CAST Vehicle Landside

Landside Traffic and Process Simulation Software

CAST Vehicle Landside is the flexible, comprehensive and most efficient modelling tool for landside traffic flows, processes and passenger drop off. It offers decision support for planning, optimization and validation of the landside road network, parking and related facilities.

CAST Vehicle Landside Simulation User Interface

Example Questions:

  • How to develop the landside infrastructure?
  • What are the bottlenecks in the access road network?
  • Does the curbside drop off provide enough capacity in the future?
  • Is there enough parking space (long term, short term, staff) available?
  • What are the best locations for parking areas?
  • How to manage Uber and taxi-traffic?
  • What is the optimal traffic guidance during construction measures?
  • How to guide the traffic in order to reduce driving times?

Technical Features

  • Flexible and efficient road network set-up (automated data import)
  • Traffic generation based on flight schedule or stochastical traffic generation
  • Scalable level of detail: quick facility requirement analysis or detailed simulation
  • Automatic routing, conflict resolution and dynamic traffic management
  • Simulation of special processes like checkpoints or toll stations
  • Integration of passenger flow, pedestrian crossings and interaction
  • Powerful automated analytics, dashboards and export of results
  • 3D visualization for analysis and highest management attention
  • Highly rated training and supports services for immediate success

Considering flight related and other traffic, with CAST Vehicle existing systems and new concepts can be rapidly evaluated in scalable levels of detail. An airport’s landside routing concept can be checked as well as the utilization of roads, parking and other functional areas, for example in order to identify bottlenecks, determine resources or assess the capacity. In combination with CAST’s pedestrian simulation capabilities, also the interaction with passenger flows can be modelled.

References & Customers

CAST has been developed by users for users with partners like BAA, Frankfurt Airport, Zurich Airport, Eurocontrol and Airbus.

Worldwide users include airport owners, airport operators, airlines, ground handling companies, ANS provider, logistic companies, authorities, universities and other organisations, as well as engineering, planning and consulting companies.

 

Additional Consulting Services

To ensure a quick start and immidiate success ARC offers consulting services, training as well as support for the initial set-up of a model.
As an further option the Continuous Modelling Service (CMS) does not only include the set-up of a 3D-CAST model of the airport but also a predefined simulation service on a regular base in order to check defined airport parts or to test next season’s schedule. For ARC and its worldwide clients a close and long term cooperation is one of the most important key factors to ensure the best possible outcomes and ensure the sustainable use of the CAST technology.

SUPPORT

Subsequent to the training experienced CAST experts thak care of the user support. The ARC helpdesk is there to answer technical questions regarding the use of CAST for specific tasks, technical problems or special features of CAST. Further, individual modelling and project support is available as an option.

CAST USER CONFERENCE

Being a CAST User means becoming a member of the CAST User Community. Every year, CAST users from various international airports, airlines and consulting companies come together to network with other experts, share experiences, talk about projects, gain insights into the latest developments and discuss CAST’s vision for the future.
