MassMotion User Group Meeting - 15/16th September 2016
A huge thank you to all of the attendees at our recent MassMotion User Group meeting. We hope you all had an enjoyable time and learned from our developers, the Oasys team and also from each other. MassMotion developers will soon be adding your feedback from the User Group meeting onto Uservoice. They will be arranged as feature voting polls and we will let you know once they are available in the near future.
The two-day seminar consisted of thought-provoking discussions and presentations from some of the leading developers, academics and engineers in the world of pedestrian simulation. All Oasys pedestrian simulation software users were invited to attend free of charge. Among many experts from the industry, key members of the MassMotion development team flew in from Toronto to provide a sneak peak of MassMotion version 9 that is due for release late 2016. It was a unique opportunity for the Oasys team to gauge user thoughts on the software in order to continue to develop the most authentic simulator possible, with people in the model thinking and responding to their surroundings and events realistically. Enabling its users to continue to use the software with ease and for the very best results.
