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.
Grand succès pour la première Réunion Annuelle des Utilisateurs d’Aimsun en France, avec environ 70 participants!
June 2017: Dimitris Triantafyllos and Carles Illera explain how to use a Turning Penalty Function that can perceive costs from a control plan, and how to model stop/yield signs in macro using Junction Delay Functions.
May 2017: Dimitris Triantafyllos and Sergi Pujadas explain how to alleviate traffic congestion using a variety of traffic management actions.
April 2017: Laura Torres, Sergi Pujadas and Emmanuel Bert explain the nuts and bolts of how to get your Aimsun videos looking sharp and running smoothly.
March 2017: Marga Delgado shows you how to use Contents to group matrices into subfolders, which is particularly convenient when working with multiple matrices.
February 2017: Sara Pardo shows you how to customize the order of your objects for clearer and more semantic organisation.
January 2017: Paolo Rinelli and Dimitris Triantafyllos explain a technique for modelling connected vehicles using Aimsun API: Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control.
New features in this minor update include 2-lane car-following in adjacent subpaths, subpaths outputs by entry and exit section and subpath trajectories.
El RACC ha presentat un estudi que analitza 21 cruïlles de l’Eixample per avaluar l’impacte de la unió dels tramvies sobre la qualitat de l’aire i la mobilitat de diferents modes de transport.
December 2016: Maud Chassat describes how Aimsun’s attribute overrides can be extremely useful for modifying attributes of existing objects.
40 transport professionals gathered at the first ever UK-specific Aimsun Users’ Meeting in London last month to focus on local research and projects.
November 2016: Tamara Djukic explains how to use groupings of sections or detectors to define screenlines – a great technique for more efficient OD demand adjustment and validation.
October 2016: Tamara Djukic explains how the Grouping Category tool can speed up and improve the way you apply traffic data to calibration and validation of traffic models or simulation input and output data processing. With additional input from Timothy Lim and Phoebe Ho.
September 2016: A low number of iterations dramatically decreases the total computation time to run a DUE – Josep Perarnau shows you how to cut initialization time in half by using a subset instead of the full path assignment result file.
August 2016: Most users are familiar with creating their own attributes within objects within an Aimsun model. Grant MacKinnon explains how you can also add a column to an object where a value is returned based on some Python Code, allowing you to calculate a value on the fly.
July 2016: Martijn Breen shows how to use the Select Link Analysis Tool and View Modes to visualise urban, regional and through traffic in Aimsun.
June 2016: Dimitris Triantafyllos explains how the Aimsun Revisions tool allows a modelling team to work within a single file, for faster and less error-prone collaboration.
TRB has appointed Mark Brackstone to its Standing Committee on Traffic Flow Theory and Characteristics.
March 2016: Marga Delgado explains how to use macro function components to produce extra outputs when executing an assignment.
