Traffic management actions in Aimsun
Extendibility: scripts, APIs and cost functions
February 2021: Did you know that an Aimsun Next junction (node) can be linked to an external controller, such as the Siemens UTC System with SCOOT?
January 2021: In Technical Note #53, we gave some tips on how to modify the cost for static assignment based on the vehicle type. In this month’s pro tip, Marga Delgado explains how to do it per trip purpose.
December 2020: Using the Aimsun Next interface with SIDRA signal design software helps you create more realistic models, reduces the calibration effort and improves the model performance.
November 2020: In the previous tip, we shared a method for coding different speed limits for different vehicle types in dynamic models. In this month’s pro tip, Tessa Hayman explains how to do it for static models.
October 2020: Tessa Hayman reveals how to set different speed limits for different vehicle types in dynamic models.
Sep 2020: New pro tip! Our latest tutorial video shows you how to include pedestrian crossings in your Aimsun Next traffic model.
August 2020: Tessa Hayman explains hybrid macro-meso simulation in Aimsun Next 20 and how it can unite the best of macro and meso to enable regional-scale modeling.
July 2020: In Aimsun Next you can now add non-lane-based vehicles such as bikes to your model. In this technical note, we will explore how to create cyclists in your model and look at a few possible scenarios.
June 2020: Our new embedded pedestrian simulator is super fast, comes free of charge in the main installer, simulates an unlimited number of pedestrians.
May 2020: Dimitris Triantafyllos, explains how the Path Assignment Plan feature gives you unparalleled flexibility in reusing previously calculated paths.
April 2020: Emmanuel Bert describes how our Real Data Set Consistency Checker can help you in calibration and validation tasks.
March 2020: Martin Hartmann explains a quick and convenient way to study assumption-based behavior of autonomous and connected vehicles.
February 2020: Tessa Hayman shares three different ways to profile traffic demand that can help you build models efficiently.
January 2020: There are various scripts available in the template: Margarida Delgado explains how Script nº 10 can speed up the process of filtering and viewing signalized nodes.
December 2019: Tessa Hayman explains how to adjust parameters on roundabouts to ensure accurate behaviour and calibration in dynamic models.
November 2019: Tessa Hayman explains different methods of coding roundabouts for different roundabout layouts, ensuring correct lane usage and lane-changing behavior from entry to exit.
October 2019: Margarida Delgado explains where to find matrix cell values, and how to visualize desire lines and total trips per centroid.
September 2019: Martin Hartmann explains how to use View Modes in the capacity calibration process to model bottlenecks more realistically.
August 2019: Emmanuel Bert shares how the detector station grouping tool can help you to manage section detector statistics in Aimsun Next.
July 2019: Dimitris Triantafyllos shares a pro tip video for keeping track of revised nodes in your project to speed up the editing process.
