OmniCAV blog, Sept 2020: Simon Navin of Ordnance Survey describes the preparation of geospatial data for simulating self-driving systems and how test and simulation environments can be developed using location information.
February 2018: Geline Canayon and Laura Torres give you a brief guided tour through the how, when, where and why of hybrid simulation.
January 2018: Margarida Delgado explains how the Distribution and Modal Split steps are now split into two separate processes to give you greater flexibility when choosing which model to work with, and to give you more control at each step.
August 2017: Want to update your strategic model zoning system to organise the ever-increasing amount of data available? Dimitris Triantafyllos and Paolo Rinelli show you how to split zones to better represent the entrance and exit of the traffic volumes in the network.
Thanks to the success of the ICM system, the FHWA has launched an ambitious project to develop advanced next generation Analysis, Modeling and Simulation (AMS) capabilities to evaluate the benefits of USDOT’s Advanced Travel Demand Management (ATDM) and Dynamic Mobility Applications (DMA) Connected Vehicle Programs.
Simulation software gives insights to Lyon’s traffic operators, Traffic Technology International, June/July 2016
Emmanuel Bert reports on the Grand Lyon Opticities project, which is expected to demonstrate that the Aimsun Online prediction tool can help traffic operators anticipate and mitigate peak congestion. Traffic management operators can simulate different scenarios, according to different strategies and travel policies to assess their relative impact on the network.
In a podcast from ITS Canada 2016, Matt Juckes tells Bob McQueen about high-profile Aimsun projects in Canada such as MTO’s very large-scale mesoscopic model of Toronto and Ville de Montréal’s hybrid model, currently being used to study transit signal priority (TSP).
The FLOURISH project, funded by InnovateUK this year, will develop services and
capabilities that link user needs and system requirements, focusing on the core themes
of connectivity, autonomy and customer interaction. By Mark Brackstone (TSS) and John McCarthy (Atkins).
