Red de intercambio de información sobre la Vida en las Ciudades y todo lo concerniente a Áreas Temáticas de Arquitectura, Urbanismo, Geografía, Planeamiento Regional, Antropología, Sociología y Ecología Urbana, Patrimonio, y Educación en Arquitectura y Urbanismo, especialmente en Latinoamérica a fin de mantenernos informados en toda habla hispana.
My nombre es Dayra Penagos, soy de Bogotá, Colombia. Hace 16 meses trabajo y estudio en Londres. La empresa para la cual trabajo se llama LEGION, es una de las empresas líder en tecnología de simulación relacionado con el uso óptimo del espacio, la cual es punto de referencia a nivel mundial, para los grandes proyectos de infraestructura en las áreas de transporte masivo, metros, trenes, aeropuertos, estadios, grandes centros de entretenimiento, grandes centros comerciales y de negocios y amplios proyectos de desarrollo urbano.
En la compañía, yo soy la persona encargada de asistir al CEO con Relaciones Publicas, investigación y desarrollo de mercados en países de habla hispana.
He encontrado muy interesante el Blog que has creado de Urbanismo en Latinoamérica, pues lo veo como un paso muy importante y necesario para concientizar a los países latinoamericanos de la importancia en planificación urbana para mejorar el desarrollo, la infraestructura y en general la economía de cualquier país en desarrollo.
Te he enviado una solicitud de conexión a tu red de Linkedin y así conocerás un poco más de mi. Un millón de gracias de antemano por tu atención a este correo.

#1 in Pedestrian Simulation Solutions
LEGION PEDESTRIAN SIMULATION
Make the most of your facility & investments - enhanced capacity for your assets.
Whether your organization is a Transit Agency, Urban Planning agency, a Sports Venue or Major Event Planner, Legion is able to deliver significant increases in capacity of your facility (10% or more) for the same limited set of assets. This is achieved through the combination of Legion's unique predictive simulation technology, 12 years of expertise in its delivery and by integration with leading industry methods.
Legion is the only validated solution in the market that uses real data to provide real solutions. It is based on an unprecedented measurement program of actual people from over 1000 hours of video footage of pedestrians in 14 cities on three continents, covering more than 40 discrete contexts.
Legion's value to your organization goes well beyond the data and analysis its tools provide. The Legion solutions true benefits are realized in reduced capital expenditure, project cost savings, revenue opportunities and improved safety.
WHEN TO APPLY LEGION PEDESTRIAN SIMULATION INTO YOUR PROJECT
Legion simulation solutions are well suited for various stages of your project:
During the strategic planning or capital planning process is where, economically, the software, data and analysis can have the biggest impact by evaluating early in the process where you need to spend money and where you don't, enabling you to maximize cost savings at the earliest stage.
During the design phase for a facility design or refurbishment, you can minimize design iterations or alternatives by analyzing and comparing potential designs before too much time has been spent on flushing out design options. This can help shorten the overall design phase by efficiently removing options with data and analysis. Additionally by evaluating a design, you can optimize the design now and avoid costly design changes downstream during the build out.
Construction in transit, aviation, stadiums or rail stations as part of an upgrade to the infrastructure is a common occurrence. The agency wishes to maximize the available space for construction and material staging while remaining open to the public with minimal service interruptions. Maximizing the speed of construction while accommodating the pedestrian demand is a difficult balancing act. By modeling the proposed construction phasing plan the guess work is taken out of the process. Decisions regarding how much and where to close can be made with facts on what the outcome will be of the different construction staging and operations plans..
Daily Operations & Operations Planning:
Streamline daily operations by identifying more efficient designs or layouts which can drive better pedestrian flow without the need for added personnel or temporary barriers.
Compare and analyze various operational procedures and traffic demands to help a venue reach and maintain optimum operational efficiencies.
In the Sports Arena & Special Events situations, simulations can help to identify improvements to pedestrian flow without disrupting existing operations.
Train Operations: In the Train Sector, Legion Software can be used to manage various aspects of Train Operations which includes train car selection and fit out as well as assessment of timetable efficiency and performance optimization. At any stage of operations you can use Legion Simulation to assess and optimize your train schedules and train car capacities.
Safety and Security assessment:
Every rail & metro station, football stadium and airport requires an annual safety certificate.Commercial buildings need to test evacuation scenarios. Every major event needs to establish evacuation and contingency plans. Design, simulate and stress test safety measures in an efficient and timely manner. Simulate alternative evacuation scenarios where the key variables are modified so that you can see all results and eliminate the guess work.
Safety and security plans can be designed based on clear assessment of risk, calculated predictions thus removing a lot of the guess work and lowering the overall risk associated with security or safety issues.
CUSTOMER FEEDBACK & CASE STUDIES
"At Malaga Fire Brigade, we believe that advanced pedestrian simulation studies are increasingly vital to the design and safety of public spaces. We encouraged the use of Legion's software in projects like La Rosaleda Stadium and the Malaga Courts of Justice and the results were so compelling that we would like to demand that such studies are conducted for all public buildings above a certain capacity. To this end, we have submitted a formal change to the fire regulations and we are currently waiting for official approval. "

Legion Simulation focused on safety in relation to congestion during egress at Düsseldorf Arena.
Legion partner WSP recently used Legion Studio to model and analyze a major Egress Management Plan for the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground in England.
