In the context of the current climate debate, more and more people are deciding to use the bicycle in their everyday life. Unfortunately, cyclists and other Vulnerable Road Users (VRU) have a high risk of getting injured in traffic accidents. In order to improve the safety of VRU there is the Virtual Cycling Environment (VCE) which allows to investigate driving behavior under the influence of assistance systems. The VCE can simulate many different traffic situations but does not offer an easy solution for the creation of specific traffic scenarios where common accidents occur. To extend the VCE with the possibility to do so, the Scenario Generator is developed. The Scenario Generator is an easy-to-use tool which allows a fast and flexible creation of various traffic scenarios by using a user interface with drag & drop functions. To use the created scenarios with the VCE the tool automatically generates all necessary configuration files for Unity, Sumo, Veins, and the Ego-Vehicle-Interface (EVI). To improve the tool’s usability two user studies were performed during the creation process. The studies show that the features are understood very fast by the different users, and they are able to create various traffic scenarios in short amounts of time. Moreover, the tool is capable of creating and handling network sizes which are equal to or larger than commonly used traffic networks by the VCE. The benchmarks showed that the number of vehicles can be a huge limiting factor during runtime especially when working with Veins.
