Digital Twins

The latest mobility modeling software creates a digital twin of the real world, a perfect virtual copy, where vehicle manufacturers and traffic managers can safely explore the limits of autonomous and connected vehicle technology to enable safer real-world deployment.

Aimsun Next software provides a set of tools for investigation into the use of Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) connectivity. The new, extensible V2X Software Development Kit (V2X SDK) can help researchers design innovative new systems based around connected vehicles and allow them to test future urban traffic management systems, in-car information tools, and autonomous vehicle controls.

Modeling at an appropriate scale, from a single junction to a city-wide road network, is an important part of what Aimsun Next is able to do with integrated macro, meso and micro models. The design of the V2X SDK in Aimsun Next, with its inherent extensibility and flexibility, is just a part of the same philosophy.
