Pro edition

The Pro edition comes in three flavors: Pro MicroPro Meso and Pro TDM (for strategic modeling).

Only pay for the functionality that you need, but still enjoy access to the full Aimsun Next platform and unlimited network size.

Advanced edition

For super-sized, complex applications of any kind: access static and dynamic (equilibrium) traffic assignment, mesoscopic, microscopic and hybrid micro-meso and meso-macro simulation along with OD matrix manipulation tools – all in a single, integrated environment.

Expert edition

Our most powerful edition: all the benefits of Advanced, but with the addition of four-step travel demand modeling!

This single software package covers an entire transportation modeling project of any scale, from entering raw geographical and socio-economic data all the way through to simulation.
