SIDRA INTERSECTION uses one of the most advanced methodologies of any road traffic analysis software.
SIDRA INTERSECTION has been a valuable technology transfer tool based on 40+ years of leading research carried out in Australia, first at the Australian Road Research Board and then at SIDRA SOLUTIONS. Our innovations have created a unique traffic engineering software package – motorists around the world have benefited from its practical application.
We have also incorporated the results of research conducted towards development of the US Highway Capacity Manual. SIDRA INTERSECTION has been developed continuously in response to feedback from practising traffic engineers and planners. This feedback has improved the methods used in SIDRA INTERSECTION and expanded its functionality, including a unique lane-based network modelling method. Read these papers and reports related to HCM.

The power of analytical models in traffic management and design
Dr Rahmi Akçelik has published a report presenting a brief discussion of why traffic modellers use analytical models for traffic and transport planning, management, design and operations purposes. The applications include traffic impact analysis, roundabout geometric design, efficient operation of traffic signal control systems and development of balanced Movement and Place solutions. Analytical models enhance the productivity of transport planners and traffic engineers by allowing them to analyse more scenarios with less effort. They are also used for verification and calibration of various aspects of microsimulation models.
