Matthew Juckes and Alexandre Torday explain the role of real-time traffic simulation in the pioneering Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) initiatve in San Diego, California.
The San Diego project is part of a key US initiative that aims to ease congestion and optimise traveller flow by coordinating transport operations and interfacing all aspects of the ITS infrastructure.
The article looks at how the project is making use of Aimsun Online and how real-time simulation has the potential to transform traffic management by offering unprecedented insights into the network. Initial test beds are showing that this will translate into enhanced travel time reliability, increased cost-efficiency and reduced fuel consumption and emissions.
