First up is our Fast Track feature for on-ramp behavior in mesoscopic models. There are two new parameters that give you more control over how vehicles move from an on-ramp lane into the main stream in a mesoscopic simulation: Cooperation Gap and Merging Gap.
Two improvements are now in place for hybrid macro-meso models: traffic management actions and an initial state.
A wide range of Aimsun Next traffic management actions are now available for use throughout a hybrid macro–meso model:
* Some limitations apply in macro areas
You can now use an initial state with hybrid macro–meso models. Like a microscopic initial state, it stores all the necessary information about vehicles in macro and meso areas. When the initial state is loaded, the vehicles are placed in the network, which means you can load vehicles from meso to macro or from macro to meso areas.
