Why companies should invest in research

Why companies should invest in research Published on September 2, 2021 Mark BrackstoneResearch Project Manager at Aimsun Did you know that Aimsun now has a dedicated Research Projects team? Created in January this year, our new team already has three members with more to join us soon.   Aimsun is already well known for developing innovative simulation software, but that’s not really the same as research. It’s perfectly possible to develop new techniques and pieces of software, but that’s q [...]

The Environmental Supermodel

The Environmental Supermodel TMAA DetoursP.64, Edition 34, June 2021 Reducing transport-related pollution is a job for everyone in the industry, and as Paul Hutton in the UK writes, a solution being perfected in the English city of Oxford could help us here in Australia. According to the European Environment Agency, transport is responsible for nearly 30 per cent of all the CO2 emissions in Europe. Of this, almost three-quarters – 72 per cent – comes from road transport. While this is a signific [...]
