Aimsun Online in award-winning San Diego ICM project
The Aimsun Online real-time decision support system for traffic management will take centre stage at the TSS-Transport Simulation Systems stand. Its dynamic, high-speed simulation of large areas allows traffic operators to accurately forecast the future network flow patterns that will result from a particular traffic management or information provision strategy.
TSS will be highlighting the fact that, among other projects, Aimsun Online is the simulation-based subsystem in the decision support system (DSS) demonstrator in the Interstate 15 Integrated Corridor Management (ICM) demonstrator project in San Diego, California. With the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) heading the San Diego ICM team, the award-winning system went live in March 2013; the project is now conducting successful ICM demonstration projects that show the benefits of ICM through improvement in corridor performance.
Due to the success of the I-15 project, FHWA/USDOT is currently evaluating new sites and corridors for the next sponsored implementations of ICM across the United States.
