8-9 March 2016, Oslo

Norwegian Aimsun Users’ Meeting (NAUM) and Training Course

It is now almost five years since the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) adopted Aimsun as their mesoscopic modelling tool.

Many of our Norwegian users have gained experience with Aimsun at either the mesoscopic or microscopic level and are looking to share their project work and also further develop their skills.

On Tuesday 8th March we will be holding a Users’ Meeting in central Oslo followed by a custom training course on Wednesday 9th March specifically tailored to Norwegian traffic conditions.

Location

Both the NAUM and the training course will be at the following location:
Radhuset conference room
Scandic Victoria Hotel
Rosenkrantzgate 13
0121 Oslo
t: +47 24 14 70 00

Norwegian Aimsun Users’ Meeting (NAUM) – 8th March

The NAUM will consist of TSS updates on company activities and Aimsun software feature developments

Complete programme of events: NAUM, Oslo 2016

Training Course – 9th March

Grant MacKinnon and Josep Perarnau are the course tutors and will cover the following topics:

  • Demand matrix: Estimation, correction, evaluation
  • Route choice: Selection of route choice model, setting parameters, route analysis, calibration, how to avoid unreasonable routes, cost functions etc.
  • Microscopic-mesoscopic hybrid modelling: the main differences between meso and micro, parameter changes, network changes, how to calibration hybrid
  • How to move from meso to hybrid smoothly – it’s much more than just running uncalibrated micro pockets in a calibrated meso
  • Roundabouts: Coding and calibration
  • Outputs: Selected link, difference plots, a review of most important and useful outputs – for example, what you can use instead of the CONTRAM volume/capacity ratio to describe the performance of the network.
