Side-lane merging in an Aimsun Next mesoscopic model

June 2022: Aimsun Next has a specific mesoscopic merging behavior model that is controlled by the cooperation gap and merging gap parameters. Mohammad Saifuzzaman explains how to use these parameters to control merging behavior and match observed traffic flow and congestion.

An Introduction to Aimsun Next

A video guide to the new features in Aimsun Next mobility modeling software for helping planners understand the movement of pedestrians, cyclists, and users of public transportation.

Reversible lanes and alternating one-way lanes

May, 2022: In transport networks, the available infrastructure may vary through the day. In this technical note we will review how to close lanes temporarily in one direction so that the other direction can use them

Double Award Win for Abu Dhabi Team

April, 2022: One of our most high-profile projects is the Abu Dhabi hybrid simulation transport model, which is part of the Emirate-wide STEAM+ transport modelling framework.

MFC and Battery Consumption Model

April 2022: The new Microscopic Free-flow aCceleration (MFC) and Battery Consumption Models allow for a more accurate fuel and energy consumption analysis. This technical note walks you through the details of the models and how each parameter affects the vehicle behavior.

Abu Dhabi’s integrated transport modelling framework

March, 2022: In a project of unprecedented scale and complexity, the entire Abu Dhabi Emirate is to be served by a state-of-the-art, all-in-one transport modelling framework, built on the pillars of big data, integrated multi-tier modelling, and visualisation.

Mobility pattern prediction

Unlike purely data-driven methods, a simulation-based approach enables prediction of traffic states under recurrent conditions but also to predict the impact of incidents or changes to traffic control plans.

Transit Route Change traffic management action

March 2022: A new feature introduced in Next 22 is the Transit Route Change traffic management action. This technical note will go over how to implement the action and ways in which it could be used.
