Default Accessing TrafficControl object from travelers

Hello,

Is there a way to know (from the traveler point of view) which is the trafficControl object that is controlling the area the traveler is in?

I would like to change the "Max. Number in Area" of the controlled area (increasing by one) when a traveler goes into breakdown status. I am using the MTTR/MTBF tool to generate random breakdowns events and sometimes the breakdown happens within a contolled area, preventing other travelers to get into the area, and continue traveling.

Increasing the capacity of the area by one during the breakdown event should solve the temporary blocking.

Thanks in advance

Cheers

Cristian

FYI. Travelers are rear dump trucks moving material between two locations.

Hi, I would create a numberlabel on every TE and write a pointer to the actual active Trafficcontrol in it. So everytime your truck changes the area you only have to update the pointer in this label. And your Breakdown code can reference to this label too.

Assuming that you have no overlapping areas...
Code:
if(content(stored(traveler)))
{
	treenode trafficctrl = ownerobject(tonode(get(first(stored(traveler)))));
	inc(getvarnode(trafficctrl,"maxactive"),1);
}
