Editions

Professional Edition

Professional Editions come in three flavors, all with access to the full Aimsun Next platform with no network size limitations:

Professional for Microscopic Simulation

Microscopic simulation only.

Professional for Mesoscopic Simulation

Mesoscopic simulation only.

Professional for Travel Demand Modeling

Four-step travel demand modeling with macroscopic functionalities only.

Advanced Edition

Access static and dynamic (equilibrium) traffic assignment, mesoscopic, microscopic and hybrid mesoscopic-microscopic simulation along with O/D matrix manipulation tools for super-sized applications of any kind.

Expert Edition

All the benefits of Advanced, but with the addition of travel demand modeling. Now you can use a single software package for an entire transportation modeling project of any scale, from entering raw geographical and socio-economic data all the way through to simulation.

Notes

1 Professional comes in 3 flavors: Professional for Microscopic Simulation, Professional for Mesoscopic Simulation, and Professional for Travel Demand Modeling. All 3 Professional editions provide access to the full platform and to a single model, either microscopic or mesoscopic simulation or travel demand modeling.

2 Support for 4 threads in Professional and Advanced; support for 8 threads in Expert.

3 CONTRAM, Cube, Paramics, Synchro, Vissim, Visum.

4 With the microscopic simulator: SCATS, SCATS-RMS, SCOOT, Fast SCOOT UTC, UTOPIA, VS-Plus and as customized developments also ETRA, INDRA, SICE, Telvent, and ZGZ Prio. With the mesoscopic simulator: SCATS and UTOPIA.

5 There are two modules available: the Aimsun Next SIDRA interface, which is available from Aimsun; and the TRANSYT-Aimsun Next link, which is available from TRL. It is compatible with all Aimsun licenses that contain the microsimulator.
