Used with Vectorworks®, a CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) program, SimTread can analyze pedestrian traffic flow even for complex designs.

As a pedestrian simulation software tool, SimTread can assist in and verify a design's occupant circulation—whether directing the slow meandering of people through an art museum or expediting the exit of tens of thousands of people from a stadium.

SimTread was developed by A&A Co., Ltd., Waseda University, and Takenaka Corporation and is sold and distributed in the U.S. by Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc.
