followed, where the municipalities were encouraged to form their policy...

Bicycles connected to the internet present an opportunity for integrated accident detection and geolocation. Such a system can reduce the time it takes for help to arrive by automatically alerting predefined contacts with the location of the accident. I developed a systematic method for the practical implementation of bicycle accident detection...
