Aimsun Predict

Process real-time data to forecast upcoming traffic states: receive alerts for sudden anomalies or problems, and support proactive decisions.

By their very nature, technologies that support intelligent transportation programs capture massive amounts of real-time data. 

Aimsun Predict uses techniques such as data cleaning, clustering, prediction, and incident detection to make sense of this real-time data, provide situational awareness and forecast future traffic trends.

In a tight timeframe (typically four to 10 weeks), Aimsun Predict can help cities achieve major goals for their transportation programs.

Aimsun Predict – Top benefits

Real-time situational awareness of network performance: increase network management capabilities

Dashboard with customized metrics and KPIs: visualize the most relevant outputs in your preferred format

Alerts for unusual network performance in real-time: increase responsiveness to incidents, including breaches of air quality thresholds

Incident detection alerts: greater responsiveness to non-recurrent events or incidents

Data propagation using AI: support event planning to increase customer satisfaction and optimize resourcing and management

Forecast of evolution: predicts future traffic trends to identify performance, safety or environmental issues to support infrastructure improvements and operational planning

Quantative network performance: support operational decisions

Aimsun Predict – Top use cases

  • Online data cleaning: homogenizing data as it comes in from permanent sensors and preparing it for real-time applications.
 
  • Network state estimation: extending measures coming in from sensors at specific locations to the entire road network.
 
  • Network state prediction: predicting the evolution of the traffic conditions over the next few hours.
 
  • Network performance alerts: monitoring the performance of the transportation system and alerting traffic operators if it diverges from the usual pattern.
 
  • Online incident detection: detecting sudden changes in traffic data that may be the symptom of an incident, e.g., a sharp drop in traffic flow outside peak hours might indicate congestion due to a crash or collision.
 
  • Incident risk prediction: detecting and reporting situations that correspond to high risk of incidents, always having access to weather and traffic data in real time.
 
  • Air quality prediction: predicting the evolution of air quality in the upcoming hours and days.
 
  • Situational awareness and monitoring: providing a web-based dashboard updated in real-time to monitor the state of the transportation system.
 
  • Parking occupancy prediction: predicting parking occupancy in different areas over the next hour.
 
  • Bus travel time prediction: predicting what time buses will arrive at stops.

Case studies

Safety indicators for major highways

C-32 highway in Spain

Client: Abertis

Aim: a real-time traffic monitoring and forecasting solution to prevent incidents and test new technologies on the C-32, a primary highway in Catalonia, Spain.

  • The solution offers short- and mid-term predictions of flow and speed along each segment of the highway, fusing data from loop detectors, toll plazas and probe vehicles.

  • Traffic operators can now see alerts whenever the upcoming traffic conditions are similar to those that in the past led to incidents. They can therefore disseminate warnings and prevent the incidents.

  • The solution aids in assessing the collision risk on each highway segment by integrating critical information, such as the current flow and speed.

  • Abertis and Aimsun have just extended the collaboration for a second phase of monitoring and forecasting pollution levels, which includes calculation and prediction of vehicle emissions and speed recommendation.
