In the field of traffic road design, the shared space approach aims to develop roads from mere traffic infrastructures to public spaces, compelling higher interaction between road users. In this paper we develop the fundamentals for a micro-simulation tool based on the Social Force Model, to represent the motion of road users in such layouts. Working with the observed behavior of users in a pedestrian-friendly intersection in the city of Braunschweig (D), a multi-layer structured model is developed, in which each layer is designated to handle different situations, from free-flow movements to user interactions in crowded situations. Visibility graphs and clothoid estimations are used for designing trajectories of road users for the free flow movement. Furthermore, an enhancement of the classical Social Force Model is provided in order to model long-range collision avoidance behavior. Finally, the enhanced simulation framework is validated by two observed scenarios, which include various conflicts between pedestrians and cars.
