‘Simulation software gives insights to Lyon’s traffic operators’

Traffic Technology International, June/July 2016



Emmanuel Bert, TSS Senior Consultant, reports on the Grand Lyon Opticities project, which is expected to demonstrate that a prediction tool can help traffic operators anticipate and mitigate peak congestion. Aimsun Online’s dynamic, high-speed simulation of large areas forecasts the future network flow patterns that will result from various traffic management actions, providing accurate strategy comparisons and allowing efficient implementation of the most suitable strategies.

Aimsun Online continuously processes live field data, simulating vehicle movements inside the Lyon study area, which covers approximately 870 miles (1,400km) of roads. Operators can simulate different scenarios, according to different strategies and travel policies (based on control plan configurations), to assess their relative impact on the network.
