Paris Model

The Aimsun Paris model extends far beyond the city limits to encompass the suburbs within the A86 motorway. This is one of the largest, most complex transportation models in existence - the multi-level model combines sweeping scope with great detail to simulate the daily movements of over 12 million people.

Aimsun has been the modeling framework of choice for the Mairie de Paris (City of Paris) for twelve years.

 

Our France team has now been awarded four consecutive four-year contracts to support local transportation planning and operations.

From remodeling the entire Eiffel Tower area to evaluating integrated mobility schemes in Bastille Square. The blue outline shows the scope of the dynamic model of Paris, while the larger area is a static model of the entire Île-de-France region.
