Map-Based Digital Twinning

for Freeway System Planning

The Highway Capacity Software (HCS) is now able to import from freeway segmentation database (a digital twin of the real-world) to offer intuitive and efficient means of assessing capacity deficiencies, work zone modeling, traffic diversion scenario assessment, etc. McTrans is now offering coding freeway systems under supervision in your agency to this segmentation database that is 100% compliant with the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM).

Once the segmentation database is ready for your agency, it is matter of minutes to decide how many lanes you can close for a work zone without creating a massive traffic jam. All traffic analyses based on HCM can be done at no set up time!

Segmentation Database Tool

Facility Segmentation

The Highway Capacity Software 2023 provides access to public agency databases to ensure HCM-compliant freeway analysis. Segmentation and demand data are imported directly from the databases for a selected facility stretch and study period.

Background and Case Study

A research project by Aghdashi et al. (2019) describes in detail the development of this methodology, database assembly, and software implementation for the case of North Caroline state. The online segmentation database enables to set up the model in a matter of minutes and end users to perform any single-day and whole-year freeway such as work zone or reliability analyses.
