New features in Aimsun Next 24

Aimsun Next 24 builds on our commitment to transportation network analysis and optimization. Many of the new features focus on productivity with a view to enhancing the building and running of large-scale, multi-modal models for cities, highways, and regions.


Some of the highlights include:

  • Static macro assignment with continuous value of time (bi-criteria assignment): estimate more accurately the traffic using toll roads
  • Access travel time in the PT crowding discomfort function: you can now weight the discomfort of traveling on a crowded PT vehicle by the time you have to sit on-board
  • Waiting time outputs for pedestrians at crosswalks and PT stops: valuable statistics to analyze the benefit for pedestrians of a change in the signal timings or in the bus schedule
  • Gridlock prevention in meso by queue jump: reduces the likelihood of gridlocks in a mesoscopic simulation
  • External file references stored with relative paths: if you move a project to a different folder or computer, all external files contained in the project folder will still be found (even if you created custom subfolders).
  • SATURN importer: better handling of the import of multiple scenarios in a single model file
  • Copy and paste objects between models with different coordinate systems: the coordinate conversion happens on-the-fly and the pasted objects go to the right location
  • Bike detectors and impulse parallel reporting points with Yutraffic controllers: you can now test and simulate traffic signal controllers that use these settings in reality
