We investigate and model the behavior of cyclists on the road in our Virtual Cycling Environment (VCE) platform as a first step towards a set of generalized models and behavioral descriptions of cyclists. The overall objective is from a cognitive psychology perspective trying to better understand cycling behavior as well as from an engineering point of view developing novel Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for Vulnerable Road Users (VRU).
