September 14-18

Our most popular training course, this is a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of building a model in Aimsun Next, with a focus on simulation at the microscopic level.

This course will take you all the way through the workflow of a typical project, from editing to traffic management, scenarios, outputs and calibration. There are hands-on exercises every step of the way to make sure you have mastered the basic concepts and you should finish this course ready to start experimenting with Aimsun Next software.

Day 1

Editing exercises

Geometry

Signal plans

Public transport

Traffic demand

Managing scenarios

Dynamic scenarios, experiments and replications

Attribute overrides and geometry configurations

Day 2

Outputs

Output calculation

Time series, thematic maps

Scenario comparison

Dynamic traffic assignment

Cost functions

Stochastic route choice algorithm and parameters

Dynamic user equilibrium algorithm and parameters

Combining paths

Day 3

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.

Day 1

Mesoscopic network loading

Mesoscopic vehicle behavior

Calibration of a mesoscopic model

Hybrid microscopic-mesoscopic simulation

Macroscopic modeling

Static traffic assignment

Traversal demand calculation

Demand adjustment
