Simulating with Aimsun Next

27-29 May 2019, Adelaide, South Australia

Adelaide Aimsun Next
 

Sign up now for this three-day training course in Adelaide, SA, from Monday 27th May to Wednesday 29th May, 2019.

The course opens with a special extra public session (1 h 30 min) hosted by the South Australian Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), introducing participants to the Metropolitan Adelaide Traffic Simulation and Assessment Model (MATSAM) Traffic Simulation Model Development Guidelines in Aimsun Next. We’ll be discussing the role of transport modelling and the interface between MATSAM and the Metropolitan Adelaide Strategic Transport Evaluation Model (MASTEM).

The course that follows is aimed at both new users of Aimsun Next and users who wish to refresh or extend their skills in microscopic and mesoscopic simulations.
