This presentation will present the findings of the comparison results for multiple analysis tools on the same location/roundabout. Common software tools and analysis methods: Sidra, VISSIM, HCS and Rodel will be compared.
The featured comparison will include a complex roundabout location in Hilliard, Ohio, where drone video was collected during the same timeframe that traffic counts were collected to provide recorded, real-world traffic operations during the analysis period. The traffic queuing results from the model analysis will be compared to queues recorded from the drone video.
Modeling methods and parameters will be discussed such as gap acceptance, headways, lane utilization, etc.
General conclusions will be shared regarding the capabilities of each analysis methodology for the given locations.
