July, 2022: Atlantia has finalized the acquisition of Yunex Traffic from Siemens Mobility. As part of Yunex Traffic Group, this marks the beginning of a new chapter for Aimsun too.
June, 2022: We were honoured to attend the recent traffic studies seminar hosted by the Abu Dhabi Integrated Transport Centre (ITC).
June, 2022: Aimsun is co-winner of the Best Road Safety Idea Award at the Road Safety and Simulation 2022 Conference in Athens!
June, 2022: Congratulations to Dave Keenan and Tessa Hayman, who won the peer-reviewed ‘Masters of Modelling Awards’ at Modelling World 2022!
June 2022: Aimsun Next has a specific mesoscopic merging behavior model that is controlled by the cooperation gap and merging gap parameters. Mohammad Saifuzzaman explains how to use these parameters to control merging behavior and match observed traffic flow and congestion.
How can we represent microscopic simulation results at the macroscopic level? One way is by use of the Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD) concept, which Aimsun has been progressing within the H2020 LEVITATE Project
May, 2022: In transport networks, the available infrastructure may vary through the day. In this technical note we will review how to close lanes temporarily in one direction so that the other direction can use them
May, 2022: Our head of Business Development in Spain, Josep Maria Aymamí, has been awarded the ITS España 2022 award in the ITS & Smart Cities category
April, 2022: Our Aimsun Pty Managing Director will serve the Intelligent Transportation Society of Singapore advisory body for the term 2022-23.
How can we explicitly represent, simulate and evaluate within-day behavioural (demand) and operational (supply) dynamics in emerging multi-actor passenger and freight transport systems?
April, 2022: One of our most high-profile projects is the Abu Dhabi hybrid simulation transport model, which is part of the Emirate-wide STEAM+ transport modelling framework.
April 2022: The new Microscopic Free-flow aCceleration (MFC) and Battery Consumption Models allow for a more accurate fuel and energy consumption analysis. This technical note walks you through the details of the models and how each parameter affects the vehicle behavior.
March, 2022: In a project of unprecedented scale and complexity, the entire Abu Dhabi Emirate is to be served by a state-of-the-art, all-in-one transport modelling framework, built on the pillars of big data, integrated multi-tier modelling, and visualisation.
Unlike purely data-driven methods, a simulation-based approach enables prediction of traffic states under recurrent conditions but also to predict the impact of incidents or changes to traffic control plans.
March 2022: A new feature introduced in Next 22 is the Transit Route Change traffic management action. This technical note will go over how to implement the action and ways in which it could be used.
