More detailed visual treatments and higher-performance simulation playback makes it easier to visually examine any aspect of a traffic simulation, from individual vehicles and signal timing to bottlenecks and route diversion on parallel corridors.

Dynameq City-Scale Traffic Simulation Software

New path displays clearly illustrate trajectories through the entire network at the lane-level. See it in action here.

Dynameq Path Selections

Improved vehicle selection modes let you quickly identify groups of vehicles by location and screenline and drill-down to view path choice and vehicle details.

Dynameq 4.1 Release

New GPU settings and optimizations allow high-performance city-wide traffic simulation playback and new windowing tools let you analyze a moment in time or region of the network in seconds.

Dynameq 4.1 - windowing

Storyboard simulation playback to smoothly animate camera position, then share animations with production-quality video recording straight to MP4 or WebM formats.

Dynameq 4.1 Release Storyboarding

Import 3D Buildings from OpenStreetMap (OSM) and display them with adjustable height for context that doesn't obscure simulation details. Use new legend overlays, and an entirely new animation window design.

Dynameq City-Scale Traffic Simulation

Improved data management tools. Turn alignment editing in the node diagram now allows drag-and-drop for easier editing of lane alignments. New functions in the Network Calculator help compute aggregated values and the Matrix Calculator now lets you define result matrices in-line. Import new scenarios from SATURN.

A new control plan type and improvements to the Simulation API provide ability to customize ramp metering and other adaptive signal control applications.

Speed contour plots now have deeper customization options, and time series windows support a second value on the right Y-axis for simultaneous display of multiple values.

Matrix operations are optimized so that loading, saving, validating, importing/exporting are faster, and all matrices now have units for either flow rates, volume, time, distance or user-defined values.
