New capability for active travel microsimulation modelling

The latest version of Paramics transport planning software tool has functionality to simulate behaviour across more modes of transport to better reflect how we use our road infrastructure

24 April 2023


The latest version of SYSTRA’s state of the art and industry standard microsimulation modelling software Paramics Discovery 26 now includes cyclist modelling and pedestrian visualisation capability.

Paramics has been reproducing real world traffic conditions by simulating travel behaviour on a user-defined road network for motorised transport modes since 1996. The latest version Paramics Discovery 26 includes active travel modes for the first time and has been designed to enable transport professionals to design, evaluate and present transport and mobility solutions.

Paramics Discovery 26 can be used to test a wide variety of transport planning interventions simply and quickly, including assessing the impact of increased traffic on a road network, new junctions and infrastructure, changes to traffic signal control, public transport operations, roadworks and event planning.

The intuitive software also enables transport planners to assess both economic and environmental impact from their proposed interventions including cycling and walking to public transport and private motorised modes.  

SYSTRA Managing Director Consultancy, Sébastien Dupont said, “We are incredibly excited to reveal Paramics Discovery 26. We listened to our clients, colleagues and authorities around the globe who expressed a strong interest for sustainable transport modes to help their detailed transport planning and appraisal programmes. With Paramics Discovery 26 we have equipped authorities with an intelligent tool to support the transition to NetZero. We hope you like it as much as we do.” 

SYSTRA Digital Director, Malcolm Calvert said, “Two years in development, and we are absolutely delighted to release Paramics Discovery 26. As towns and cities throughout the globe are witnessing a massive return on investment by dedicating more road space to active travel modes, our improved software will for the first time allow authorities to envisage thriving local economies and test how best to reach their carbon reduction targets.”
