Traffic demand model Canton of Valais

The canton of Valais created the cantonal traffic demand model for private motorisation (VISUM) using BlueScan with a precision of 95%. Since September 2014, over 50 BlueScan sensors capture the mobility behaviour throughout the entire Canton. Various time periods can be modelled using the data (ADT year/month, AWT, peak periods, special weekdays, holiday periods, etc.) and interesting indicators can hence be derived, as shown in the following dashboard.

The same studies and results are also useful for municipalities, cities and towns with regard to sustainable transportation policies.

A dashboard visualises all inter- and intrazonal traffic movements, incl. commuters, tourists, etc.

This dashboard shows the significance of transit, commuter and tourist traffic for the three regions in connection with the adjacant cantons and countries.
