New York City: Manhattan Traffic Model

The Manhattan Traffic Model (MTM) is one of the most complex large-scale simulation models currently in existence. The MTM will permit the consistent assessment of the network-wide cumulative impact of current and future traffic management projects and provide a platform for future analyses and expansion to other boroughs and, where possible, the region.

Montreal: expand and integrate the city model

The City of Montreal wants to make a move towards a reusable, super large-scale simulation base model. The first step was to find an all-in-one, extensible modelling environment that would not only allow it to streamline its simulation platform but also vastly expand the Montreal model....

Saint Petersburg: integration of Aimsun microsimulation and SPEKTR controllers

The Program Interface Controller (PIC) exemplifies what Aimsun is all about: openness and accessibility. Developed by Russian company RIPAS, the PIC is a kind of visionary tool that links Aimsun modelling software with the SPEKTR road traffic controller and the ITS SPEKTR (the control centre). This integration clearly demonstrates future possibilities to traffic engineers and potential investors and developers.

Sheffield: city centre model

Arup have been developing the Aimsun Next model of Sheffield city centre for Sheffield City Council over a number of years. It was originally intended to test the impact of a major development proposal but has subsequently been greatly expanded and developed in order to model the effects of public transport proposals and develop new transport models.

Paris: east extension of the Tramway des Maréchaux

La Marie de Paris (Paris city council) commissioned Aimsun to assess the impact of different designs for the new segregated tramway. Urban planners submitted four different scenarios: one axial tramway and three lateral tramways in different configurations.

Zaragoza: Mobility Plan

Evaluation of the short and long-term impact of a new tramway on the city's road network. The Aimsun team used an iterative macro/micro approach to study the future effects of the tramway and the results were central in Zaragoza's decision to give the project the green light.

Barcelona: variable speed limits on the access roads

The SCT (Catalan Traffic Department) commissioned Aimsun to provide the modelling and evaluation of the already operational variable speed limit system on the C31 and C32 access routes to Barcelona and its projected implementation on the A2 and B23.
