Looking for partners

Simulation software

Legion started development work on its microscopic pedestrian simulation software in 1997. It achieved considerable early international success providing analysis for urban transport operators from New York to Hong Kong and organisers of major sporting events such as the Sydney Olympics.

Commercial release of the code last May coincided with a shift in the company's emphasis from consultancy to software provider.

Band says Legion will retain a modest in-house consultancy capability, but the focus is on developing a network of licensed partners. Atkins China in Hong Kong and Scott Wilson in the UK are early adopters of the technology. London's Crossrail took a licence agreement last month.

Because entry-level investment is high, Legion tends to be used on high-value projects. However Band's hope is that as the software becomes more accessible through accredited consultancy partners, they will introduce it to smaller-scale projects. Site licences for infrastructure operators are also available.
