iMOVE: Interactively visualising street design scenarios for communicating bike infrastructure options to communities and policy-makers


This collaboration with TfNSW under the iMOVE CRC develops virtual reality systems to evaluate bicycle infrastructure. The study investigates how to integrate cycling facilities into urban and suburban environments in ways that address the concerns of the 48% of people who are interested in cycling but concerned about safety.

A highly innovative element will be the use of immersive virtual reality technology and behavioural observations, rather than only stated preference approaches. Thus, providing an improved evidence base that will be utilised through the next iteration of cycleway design guidelines.
