Mobility planning for cities, highways, and regions

How can Aimsun help?

Scheme testing

Assess and compare future transportation schemes – anything from upgrading a highway corridor to developing a new regional transit strategy. 

Mobility analysis

Analyze mobility at strategic and operational levels.

Business case building 

Build a business case for investing in new ITS technology, such as upgrading traffic signals or deploying new variable message signs.

Cost-benefit analysis

Generate a cost-benefit analysis that includes metrics like emissions or the impact on travel time reliability for different modes. 

Sensitivity studies

Run a sensitivity study on the potential impact of mobility trends like ride sharing or schemes promoting walking and cycling in your town.  

EV impact studies

Model the impact of electric vehicles on your city’s power supply network.  

Policy planning

Analyze the transportation data gathered in your city to inform future urban policies. 

Event management

Plan how to handle major events in your city, from festivals and concerts to political rallies or major sporting events.  

Choose a search form.

Plan intelligently

Take care of all your planning and operations with a single model that’s flexible, scalable, and easy to maintain.

Aimsun frameworks provide an accurate virtual representation of your transportation network and how people use it in terms of their itinerary, mode, or travel time. Now you can get fast, cost-effective answers to all of your “What if?” questions. 

Plan to scale

An Aimsun modeling framework can adapt to your needs, covering an entire region for strategic analysis while also focusing on the detailed operation of trickier areas in the network.

Plan consistently

We set up the model and calibrate it against thoroughly cleaned and treated raw data coming from many different sources so that it’s ready for you – transportation authorities, consultants, and other stakeholders – to use for mobility studies. Using the same model for everything across all agencies ensures a consistent and cost-effective way of organising the future of your region’s mobility.

The Aimsun Approach

Our approach is completely integrated: a single, united network representation of how people move at a macro, meso, or micro level of detail. Our hybrid simulators mean you can zoom in and out at will, depending on how much detail you need. 

An integrated approach means you can get the full picture without needing to buy different software packages or build multiple representations of a network. Our integrated approach gives you a regional itinerary choice model that also provides the fine operational details of, say, the intersections near a public transport hub, right down to the level of pedestrians, bikes, or complex traffic signals operation following NEMA standards or emulating off-the-shelf solutions like SCATS or SCOOT.

The Aimsun Team

Our global team of highly qualified consultants, transportation engineers and developers will set up and maintain your Aimsun modeling framework. Our fast-growing data science team is also here to help you curate the overwhelming amount of transportation data that is now available and provide useful insights and valuable inputs. 

With offices in New York, London, Barcelona, Paris, Singapore, and Sydney, we have helped thousands of clients access a cost-effective and reliable virtual environment where they can assess their future transport plans.
