New PTV Vissim/ PTV Viswalk Installation Examples ‘S-Queue With Shortcuts’

New examples for PTV Vissim / PTV Viswalk.

Today, we provide four variations of s-shaped pedestrian queuing zones where queuing aisles can be cut short. These shortcuts allow passengers to drastically reduce their walking distance at off-peak when most of the queuing area remains empty. Utilizing the new formula-based routing, a shortcut is opened as soon as the number of passengers in the next loop downstream is below a threshold value. If a shortcut is closed, this is visualized with a black belt.

All examples share the same principle and differ only by dimensions and arrangement.

They are available from PTV Vissim / PTV Viswalk version 11.00-01 at \Examples Training\Pedestrians\Queuing\S-Queue With Shortcuts.
