Aimsun Next Training Course: Multi-tier & Calibration, Barcelona

May 7-8, 2020

Multi-tier & Calibration

Course language: English

This course zooms out from microscopic simulation to look at larger scale modeling. You’ll learn about the event-based mesoscopic model and how to combine it with a more detailed time-sliced microsimulator.

Then you’ll get to experiment with static macroscopic modelling, which is often used as a preliminary step to dynamic modeling to extract the demand of a subarea from a regional model, to adjust and time-slice it, and to get an initial set of paths to warm-start dynamic assignment.



Morning session: 09:15–13:15 (including a 15-min break)
Afternoon session: 14:00–17:30 (including a 15-min break)
