Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET), Manav Rachna International Institute of Research and Studies (MRIIRS), organized a webinar on ‘Traffic Simulation Modelling Using PTV VISSIM’ on 12th December 2020. Approximate 35 participants from industry and academia attended this webinar.
The webinar began with a welcome address by Dr. Sadiqa Abbas, Prof., Department of Civil Engineering. The speaker of this webinar is Ms Swati Goyal, alumni of the 2018-2020 batch. She gave an amazing presentation clearly outlining the use of PTV VISSIM in Traffic simulation Modelling. She also stated the importance of software that traffic simulation is an indispensable instrument for transport planners and traffic engineers.
VISSIM is a microscopic, behavior-based multi-purpose traffic simulation to analyze and optimize traffic flows. It offers a wide variety of urban and highway applications, integrating public and private transportation. Complex traffic conditions are visualized in a high level of detail supported by realistic traffic models. She also shared the details about the role objective and opportunities related to Traffic Simulation Techniques and key terms associated with it. She also defined in detail how the models prepared in Vissim and how traffic engineers and planners get benefit from it.
