VS-WorkSuite v3  [PDF, 1.00 MB]

The graphic-oriented tool VS-WorkSuite is used to define the control scheme for an intersection. Definition and documentation is carried out by a set of standard parameters. Software development skill are not required, only knowledge in traffic control.

The object-oriented planning and development user interface for VS-PLUS

The option VS-Freestyle has been developed and added to the VS-WorkSuite tool for special applications. With the this programming panel, the user can program specific control logic element using a flow chart notation. Parameters and program parts are linked with the VS-PLUS control environment. The resulting control scheme (logic and timing plan) can be tested with simulation runs using a simulation tool like VISSIM, Paramics or AIMSUN. Finally, the control scheme can be downloaded to the intersection controller.

VS-WorkSuite has open XML file interfaces to import data generated by other traffic engineering software. Through these interfaces, basic data, such as
 signal group information, clearance time matrices, offset time matrices and signal timing diagrams can be exchanged easily with other systems.
VS-WorkSuite keeps track of the various VS-PLUS versions. Depending on the type of intersection controller used, a wizard leads the traffic engineer through the parameter input process. Context-sensitive help is available at all points.

VS-PLUS control schemes can be edited directly without any development environment. They can also be modified directly at the intersection controller or re-imported into VS-WorkSuite for documentation and version control purposes.

When testing a VS-PLUS control scheme with a simulation model, the control parameters can be modified on-line. During the simulation, the VS-WorkSuite on-line Monitor can visualize the main control parameters on the screen. Observation of the signal changes allows an efficient optimization of control logic and timing plan.
