Model Overview – Customer Service at a Border Crossing


Model Overview – Customer Service at a Border Crossing

New releases of AnyLogic come with new example models. These help newcomers understand simulations and experienced users to learn about AnyLogic’s advanced capabilities.

New to AnyLogic is our Border Checkpoint model. It is based on the same principles as classical queueing systems, such as those found in banks, shops, and medical centers.

In this post, we show how to model and analyze a variety of these business problems using the new border crossing model.

Improving Intersection Efficiency with Connected Vehicle Technology


Improving Intersection Efficiency with Connected Vehicle Technology

Traffic control strategies at intersections have evolved through applying advanced control technologies during recent decades, especially for signalized intersections around urban areas. Now, with emerging connected vehicle technology there is a renewed potential to improve the overall efficiency and safety conditions at intersections. A group from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville conducted a study of the relationship between average system delay and average queue length for traffic approaching signalized intersections. The team utilized data from the City of Detroit collected in a field test during the 2014 Intelligent Transportation Systems World Congress.

Road Traffic Simulation for City Planning: New AnyLogic Library in Action!


Road Traffic Simulation for City Planning: New AnyLogic Library in Action!

When planning new transfer hubs, developers need to verify the stations would provide expected passenger capacity, while city authorities have to learn how building a station would affect traffic in the area and public transfer load. Simulation modeling is a perfect instrument for solving such challenges. We covered, in a past blog, one of the models built for the Moscow Ring Railway project, passenger flow simulation at Cherkizovo transfer hub, where a station layout was tested at peak passenger loads. The project we are going to discuss today is another model of Moscow public transport system. We will talk about automobile traffic flow research at the transport hub of Volokolamskaya, done by ITS Consulting.

Improve Public Transit Bus Rider Satisfaction


Improve Public Transit Bus Rider Satisfaction

In public transport, bus bunching refers to a group of two or more transit vehicles (such as buses or trains), which were scheduled to be evenly spaced running along the same route, instead running in the same location at the same time, according to Wikipedia. Dave Sprogis, Volunteer Software Developer, and Data Analyst in Watertown, MA noticed a constant complaint from residents about bus service provided by the MBTA. On a route that advertises a bus “every 10 minutes or less” during rush hour, waits were frequently more than 30 minutes, sometimes an hour! As you probably assume, buses do not start out bunched — they start out evenly spaced according to the schedule that deploys them. However, as the buses run the route, some run a little faster while others run a little slower. There is variability in traffic lights, pedestrian crossings, numbers of passengers loading and unloading, or even differences in driver pace.
