No one likes a traffic jam. In a vehicle, they’re time consuming and frustrating, but in a pedestrian setting, they’re crowded and loud, not to mention dangerous in the event of an emergency. That’s where SimTread 2.5 pedestrian simulation software can play an instrumental role in helping you optimize plans for functionality and flow.

The acts of directing people through a museum, expediting fans’ exit from a football stadium, and simulating the evacuation of entire cities for natural disasters all share one common thread: they benefit from SimTread pedestrian simulation software. Developed by the Japanese Vectorworks distributor A&A Co., Ltd in partnership with Waseda University and Takenaka Corporation, this Vectorworks software plug-in tackles an array of crowd control needs such as analyzing pedestrian traffic flow, evaluating evacuation times, and verifying a design’s circulation patterns. With version 2.4 released today, anyone responsible for disaster preparedness, public safety, facilities management, or event, municipal, or campus planning will be better poised to handle circulation studies and flow analysis.
