The March 2011 issue of Traffic Technology International Magazine has a technology profile feature on the role of Aimsun Online in an Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) project in San Diego, California. The project is part of a US DOT programme to end gridlock in urban areas, initially in three test sites, and eventually throughout the country.
The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is working with Delcan Corporation as the prime contractor to design, build and implement the ICM system. They will be focusing the preliminary demonstration phase on the Interstate 15 (I-15) corridor, a heavily congested north-south interstate corridor, where the ICM system is scheduled to go live in November 2012.
