PTV Vistro 2020 Release Highlights

    • PTV Vistro 2020 succeeds the previous version PTV Vistro 7. With the new and upgraded features, you can now improve your traffic operations and impact analysis workflows and capabilities. PTV Vistro 2020 also has an OpenStreetMaps importer, lead pedestrian intervals, right-turn-on-red estimations, updated master controller and offset settings, visualization of downstream lane drops, and other improvements.

      You can check out the "What's New” document to learn more about all new features.

Quickly import network geometry

  • An OpenStreetMap importer is now integrated into PTV Vistro. You can now quickly import network geometry with a valid .OSM file to import network legs, number of lanes, intersection control types, lane widths, speeds, and street names to jumpstart your Vistro Model.

Better shifting of intersection legs

  • Intersection legs can now be shifted using an approach Offset value in the Intersection Setup Workflow tab. This feature can be used to also generate a parallel leg to help generate separated facilities like a bus lane.

Improved visualization of lane drops

  • Lane drops downstream of an intersection can now be visualized with Exit Pockets. You can now carry additional lanes through the intersection and then drop the lane to match the existing or proposed lane configurations.  

Add or delete a Through Lane

  • On legs entering or exiting the network, it is now possible to Add or Delete a Through lane. In addition, you can easily use this functionality to delete all through lanes to model a one-way street.

Delay Vehicle Green (Lead Pedestrian Interval)

  • Lead Pedestrian Intervals can now be added to Traffic Signals and analyzed in the Traffic Control Workflow tab using the Delay Vehicle Green values.

Signal Offset Updates

  • Traffic signals under the Traffic Control Workflow tab now have additional offset references, that allow signal coordination offsets to be referenced to many local agency preferences. Also, under the Edit Coordination Groups dialog, a Master Controller can now be defined for each coordination group. This feature can be used in tandem with Routes for further refinements to the coordination.

Calculate Right Turn on Red Volumes Based on Percentage

  • Right Turn on Red volumes can now be calculated based on a percentage of the Future Total Volume. This feature can be used at intersection locations to estimate a Right Turn on Red volume where data is not available, or to study the impacts on operations or safety with a specific desired percentage.

User-defined Final Saturation Flows per lane group Values

  • In Global Settings, it is now possible to define Final User-defined Saturation Flow Rates per lane group configuration. Use this feature to develop intersection configurations to agency design standards, and compare intersection operations under an array of consistent predefined values.
