One-Touch CORSIM Animation and HCS Analysis
TRANSYT-7F has the ability to import existing CORSIM input files. However, if no CORSIM file exists yet, TRANSYT-7F also offers “one-touch” CORSIM animation (i.e., CORSIM file export). This pre-processing feature creates NETSIM networks from scratch, and is available for either the entire TRANSYT-7F network, or for individual intersections. To create a CORSIM input file that reflects an entire TRANSYT-7F network, click on the “CORSIM Animation” icon on the TRANSYT-7F toolbar, or select “File > CORSIM > View animation for this network”. To create a CORSIM input file that reflects one intersection only, simply right-click on an intersection in the Map View, and select “CORSIM > View animation for this node”. If the user doesn’t wish to view animation, CORSIM input and/or output files can optionally be generated without launching animation.
It is also possible to right-click on an intersection in the Map View and view HCS results for that intersection. If the HCS file already exists, it will be opened automatically by HCS+. If not, an HCS file will be created instantly by a data conversion program, and this brand-new file will be opened automatically by HCS+. Timing plans can also be exported from TRANSYT-7F to HCS within the Timing View screen.
