|In UC-win/Road, users can use Micro Simulation Player to import animation
files (*ani.txt) made by the PTV's VISSIM that is a traffic analysis tool
and to visualize traffic analysis results. This time we have implemented
a new function that transmits and compute realtime vehicle data to VISSIM
and reflects the data and the calculation result of surrounding vehicles
to UC-win/Road. The status of driving vehicle can be reflected to VISSIM
in real-time and 3D calculation results can be visualized with more reality.
The functions above are provided by not the simulation player but another
plug-in. VISSIM Ver.11 or newer version is supported.
The API provided by VISSIM helps to connect to and cut from VISSIM, transmit
data, and obtain calculation result.
The following contents can be linked:
- Driving vehicle (location, speed)
- Surrounding vehicle (location, speed)
- Traffic light
When a simulation is started after associating vehicles and traffic lights
in both of UC-win/Road and VISSIM, UC-win/Road transmits the vehicle data
to VISSIM, and VISSIM sends the calculation result to UC-win/Road.
