Technical Note #1

February 2014

Aimsun 8 introduces four new control statistics for turns:

1. Green Percentage

2. Red Percentage

3. Effective Green (in seconds)

4. Effective Red (in seconds)

You can now not only consult the statistics but also see them using your preferred view style.

Aimsun 8 has a new feature called ‘Diagram View Style’ which allows you to customise your view styles using objects like histograms, stacked histograms, pie charts etc.

For example, if you want to incorporate a pie chart showing the red and green percentages at each turn, the result is the view mode shown in Figure 2.

You can obtain the pie chart view style shown in Figure 2 using the settings in the Main dialog box shown below in Figure 3.
