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.

An English version of SimTread 2, a pedestrian simulation program, is now available as a plug-in exclusively for Vectorworks 2014 software. Developed through a partnership between A&A Co. Ltd., Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan, and Takenaka Corporation, SimTread lets you simulate and analyze crowd movement and plan evacuations using tools that integrate into projects you’ve already designed. The plug-in works for both Mac and Windows.
On July 20, A&A Co. Ltd., our distributor in Japan, held the first-ever SimTread seminar in Tokyo. SimTread is a pedestrian simulation tool that can be used with Vectorworks software to analyze pedestrian traffic flow, even for complex designs.
Looking for a way to simulate crowd movement and analyze pedestrian flows through your designs? Then you'll be happy to learn that Nemetschek Vectorworks is announcing exactly this type of tool at The AIA 2012 National Convention and Design Expo, which takes place May 17-19 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
