• Discover the functionalities of PTV Optima

    Efficient traffic management is more than steering traffic away from incidents after an accident has occurred or lanes have been closed due to construction works. Instead, it is about having a response plan ready before it is even needed. With PTV Optima, traffic operators rely on sophisticated simulations and models, high-quality data and precise forecasts. In short: They are optimally prepared for every incident.

    • Reliable predictions that replace the guesswork

      Early alerts for potential congestion events make all the difference. No matter if it’s an unplanned incident in your network or the rush hour reoccurring every working day, PTV Optima allows traffic operators to envisage traffic conditions before they unfold. The software’s perfect compatibility with the Public Transport Estimated Time of Arrival module and the dynamic routing engine for multi-modal journey planning, HyperPath, makes it is easy for traffic operator to provide end-user with real-time traffic information.

    • Accurate real-time analyses of your network’s traffic conditions

      PTV Optima stands for active traffic management combining real-time data with a statistical approach to continuously monitor your roadways. It connects to an unlimited number of traffic data sources and delivers reliable and precise estimations, even for roads without detector information. It produces a coherent and detailed picture of the current traffic capacity.

    • Analyse all road users and their interactions in real-time and at the most granular level

      Public transport, pedestrians and motorised private transport – PTV Optima’s microsimulation enables operators to model and test different traffic scenarios, analyse the interaction of all road users and therefore manage traffic capacities and flows more effectively. Precise microscopic simulations help you define the best strategy for public transport prioritisation schemes, ramp metering, managed lanes and pedestrian flows.

    • Control signal timings and prioritise traffic modes

      By connecting PTV Optima with the traffic-adaptive signal control systems PTV Epics and PTV Balance, you orchestrate traffic lights at single intersections and across multiple nodes. This helps ease congestion and unexpected jams, or tailbacks caused by stop-and-go traffic. While PTV Epics determines the best control options for single nodes, PTV Balance covers your entire network to create dynamic green waves reducing waiting and travel times, emissions and noise.

    • Simulate and evaluate alternative traffic scenarios to identify the best counter measure

      The PTV Optima traffic management and decision support software uses your customised performance indicators to measure the effectiveness of different strategies. Formulate intervention strategies offline, for example in PTV Visum, and assess them in PTV Optima's online environment, based on the live traffic conditions, before they hit the streets.

    • Integrate real-time traffic management into existing system architecture

      Supported industry interfaces and developer-friendly API allow seamless and flexible integration into your intelligent traffic management solutions. PTV Optima’s graphical user interface, Traffic Supervisor, ensures an intuitive and customisable usability. It is designed to optimally assist traffic operators in their daily work consolidating all information on one screen to display and manage complex events over the entire network – efficiently and effectively.
