1 Both the Small and Standard editions have size limitations: Small edition can open, edit, save and execute networks of up to 20 nodes and 40km of lanes; Standard edition can model networks of up to 100 nodes and 200km of lanes. The Professional, Advanced and Expert editions do not have any network size limitations.

2 Aimsun Professional is available in three editions, Professional for Microscopic Simulation, Professional for Mesoscopic Simulation and Professional for Travel Demand Modelling. All three Aimsun Professional editions provide access to the full platform and to a single model, either microscopic or mesoscopic simulation or travel demand modelling.

3 Support for four threads in Professional and Advanced; support for eight threads in Expert.

4 CONTRAM, Cube, Paramics, Synchro, Vissim, Visum.

5 With the microscopic simulator: SCATS, SCATS-RMS, SCOOT, Fast SCOOT UTC, UTOPIA, VS-Plus and as customized developments also ETRA, INDRA, SICE, Telvent, Telent and ZGZ Prio. With the mesoscopic simulator: SCATS and UTOPIA.

6 The TRANSYT-Aimsun link is available as an additional module from TRL. It is compatible with all Aimsun licenses that contain the microsimulator.

Aimsun Small Edition

Microsimulate multi-modal intersections or small areas with total precision at an unbeatable price.

Aimsun Standard Edition

The fastest and most accurate micro-simulation on the market for small corridors or urban centres at the most competitive price.

Aimsun Professional Editions

Aimsun Professional now comes in three editions, so you only need to pay for the edition that fits your specific requirements. All three Professional editions give you access to the full Aimsun platform with no network size limitations:

  • Professional for Microscopic Simulation

    Microscopic simulation only.

  • Professional for Mesoscopic Simulation

    Mesoscopic simulation only.

  • Professional for Travel Demand Modelling

    Four-step travel demand modelling with macroscopic functionalities only.

Aimsun Advanced Edition

Access static and dynamic (equilibrium) traffic assignment, mesoscopic, microscopic and hybrid mesoscopic-microscopic simulation along with O/D matrix manipulation tools for super-sized applications of any kind.

Aimsun Expert Edition

All the benefits of Advanced, but with the addition of travel demand modelling. Now you can use a single software package for an entire transportation modelling project of any scale, from entering raw geographical and socio-economic data all the way through to simulation.
