SIDRA Workshops Summary

Show Hide

The following is a summary of the different types of SIDRA INTERSECTION Workshops that are currently available. A full description for each individual workshop is given on Eventbrite.

MODEL FUNDAMENTALS – The SIDRA MODEL FUNDAMENTALS Workshop is offered for SIDRA INTERSECTION users with all levels of experience and those who want to learn how to use SIDRA INTERSECTION for the first time. It will be of benefit to traffic and transport professionals and students interested in the essential concepts of traffic modelling and principles of traffic analysis. This one-day workshop will focus on traffic variables, concepts and principles that need to be understood for effective intersection and network modelling from a practical perspective using an analytical software tool such as SIDRA INTERSECTION. These traffic variables are of importance in preparing input, interpreting output, and calibrating the model for best representation of real-life traffic conditions.

BEGINNER – The BEGINNER Workshop is offered for people with no knowledge of SIDRA INTERSECTION. This one-day workshop will focus on the use of the basic aspects of the SIDRA INTERSECTION software including general aspects of the user interface, input data entry and a reasonable level of output familiarity.

INTERMEDIATE – The INTERMEDIATE Workshop is offered for people who have a moderate level of familiarity with SIDRA INTERSECTION, or people who will register for the BEGINNER Workshop at the same time. This two-day workshop will focus on effective application of the SIDRA INTERSECTION software to intersection and network analysis problems covering intermediate aspects of the use of SIDRA INTERSECTION, including a good level of output interpretation. The INTERMEDIATE Workshop aims to achieve a fairly high level of use of SIDRA INTERSECTION.

ADVANCED – The ADVANCED Workshop is offered for users with a good knowledge of the SIDRA INTERSECTION software, or people who will register for the INTERMEDIATE workshop at the same time. This two-day workshop is a high level workshop that will focus on the use of advanced procedures to model intersections and networks and to analyse some complicated cases of practical importance. The latest SIDRA INTERSECTION Version 8 will be used in this workshop.

VERSION 8 UPDATE – The SIDRA INTERSECTION 8 UPDATE Workshop is offered for users with a knowledge of earlier versions of the SIDRA INTERSECTION software. The objective of this one-day workshop is to provide a comprehensive update with the new features of SIDRA INTERSECTION 8 for intersection and network analysis to enable the use of this new version effectively.
