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.
