Dynameq
Traffic simulation software your city can plan on
Simulate and visualize operational traffic studies with a single, consistently detailed simulation platform for your entire city.

Vehicle-based Traffic Simulation and DTA

Dynameq is a vehicle-based traffic simulation and dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) that combines mesoscopic and microscopic properties to create traffic simulation fit for planning your city. Dynameq provides scalability from a single congested corridor to an entire city, all without losing detail. Vehicle trajectories over the entire network provide the transparency needed to understand exactly what is happening in the network, wherever and whenever it matters.

3D, 360° Simulation Playback

Seeing is believing. Immersive, interactive simulation playback brings stunning clarity to traffic simulations, from individual vehicles to bottlenecks to route diversion on parallel corridors. Illuminate vehicle route choice in a few clicks and understand how traffic patterns change across the city. Storyboard and share animations with production-quality video recording.


One Model, Many Applications

Detail at Scale. One platform for consistent city-wide traffic planning, from site impact and signal operations to off-corridor diversion and large-scale impacts.

The right tools, from a single corridor to an entire city

Performance

Spend more time designing solutions and evaluating alternatives. Dynameq is optimized for 64-bit computing, high-performance CPUs and discrete graphics (GPU) allowing you to work with larger simulations and more heavily congested networks.

Future-year demand? No problem

When you want to run demand scenarios reaching out ten, twenty, or thirty years, Dynameq’s assignment methodology provides converged and stable solutions. Rather than seeing gridlocked conditions, you’ll see outputs indicating critical bottlenecks, showing where to direct your attention for fast and efficient model development and calibration.

Signal timings

Use Dynameq’s signal plan generator to produce signals for future scenarios or to fill in missing information from existing signal plans. The signal plan generator can design phases, compute timing parameters and define and synchronize corridors.

Toll modelling toolkit

Dynameq’s generalized-cost assignment makes it easy to create fixed or time-of-day tolls by vehicle class. APIs provide a flexible approach for implementing dynamic, congestion-dependent tolling strategies.

Reliable route choice

Dynameq dynamic user equilibrium (DUE) routing reflects how drivers make decisions based on day-to-day learning and experienced travel times by anticipating congestion on alternative routes.

Transit signal priority and preemption

Dynameq explicitly models transit-actuated signal priority and preemption using early/late green and phase insertion logic.

Streamlined network development

Dynameq streamlines the process of preparing your network in a multitude of ways with robust import/export modules, advanced defaults, intelligent editing functions for intersections and ramps, and much more.

What can you do with Dynameq?
Citywide Planning

A city, regional or wide area DTA based model provides a unique ability to understand and evaluate not only individual projects, but cumulative systemwide impacts. Download the City of Edmonton Case study to see the range of project analysis supported with their citywide Dynameq model

Construction Planning

Evaluate project-specific and/or systematic work-zone related congestion impacts, validate mitigation strategies to support comprehensive transportation management plans.

Tolling

Dynameq’s generalized-cost assignment makes it easy to implement fixed or time-of-day tolls by vehicle class. Evaluate variable pricing schemes like HOT lanes with customizable APIs for real-time simulation access. Dynameq models have been used to support investment grade toll studies.

Transit

Evaluate transit focused developments such as BRT and LRT, along with their impacts both on- and off-corridor, with a suite of features including transit system priority and preemption.

Improve Traffic Flow

Understand traffic breakdowns and identify innovative, cost-efficient solutions to reduce and eliminate bottlenecks. A well-formulated Dynameq model forms the backbone for a comprehensive decision support system.

Freeways and Active Traffic Management

Evaluate a wide range of freeway management strategies such as ramp metering, variable speed limits, and hard shoulder running.
