Abstract

Major events and disasters endanger the efficiency of road and rail transportation systems. For rescue forces, these transportation systems, as well as information on their current conditions and capacities, are necessary to ensure emergency aid and the transportation of goods and people. In the last years, the German Aerospace Center developed a decision support tool that provides consolidated information and operation recommendations regarding individual motor car traffic based on traffic simulation. In this paper, extensions with respect to multimodal transportation systems that have been recently implemented into the existing tool to extend its capability for rescue forces are presented. These extensions concern mainly the data management and the simulation. For testing and demonstrating the tool, a scenario placed at the region of Brunswick is chosen. The main objective is to provide rescue forces in major events and disasters with the extended tool to ensure a more efficient and successful coordination.
