Aimsun Next Tutorials Guide

New to Aimsun Next mobility modeling software? Our video tutorials and exercises will help you get started and learn the fundamentals of building and simulating a model.


We’re launching a new series of free video tutorials for using Aimsun Next mobility modeling software. No experience is necessary – these tutorials are designed for total beginners to follow. In this introduction to the series, Dimitris Triantafyllos outlines which topics we will be covering.

After you’ve installed Aimsun Next, watch the Tutorials playlist on the Aimsun YouTube channel – the videos are designed to go hand-in-hand with the written tutorials and practical exercises that you can access via the Welcome page of our software.

Written tutorials and exercises

When you start Aimsun Next, you can access our written tutorials from the Tutorials tab in the Welcome window, located to the right of the tabs for Projects and Aimsun News.

To start a tutorial:

  1. Click the Tutorials tab.
  2. Select a topic from the Tutorial drop-down list.
  3. Click Documentation to open the online Help file where you will find all the related exercises to complete.
  4. Return to Aimsun Next and click Initial Network to open a new model in which you can complete the exercises.
  5. Choose a folder where you would like to store your project. This will create the project folder structure and open an ANG file (the Aimsun Next main project file) where you can save your work.

If you want to skip the exercise(s) but view the final expected results and completed model, click Finished Network and open the completed network model.
