SOCCER - TRAFFIC SURVEILLANCE AND FORECAST FOR LARGE-SCALE EVENTS, Monitoring and Simulating the World Youth Day 2005 and the Soccer World Cup 2006

It could be demonstrated, that this novel surveillance system integrating airborne traffic surveillance with traditional ground detection of traffic flow can yield valuable information needed for a better management of big events. The combination with a simulation-based ap-proach to integrate a traditional travel demand forecast and the on-line data generated during the event itself leads not only to an almost complete coverage of the traffic system, it also delivers a short-term forecast for the action forces to react fast to developing aberrations. Still the methods need to be improved, e.g., data fusion between simulation and reality.
