SIAS is a software development company whose headquarter is in Edinburgh,
UK, and produces the transport planning software by an advanced micro simulation,
and S-Paramics as main development products. S-Paramics mounts the wide
range and highly precise modeling function by the robust path control in
a large-scale traffic network, and also cooperates with the ITS system
and a UTC system. Furthermore, the modeling of public institution vehicles
including the operation schedule of the bus by an user-defined and the
passengers' getting on and off at the bus stop can also be performed.
Forum 8 and SIAS have concluded the technical partner contract in 2009.
From that time, Forum 8 has developed the integrated interface between
S-Paramics and UC-win/Road, and selling S-Paramics plug-in which can visualize
the S-Paramics data in 3DVR environment with UC-win/Road now. Lately, the
FORUM8 and SIAS concluded business partnership and it makes that both companies
sell a product mutually in every corner of the earth realized.
Although S-Paramics Microsimulation can perform expression of geography,
such as a landscape and a building etc, the main purpose of this software
is in the analysis, design, investigation, and evaluation of transport
planning and city planning. It also enables to output running time, a confusion
level, a fuel consumption amount of consumption, and the amount of carbon
dioxide and then compare according to the condition, and this output function
supports consensus formation of the Road Bureau of a municipality or UK.
However, because the needs to visualize transport planning in more real
3DVR environment from a number of the stakeholder in recent years, SIAS
requested FORUM8 to develop and provide the interface to inport the S-Paramics
data to UC-win/Road. SIAS will expand the market of S-Paramics in Europe,
North America and South America, and Oceania, on the other hand, FORUM8
will expand the market of S-Paramics in Asia from now on.
