We are excited to present you with the first public beta of Aimsun Next 8.3.
Our software development team’s latest improvements are focused on enhancing the performance of all model runs. New features include:
Reduced APA file size for quicker writing and reloading
Reduced DUE computational times
Profiled route choice intervals
Improved speed of OD adjustment experiments for static and dynamic matrix adjustment, departure and for departure time profiling
The previous restriction of a 0.6s simulation step when microsimulating with Legion for Aimsun no longer applies. The latest version of our microscopic simulator accepts any simulation step.
A new Dynamic Departure adjustment performs peak spreading to simulate drivers changing their departure time in order to achieve the same arrival time as congestion in the road network increases.
We’ve introduced this new object to easily provide aggregated detector data. A detector station emulates a single detector that covers several lanes for easier management; it also supports simulation validation at station level when the real data set has data by section instead of by lane.
Extended functionality to import real data, generate outputs, and figure in matrix adjustments.
The addition of this major world language complements the existing interfaces languages available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Chinese.
