TR-T0209 Vissim Complex Parking Scenarios

Short description

In this course we show you the options available in PTV Vissim to model complex parking situations and the related vehicle behaviour. We explore different parking techniques along with the interaction of parking vehicles as well as parking structures with public transport and other general traffic. In practice examples you will learn how to model multi-level parking and huge car parks.

We will also discuss advanced parking options that go beyond PTV Vissim using the built-in COM interface to program own tools.

Please note: the use of the COM interface in this course is limited to parking related usage. To learn more about the COM functionalities, we recommend our course “PTV Vissim - Extending capabilities using the COM interface” (TR-T0205)

Course Level


Target Group

Experienced Vissim users who want to understand how to model complex parking scenarios in PTV Vissim.


You should have successfully completed our basic training course “PTV Vissim – Introduction to microscopic traffic flow simulation” (TR-T0201) or have comparable experience with PTV Vissim.

Basic programming knowledge is required to follow the COM programming part.
