Improvement of IFC File Import

3D models of structure and rebar made in the IFC file format can be imported in the UC-win/Road as model resource. In addition, the imported models are arranged in the VR space automatically if the IFC files include coordinate data.
For example, you can easily check the construction status by switching the view of each part in cooperation with the 4D simulation. Since the imported IFC files are stored in the project, you can change your model edit back to default and export IFC files together with imported attribute information.

▲IFC import (displays model details and 3D space)

nD Simulation

We have added costs calculations, workloads, material values, and more to the 4D simulation. This means that each of these variables can be added, tracked over time, and visualized in the graph display below the 4D simulation’s Gantt chart.
The 3D view and the visualization of construction schedule, cost, and number of materials by graph allows you to examine, plan, and assess conditions related to construction such as safety, transportation route, traffic regulation, material management, weather, time and sunshine, and lighting at night comprehensively.

Develop high quality customized system flexibly by subdividing modules at low cost

●Easy to modify / add modules (driving simulation system)
Here are the developments cases in which we changed UC-win/Road vehicle dynamics model, customized user's hardware and log outputting of driving condition. It calculates the vehicle's movement by inputting the operation quantity of the pedal and the steering wheel from the usual game controler as an existing module structure (excluding added part on the right chart). Furthermore, it performs the calculation of vehicle's acceleration and track by an independent module. We modified the existing module for "Calculation of vehicle's acceleration". By doing so, customization of engine dynamic model of vehicles is made possible. Also by the modification of module for "Calculation of vehicle's track", we could fit the need of the road surface and the tire's adherence model. By the addition of "analog pedal device input" module and "pedal operation input switch" module, we could ensure the coexistence of the game controler and the other hardware, and accept the analog device. Finally, by adding module for "log acquistion and log saving", you can now obtain and output information regarding drive simulator.


The use of upgraded function and new feature function being developed in VR-Studio®

●Development of a new module / using in advance a function of product under development
In case we want to achieve a new function by customization, we develop the basic technique in a unique way, and continue on to design and develop in a way that would provide the most of the what the new function of the package has to offer. A function that runs scenario which can make the driving simulation improve significantly has been developed further by making use of know-how built up through customization and it will loaded as a new function to the next version. By the scenario function, it can put event in motion, elicit response from the drivers, and develop the stories of various driving. Also as for a newest technology of computer raphics, we adopt Shaders language for the next product, VR-Studio, and develop the texture processing of geography and the advanced expression of source of light.


The fulfillment of advanced simulation by the cooperation with hardware

●UC-win/Road Drive Simulator / Motion Platform
It is possible to customize UC-win/Road Drive Simulator(DS) which is a representative of cooperation with hardware.
"Motion platform" is has a maximum of 6 degrees of freedom, serving as a very realistic system that can provide maximum amount of feel of driving. Past developmental achievements in terms of DS include DS for car research, development of safe system, training simulator, simulator for publication, and train simulator. In the conbination with hardware, it can cover various simulation needs because it doesn't only make use of the features of real-time 3D VR which is essencial in cooperation with software but also it's the system which can perform the flexible drawing up of 3D space, modification and controling scenario and event.

HMD System / Head Mounted Display System


3D image output by Oculus Rift
With extremely wide view angle. Head tracking by the internal sensor.


■What is Oculus Rift?

A Head Mounted Display (HMD) developed and provided by Oculus VR in the US at lower price than existing HMD. Head tracking by the internal sensor and 3D image output of wide view angle are available.


■Display

Oculus Rift has an overwhelming wide field of view as a HMD. This is because that the fish-eye model screen shows wearers the flat liquid crystal display as if he/she is looking at a semi-hemisphere projector screen in front of him/her. Combination with stereoscopic view due to the difference of view between right and left improves the immersion feeling into the VR space. In addition, existing HMDs display normal images owing to spending much cost to the optical system in order to reduce the lens distortion to the minimum, whereas the Oculus Rift renders source images so that wearers can see good images when seeing through the distorted lens.


UC-win/Road Oculus Plugin

Oculus Rift Plug-in creates a stereoscopic 3D image with lens barrel distortion and tracks the camera view within UC-win/Road in line with the user's head movement using the sensor data.

■ Tool for examination with advantages of both physical and VR model

Advantage of VR : VR is highly flexible and expressive, and allows various considerations such as reproduction of traffic flow or changed weather conditions, which is impossible through a physical model.
Advantage of physical model : Physical model is more intuitive way to understand the overview of planning including the distance and size. Physical model allows various people to examine from the arbitrary viewpoints at the same time, understanding the whole city model simultaneously and touching the model directly.


■ Deciding the viewpoint under consideration in a physical model and displaying it in a VR model

The planning can be studied by easy and intuitive operation in comparison with VR only. In "UC-win/Road Physical Model and VR System", you can move in the VR space and make changes in the view direction by indicating the view points to examine with laser pointer on the model. The system consists of model, web camera, laser pointer, VR software "UC-win/Road", and display unit to view the VR display space. As a whole, the system consists of two functions: detecting laser pointer operation, passing detected information to UC-win/Road and representing it in VR space.

営業問い合わせフォーム : https://www2.forum8.co.jp/cgi-bin2/eigyo.htm


Radeonのビデオボード搭載のパソコンで問題ないか。

OPENGLに対応ということであれば、基本的には問題はないと思われます。但し、NVIDIAのボードで問題なく描画が行えるデータが、描画できない場合が生じる可能性があります。
また、問題が発生した場合、即時解決対応ができない場合があります。できましたら推奨のNVIDIAのボードをご利用いただきますようお願いいたします。


(株)HORI製のステアリングコントローラEXは使用可能か。

システムでサポートしているステアリングコントローラは通常PCへ接続可能なコントローラを採用しています。
(株)HORI製のステアリングコントローラEXはマイクロソフト社のXbox用ですが、このデバイスをPCへ接続し通常のゲーム等にて使用可能ですので、システムにおきましても使用可能です。しかしながら、弊社で実際に確認したわけではございません。その点は予めご了承ください。


PCにおいて「.NET Framework 3.0」が利用されている場合、何か問題は発生するか。

弊社で確認したところでは「.NET Framework 3.0」がインストールされているPC上でも何ら問題なくシステムは動作しています。


UC-win/RoadをデスクトップのPCで使用するに当たって、推奨されるスペックなどを教えてください。
 1) OS
 2) CPU(クロック数も)
 3) メモリ容量
 4) ビデオメモリ容量
 5) 画面解像度
 6) ハードディスク容量
 7) 画面の物理的な大きさ(15インチ、17インチ等)
 8) プリンタポート等、特別に必要なハードウェア
 9) その他注意事項があれば教えて下さい。

UC-win/Roadを使用する際に必要な環境のスペックは、下記ページをご参照ください。
>> UC-win/Road 製品利用環境

また、7)~9)については、以下の通りです。
7)画面の物理的な大きさ

→ 大きいほど見やすいといえます。

8)プリンタポート等、特別に必要なハードウェア

→ 運転などを行う場合、上記コントローラが必要です。

9)その他注意事項があれば教えて下さい。

→ メモリやビデオカードは動作に影響が大きいので、その点にご注意頂きご検討ください。

2.データ作成

Additional fee読込みは、別データからのモデルを取り込むことと考えて良いか?

その通りです。更に同じ景観の道路を取り込むと、道路も別モデルとして読み込みますので注意が必要です。


景観保存位置を削除できないが?

景観保存位置の編集画面で「削除」ボタンが有効にならないのは、スクリプトで設定されているためと考えられます。


モデルのグループ配置の電線設定を利用して、ガードケーブルを設置したいと思っています。
そこで、電線部分をケーブルにみせたいので、黒色から、シルバー系の色にする方法を教えて下さい。

電線のケーブル色を変更するには、ケーブル配置した後、電線部分をマウスでクリック選択し、表示された「電線の編集」画面から色の部分をクリックし、任意の 色を設定してください。なお、現時点ではデフォルト色の設定や一括で変更する機能がございません。そのため、面倒とは存じますが、柱間ごとに画面を表示し 個別に変更して頂きますようお願いいたします。


景観位置を座標と高さを指定して設定できないか。

メイン画面のアンダーバーに、現在位置の座標が表示されます。この座標は世界測地系です。それを参照しながら、景観位置を保存すれば可能です。ただし高さの指定は出来ません。
座標入力および、高さ設定については、飛行ルートを利用すれば可能です。平面図で飛行ルートを定義し、起点位置を座標入力して下さい。飛行ルートの縦断で 起点高さを設定します。飛行ルートの起点に動作制御点を設定し、速度0とします。飛行し、その位置を保存して下さい。


照明が点滅する表現をしたいが、できるか。できるならばどのような方法か。

モデルの可動設定でできます。UC-win/Road起動時に登録されているモデルのうちBrinkerというものがありますので、それを参照して下さい。
点灯しているテクスチャをマッピングしたオブジェクトと消灯しているテクスチャをマッピングしたオブジェクトをあらかじめモデルに用意しておき、UC- win/Roadに読み込んだあとモデル編集の可動設定で、それらを交互に見える位置に入換えることで点滅しているような表現となります。


ルート飛行の際、進行方向を見てしまうが、視線方向を指定できるか。

Look at Me という機能を使い、見たい方向を設定できます。手順は以下の通りです。

  1. 見たい方向にあるモデルの編集画面「制御対象」にチェックを入れます。
  2. 道路平面図で飛行ルートに動作制御点をAdditional fee、対象[モデル]を設定して下さい。
  3. コマンドに「LOOK AT ME」を設定して下さい。

以上で飛行すると、設定したモデルに視線を向けた状態で飛行します。


RoadからCivil3Dへ地形データをエクスポートする際に、どの程度の規模までエクスポートできるのか。
またその逆にCivil3DからRoadへ地形データをインポートする際にどれ程度の規模までインポートできるのか。

RoadからCivil3Dへ地形をエクスポートするときは、基本的にはRoadデータ範囲全体までエクスポートさせることが出来ます。
Civil3DからRoadへインポートする場合は、最大20km x 20kmの範囲でインポート可能ですが、マージの際は現在のRoadの範囲に制限されます。


交差点を車両に移動して走行時、がたがたと揺れる。揺れない方法はないか。

走行ボタンで走行するのではなく、車両に移動して走行した場合、交差点では、路面の変化に応じた挙動となります。交差する道路の縦断勾配や横断から互いにすりつけを行いますが、すりつけた路面状態を走行時に反映しています。


車道がシフトするにつれて、ゼブラの位置が変化するような場合、どのような設定をすればよいか。

ゼブラ帯の変化は、Transitionを使い設定します。添付頂いた計画の場合、以下の点に注意してTransitionを設定して下さい。

  1. 同じ方向の車線間のゼブラのテクスチャは、「断面の詳細」のギャップに設定
  2. 中央分離帯のゼブラのテクスチャは、車道と車道との間の断面に設定
  3. Transitionの前後でノード数(頂点の数)を一致させる必要があるため、ゼブラがなくなる位置の断面にも幅0のゼブラのテクスチャの断面を設定
  4. Transitionの「起点側の曲率」「終点側の曲率」を適切に設定

飛行ルート飛行中に正面ではなく角度を付けて見たい。

「道路平面」の画面で、飛行ルート上でマウスを右クリックし、「Additional fee-動作制御点」を選択します。
次に「編集-動作制御点」で、コマンドに「Sloly Turnheadもしくは、Turnhead」を選択し、角度を入力します。


3車線から2車線への車線変更部における車両の優先性について
3車線から2車線に車線が絞られる箇所において、第1車線をなくし、第2・3車線による2車線道路にしようとした場合、第1車線を走行してきた車両が第2車線よりも優先され、第2車線の流れが低下してしまう現象が出ている。これをうまく処理する方法は無いか。

3車線から2車線になるところで、確かに外側から1車線目の走行車が2車線目の走行車より優先されるように見えることを確認しました。
基本的には1車線目の走行車が2車線目に移れると判断したときに1車線目の車輌が2車線目に車線変更し、移れないと判断したときは1車線内に停止します。 1車線目の車輌が2車線目に移動しているときに2車線目の車輌が遭遇したときは、2車線目の車輌が衝突回避から、そのまま停止し、この停止が後々まで続い て渋滞することになります。


路線別生成交通量の車線への割り振りに付いて
仮に、片側2車線の道路で、生成交通量が500台の場合、恐らく各車線250台ずつに割り振って流していると思うが、これを7:3に割り振って流したい場合は、どのように設定すればよいか。

以下2つの方法があります。

  1. 各車線の起点側にオンランプを接続し、その各々に対して7:3の割合で走行車を生成するようにする。但し、車線毎にランプを接続させるためにはオンランプの位置をずらす必要があります。
  2. 考慮する区間手前に車線変更の動作制御点をAdditional feeし、或る車線の走行車を隣の車線へ7:3になるように設定する。

これらの方法のうち 2 については、車線変更時に渋滞が発生するかもしれません。そのため今回の場合は 1 による方法をお勧めします。


交通量の生成方法について
以前、この件について質問したところ、ポアソン分布に基づいて生成させているという回答を頂いた。仮に、フェーズ上3600秒、500/hrとなっていた場合、具体的にどのように交通が生成されるのか。

交 通流の生成にはポアソン分布を使用しています。ポアソン分布は、t 時間当たりに x 件の事象の発生確率を示します。確率ですので、平均的には同じであっても、或る時間と別の或る時間とでは必ずしも生成台数が一定ではございません。そのために或る時は少なく、別の或る時は沢山の車輌が生成され、それが画面に表示されます。
基本的に車輌の出現に関するフェーズの設定は、有効にした行に関して入力した時間の間、時間台数の交通量を生成するという意味になります。1行のみの場合 は入力した時間にかかわらず、設定した交通量(台/hr)で生成します。この設定には複数行の入力が可能です。
それは、設定した位置より手前側に信号を伴う交差点があると考えると分かり易いと考えます。基本的にその交差点の信号フェーズがここの入力の時間と考えれ ば良いです。例えば、或る信号の青のフェーズが30秒で赤のフェーズが10秒の場合、また交通量が500台/hrの場合、1行目時間->30、交通 量->500、2行目時間->10、交通量->0の様に入力します。信号のあるフェーズが3600秒には基本的にはなり得ませんので、 入力項目内容をご理解の上ご使用ください。


バスを一時停止後発進させたい。

以下の順に設定して下さい。

  1. バスモデルをポーズのみの可動設定を行う。
  2. バスを飛行体(走行車)にAdditional fee。
  3. 動作制御点を設定。
    1行目 速度0km
    2行目 コマンド指定と再開速度の指定

道路の建築限界4.5mを確認するために、たとえば路面から対象物の高さを計測する機能などはあるか。

計測機能は、モデル中心間の水平距離のみです。高さ等を確認するには、工夫が必要です。
建築限界を確認するための方法として考えられる例を以下に示します。

  1. 目盛りの入った定規モデルを作成し、それを移動させながら確認する。
  2. 建築限界の範囲を示すモデルを作成し、それを当ててみるか、走行させる。
  3. 建築限界の範囲を示す断面を作成し、表示非表示チェック、透過などを使い必要に応じて確認する。

以上のいずれかの方法を試して下さい。


道路断面で作成した平場に樹木を効率よく配置するにはどうすればよいか。

「道路付属物」として配置いただくのがもっとも適しています。但し、画一的になりますので、個別に配置するなど工夫が必要です。


駅前ロータリーの道路はどうすれば作れるか。

まず、ほぼ1周する道路を定義します。縦断線形で一方向の断面を設定し、道路編集の平面画面に戻ります。
道路の両端部に黄色三角が表示されていますので、オフランプとオンランプを接続します。
これで周回道路が作成できます。


現在、設計前、設計後の切り替えスイッチを使い複数の案を切り替え表示させている。
案が4つ以上あるため、パターンを増やしたい。

「オプション」-「景観のモデル表示」-「景観のAdditional fee」で現在、設計前、設計後含め、最大20パターンまで増やすことが可能です。
増やした分の景観の名称は「名称の変更」で変更することが出来表示切替はチェックの入り切り、また、その状態で配置したものは初期値としてその景観のみチェックが入った状態となります。
表示切替は、プルダウンによる切り替えのほか Ctrl + Shift + 数字(2桁も可能)を押し、Ctrl + Shiftを放すと、その数字の景観に切り替わります。


FORUM8名古屋事務所のサンプルデータで花火の処理をどのようにしているか教えてください。
>> FORUM8名古屋事務所 サンプルデータ (UC-win/Road Web Viewer)

3車線道路の中央より1車線をバス専用にしたい。特に道路の起点からそのように振り分けたい。

道路の起点からバス専用車線を作るには、次の手順で行います。

  1. 現在の起点の断面左3車線-右3車線を5mの位置に新たに設定します。
  2. 起点の道路断面を新しく左1車線-右3車線として作成します。
  3. 5mの位置でオンランプ接続が可能となるため、5mほどの距離のオンランプ道路を接続します。
  4. オンランプ道路は、左2車線の断面とします。
  5. 元々の道路には、バスを走行させ、オンランプには、一般車を走行させることで、中央よりのみバスが走行します。

遠景の樹木を背景で表現したい。その設定方法を知りたい。

3.地形/ストリートマップ/航空写真

2Km×1Km程度の1山の開発をVRで表現しようと考えている。
それに伴い、航空写真の撮影、航空測量を行う予定としているが、3次元の地形データとしてRoadで読み込む場合にどのような形式のデータが必要になるのか。

日本国内の山々であれば、UC-win/Roadは50mメッシュ標高データを標準で添付していますので、通常の地形読み込みで対応可能と考えます。
任意の山々ということであれば、xmlの書式にはなりますが、UC-win/Roadへ外部の地形データを取り込むことが可能です。xmlファイルの書式につきましては、オンラインヘルプ「テクニカルノート」-「地形データについて」-「外部地形データの作成」をご確認ください。xmlファイル自体はテキストファイルですので、メモ帳等でも作成可能です。もし、山々のデータのDXFファイルをお持ちであれば、弊社から出ています「UC-win/Roadデータ変換ツール」の中の「DXF変換ツール」でxml形式へ変換することができます。
また、AutoDesk社Civil3Dをお持ちであれば、UC-win/Roadと動的に地形データを取り込むことが可能ですので、Civil3Dがサポートする形式であればUC-win/Roadへ取り込むことができます。


任意地形に地形パッチデータを読み込んだところへ50mメッシュ地形を合成させたいのだが、可能か。

基本的には任意地形上に配置した任意地形パッチ上に50mメッシュを置くことはできません。しかしながら逆は可能です。方法を下記に記載しますので参考にしてください。

  • 任意地形パッチを地形パッチ編集画面から保存します。このとき地形パッチデータはいかなる座標系でも使用可能の状態で出力されます。
  • 出力したxmlファイルをメモ帳で開き、Originの位置をRoad座標系の座標値で編集し、結果全点が読み込んでいる地形に収まるようにします。
  • 配置する地形を読み込み、地形パッチを配置します。

場合によっては2. 3.の作業を繰り返し、位置を調整する必要があるかも知れません。地形パッチの重ね合わせはできませんので、繰り返す場合は、先に配置している地形パッチを一旦削除するようにしてください。


現在世界測地系の測量座標を所有しているが、世界測地系からの地形パッチXML作成の流れを教えてください。

地形パッチXMLの作成につきましては、メモ帳などのテキストエディタで下記手順に従って作成することになります。なお、座標値、標高ともにm単位で入力します。

  • 下記2行をそのままAdditional feeしてください。
    <?xml version=""1.0""?>
    <!DOCTYPE UCwinRoadTerrain SYSTEM ""UCwinRoadTerrain.dtd"">
  • 地形バージョン、座標系の設定の下記をAdditional feeしてください。
    <UCwinRoadTerrain version=""0.*"" coordinateSystem=""*"">
    ここで、versionには「0.2」をcoordinateSystemには当該測地座標系の数値を入力します。任意の座標系の場合は「0」を設定します。
  • 下記のとおり原点を設定してください。
    <Origin north=""*****"" east=""*****""/>
    ここでnorth、eastは当該測地座標系からの座標をそれぞれX、Yの値で設定します。このときその座標値は読み込む範囲内の座標値とする必要があります。
  • 下記フォーマットに従って各標高点を標高点数分Additional feeしてください。
    <Point north=""***.**"" east=""**.**""height=""**.**""/>
    north、eastは3)Originからの相対座標値で入力します。
  • xmlの終了という意味で下記一行をAdditional feeしてください。
    </UCwinRoadTerrain>
  • 任意のファイル名で保存する。
    このときの拡張子を「xml」とします。

なお、詳細が下記ヘルプにも記載されていますので参考にして下さい。

DXF変換後読込んだ地形の色を変更することはできるか。

メニューの「オプション」-「描画オプション」の「地形」で、標高毎に地形の画像を設定することができます。


航空写真を200枚貼るには、どの程度容量が必要か。

画像1枚あたりの大きさ(ピクセル数)にもよりますので、ファイル容量がどの程度になるかは何ともいえません。目安として、1000ピクセル四方の画像を 60枚程度貼り付けますと、Roadデータの容量は200MBを超えます。これには道路も含まれています。取り扱うことができるファイル容量は、マシンの メモリ等にもよるため一概に言えません。大きくなるようであれば、後から画像のピクセル数を減らして貼り直しを行うことで、容量を減らして下さい。


航空写真を綺麗に見せたい。

元の画像によりますが、最適にする設定があります。
「ストリートマップの読み込み」の画像品質にチェックを入れ、航空写真の1枚あたりの画像が1000×1000ピクセル程度であれば「標準解像度」、2000×2000ピクセル程度であれば「高解像度」とします。
仮に500×500の「低解像度」であっても、チェックを入れれば、入れないよりも改善されます。


地形を細かく調整したい。

3次元地形データがあれば、変換ツールによるDXF⇒XML、またはLandXMLの読み込みが可能です。(別途ツールやオプションが必要になります)
>> UC-win/Road 関連製品
>> UC -win/Road Pluginオプション
これらのツール、オプションが無い場合で、手作業でも部分的に調整したいとのことであれば、地形パッチの作成により任意の位置に標高点をAdditional feeまたは移動し、その標高点に高さを設定し、地形を調整することが可能です。


湖沼の反射をさせたくない。

湖沼には反射機能があるため利用される場合が多いですが、あえて反射させたくないのであれば、透過率、テクスチャ、色を調整し、反射が目立たない設定としてください。
全く反射させなくするには、3DSモデルを作成する、または地形で水面を表現する などがあります。


盛土を生成させたくない。

「断面編集」画面で盛土生成のチェックボックスのチェックをはずすと盛土の生成は行われません。


国土地理院の50mメッシュデータにSIMAデータを取り込む場合(あわせこむ)の座標値を一致させるにはどのように行うのか。

SIMAデータ変換ツールで出力したファイル(*.rd)の区画が、50mメッシュの区画と同じであれば、マージという形で取り込むことが出来ます。
手順としましては、以下のようになります。

  • SIMAデータ読み込む前に、ツール側の[編集]-[地形データの設定]により左下の座標値、地形の範囲を50mメッシュの範囲に合わせる(このとき設定する座標系は0:任意座標系で結構です)。
  • SIMAデータ読込み後、RDファイルへ出力する。
  • UC-win/Roadで同上地域を読み込む。
  • ツールで出力したRDファイルをマージする。

※このマージ作業の際、座標系、区画範囲が合っていないとエラーになります。


世界測地系の原点はどこか。

現在世界測地系は19の座標系に区分されています。それぞれの座標系ごとに原点が設けられております。
福井県は第6座標系に属するため、この原点は、北緯36度、東経136度となります。


20km×20kmより広い範囲の区画は設定できないか。

UC-win/Roadで作成できる空間は最大20km×20kmまでです。今春リリース予定の後継製品「VR-Studio®」では可能となります。


UC-win/Roadの制限で地形パッチは2000点までしか対応できないと聞いたが、かなり低い。

地形パッチは頂点がもっと読み込めます。あるデータで20万点を読み込んだことがあります。

5.交通流シミュレーション

路線Aで60キロで走行するとして生成された交通が、ある地点の交差点を左折して、時速40キロの路線Bを走行する場合、どのようにその車両に情報を入力するのか。

交差点で路線Bへ左折後は初期速度(この場合は時速60km)になるまで加速しようとします。そこで交差点左折後にその交通の速度が時速40kmになるよう に道路B上の交差点先に動作制御点を置いて、そこを通過する交通の速度を時速40kmに設定してください。動作制御点は道路平面図の道路を右クリックし ポップアップメニュー「Additional fee」-「動作制御点」により配置、同様に「編集」から編集することができます。


交差点の通過速度は、路線ごとに異なっているということでよいのか。

交通の速度は初期速度は与えられますが、その後は、交通の状況、車の重量により個々に変化します。従いまして、交差点の通過速度は路線ごとではなく、車輌ごとに異なるものとなります。


縦断勾配等により、あえて動作制御点の入力しなくても速度は変化するのか。

速度は重力と車全体の持つ各抵抗を考慮しています。従いまして、縦断勾配により速度は変化します。コックピットに乗った状態ですと、上り坂の場合はアクセルを効かせておかないと、次第に減速し最終的には停止します。


交通量の生成方法についてシミュレーション上、どのような考え方で、交通量が生成されているのか。

交通量の生成方法
A路線の起点方向から1000台/時の交通量が発生するとした場合、上流フェーズが「1つ」の場合は、「時間3600secs、交通量1000/hr」で構いません。 上流フェーズの「時間」は「交通流が生成される時間」のことで、複数設定されている場合、例えば3つ「A:30secs、B:50secs、C: 20secs」設定されている場合は、Aが30秒生成された後、次に、Bが50秒、更にCが20秒生成され、その後は「A → B → C」の順に生成が繰り返されます。そのため、「時間」は複数設定されている場合は意味を持ちますが、1つの場合は何が設定されていても特に意味を持ちません。
なお、この考え方は、道路端部に交差点があると仮定して、その路線に進入してくる交通流が信号によって断続的に変化することを考慮し、時間によって、交通流(時間当たりの生成台数)やプロファイル(車両の種類と割合)を変更できるようにしたものです。


高速生成について
高速生成によって、生成された交通量は、複数路線ある場合、各路線への割り振りはどのようになっているのか。
画面に表示される交通量は、何を表す交通量か。

高速生成によって生成された交通量は、複数路線ある場合、各路線ごとに設定されている交通量になります。
画面に表示される交通量は、全ての路線で再生された車輌数の合計です。


交通流のリセットを行いたいが、どこで行なえばよいか。

交通生成ボタンの右横に、交通流の一時停止ボタンがあり、さらにもう一つ右に交通生成のリセットボタンがあります。リセットの場合は、この2つ目のボタンを押して下さい。


現況交通量と現況の信号サイクルを入力して、現況渋滞を再現することは可能か。

可能です。渋滞シミュレーションを実施した実績もあります。
弊社ホームページに事例を掲載しておりますので、ご参照下さい。
「UC-win/Road交通シミュレーション適用事例
■大規模集客施設の建設に伴う交通需要の増加による渋滞発生シミュレーション」


ある道路沿いに、新規に開店した大型CSから道路に車両が流入するような表現(シミュレーション)を作成することは可能か。(空いた状態の道路に、CSから車が流入する場合や、渋滞して滞留しているようなところへCSから車が流入する場合など)

可能です。
大型CS駐車場出入り口の位置に交差点を作成し、交差点の編集で前面道路を優先道路(駐車場への道路を「道を譲る」)に設定してください。信号がある場合は当然信号制御設定を行います。
交通量等を設定し、シミュレーションを実施してください。
簡易に表現するのであれば、交差点を作成せずに、駐車場出入り口付近に任意交通流点をAdditional feeしそこでの交通流の発生、消滅を設定することで、擬似的にシミュレーションを行うことも出来ます。
