PTV Traffic Platform

This report presents an overview of the PTV TrafficPlatform software, which is designed as a tool to help in the training process of traffic operations center (TOC) operators. TrafficPlatform is based on an integration of VISSIM microsimulation, VISUM macrosimulation, SQL database, and a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). It is designed to allow for implementation of incident management strategies by the user (trainee) and a presentation of outputs from these strategies. It also allows for an off-line analysis of different types of incidents and incident management strategies. In addition to off-line data, TrafficPlatform has abilities to receive real time on-line data from traffic monitoring stations via VISUM Online underlying software and to use these data for traffic analysis.
