Who should attend.
The course is suitable for new LinSig users as well as existing users who wish to learn about the new Australia/New Zealand specific features in LinSig 3.2.
Delegates are expected to have a basic understanding of how traffic signals work and know what is meant by terms such as passenger car units (pcu), signal group, phase, cycle time, saturation flow and capacity.
Since 1985, LinSig has been the UK industry standard software for traffic signal junction design and modelling with later versions extending to provide detailed network modelling facilities. Spring 2012 will see the release of LinSig 3.2 which as well as providing all LinSig's existing modelling facilities such as network signal optimisation, matrix estimation, delay based assignment and pedestrian modelling and will also include a number of new features designed to assist users in Australia and New Zealand.
This two day workshop is key training for anyone new to LinSig who needs to produce efficient and accurate modelling as part of traffic signal design, development proposals or network studies. The workshop is equally aimed at people with experience in transport modelling, traffic signals, or earlier versions of LinSig, who wish to hone their existing skills, ensure correct applications, and be well placed to authorise or audit other people's work.
This course is a combination of lectured sessions and hands on building of models supervised by the trainer. It will include the following elements with ample time for delegates to raise additional issues:
