TSS-Transport Simulation Systems is here at the ITS World Congress to highlight the Aimsun Online decision support solution for traffic management. This simulation-based, real-time solution is the backbone of the award-winning Interstate 15 Integrated Corridor Management System led by the San Diego Association of Governments, and also the Grand Lyon pilot site for the Opticities project in France.

Aimsun Online uses live data feeds and simulations to dynamically forecast traffic conditions based on the current state of the network. This dynamic evaluation process allows it to anticipate the consequences of a variety of traffic management actions on the network over the following critical 15 or 30 minutes. Rather than react to incidents and congestion as they happen, Aimsun Online allows traffic control room operators to take the right pre-emptive steps to prevent system breakdown.

TSS will also be highlighting the application of Aimsun’s dynamic mesoscopic traffic simulator to emergency response plans and the management of large-scale evacuations, a topic that will be the subject of a presentation by Josep Maria Aymamí, TSS Regional Manager - Business Development.

“Whether for nuclear or terrorist evacuations scenarios or any variety of natural disaster, the evacuation process is inherently dynamic with chaos and instability,” Aymamí points out. “That’s why models require the details of the movement of vehicles and people, as well as the topography within the emergency planning zones, in order to realistically represent the situation as it evolves. Aimsun has the flexibility to accept any input and constraint and obtain the best set of response strategies, even in real time,” Aymamí added.
