The field of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) aims to make the existing transportation infrastructure safer and more efficient. It is challenging to measure improvements without relevant data and before proper traffic systems are in place. Deploying a traffic solution without pre-evaluation can lead to unnecessary costs. We address this by defining Agent-Based Modelling and Simulation method to improve safety and efficiency. As a case study, we apply the proposed method to the unsignalised Neckerspoel intersection in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. We show that for certain road user behaviour types, safety and efficiency can be improved by deploying C-ITS agents. The simulation results were used by Municipality of Eindhoven for redesigning the Neckerspoel intersection. As a future work the proposed method can be extended with additional traffic concerns.
