Traffic Software Integrated System - Corridor Simulation

TSISTM 6.3 was released in August 2012, and has been mailed to all offices with a current support subscription. TSIS-CORSIMTM is a microscopic traffic simulation software package for signal systems, freeway systems, or combined signal and freeway systems. TSIS-CORSIMTM requires Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Internet Explorer. Click on the hyperlinks below for more information.

Volume 4 of the Traffic Analysis Toolbox (CORSIMTM Application Guidelines) is available on the
Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) traffic analysis tools home page. Refer to the McTransTM home page for a link to the FHWA traffic analysis tools.

TSISTM is an integrated development environment that enables users to conduct traffic operations analysis. Built using a component architecture, TSISTM is a toolbox that contains tools that allow the user to define and manage traffic analysis projects, define traffic networks and create inputs for traffic simulation analysis, execute traffic simulation models, and interpret the results of those models.

Capabilities of TSIS-CORSIMTM include:

  • Verification and validation of other software
  • Surrogate for field data collection
  • Public presentation and demonstration
  • Freeway and surface street interchanges
  • Signal timing and signal coordination
  • Diverging diamond interchanges (DDI)
  • Land use traffic impact studies and access management studies
  • Emergency vehicles and signal pre-emption
  • Freeway weaving sections, lane adds and lane drops
  • Bus stations, bus routes, carpools and taxis
  • Ramp metering and HOV lanes
  • High occupancy toll (HOT) lanes
  • Unsignalized intersections and signal warrants
  • Two-lane highways with passing and no-passing zones
  • Incident detection and management
  • Queuing studies involving turn pockets and queue blockage
  • Toll plazas and truck weigh stations
  • Origin-destination traffic flow patterns
  • Traffic assignment for surface streets
  • Statistical output post-processing
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Run-time extension (RTE) for researchers
  • Simulation of right-hand drive or left-hand drive
  • Import files from HCSTM (Streets, Unsignal, Interchanges, Freeways, Ramps, Weaving)
  • Import files from TRANSYT-7FTM*, to quickly generate a network with dozens of signalized intersections
  • Export files to TRANSYT-7FTM*, for signal timing optimization and intersection level of service
* TSIS-CORSIMTM and TRANSYT-7FTM are now distributed together as one combined product. TRANSYT-7FTM release 11.33 is now automatically installed by the TSISTM 6.3 installation CD.

Extensive HTML-based electronic documentation is available for free within the TSISTM package. Context-sensitive help is available on numerous software screens. Users guides in Acrobat (PDF) format are available on the installation CD.
