PTV Vissim - Introduction to Microscopic Traffic Flow Simulation (TR-T0201)
Learn the basics of microscopic traffic modelling with PTV Vissim
During this two-day course you will be introduced to microscopic traffic flow simulation with PTV Vissim. You will get to know the extensive functions of PTV Vissim and learn their application using practical examples.
In our introductory day, you will learn the basic functionality of PTV Vissim. At the end of the day you will be able to build small network models independently and perform initial evaluations.
On the second day, you will learn how to conduct high quality traffic studies much more efficiently using the microscopic simulation software PTV Vissim. You will get to know how the different calibrations of a traffic model are carried out and which factors must be considered.
We offer a one-day basic add-on course "PTV Vissim – Scenario-Management, Evaluations and Visualization of Traffic Models" (TR-T0207) to deeper explore the above topics and to learn additional features of PTV Vissim.
PTV Vissim beginners as well as traffic engineers from cities and engineering firms that want to work on their projects at state-of-the-art level and efficiency.
