April 2020: Emmanuel Bert describes how our Real Data Set Consistency Checker can help you in calibration and validation tasks.
February 2020: Tessa Hayman shares three different ways to profile traffic demand that can help you build models efficiently.
January 2020: There are various scripts available in the template: Margarida Delgado explains how Script nº 10 can speed up the process of filtering and viewing signalized nodes.
January 2017: Paolo Rinelli and Dimitris Triantafyllos explain a technique for modelling connected vehicles using Aimsun API: Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control.
December 2016: Maud Chassat describes how Aimsun’s attribute overrides can be extremely useful for modifying attributes of existing objects.
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.
