Modelling of separate Movement Classes
SIDRA INTERSECTION allows modelling of separate Movement Classes (Light Vehicles, Heavy Vehicles, Buses, Bicycles, Large Trucks, Light Rail / Trams and two User Classes) with different vehicle characteristics.
These movements can be allocated to different lanes, lane segments and signal phases, for example for modelling bus priority lanes, bicycle lanes and tram lanes at signals, or for modelling unequal approach lane use based on destinations at closely-spaced intersection networks.
Output reports and displays by Movement Class, Pedestrians and Persons
SIDRA INTERSECTION has the ability for the user to choose the Movement Classes to be included in output reports and displays. Movement Classes include Light Vehicles, Heavy Vehicles, Buses, Bicycles, Large Trucks, Light Rail / Trams and six user-defined Movement Classes.
Output reports and displays include all relevant performance statistics (degree of saturation, delay, travel time, stop rate, cost, emissions, etc.) according to the Movement Classes selected by the user.
