• Transport planning and traffic technology

    Optimising the movement of people and goods has always been part of our corporate DNA. Together, we can create your individual mobility concept. Rely on us for support during your entire transport planning process. Our highly qualified experts are happy to provide advice on modelling issues or on how to optimise your transport planning and traffic technology.

    From traffic reports for smaller municipalities to the coordination of the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan. From multimodal transport concepts to event traffic planning. From road network performance studies to environmental impact assessments of transport (air pollution control measures, climate protection concepts).

    Transport planning is based on reliable modelling of the present situation and its expected future development. Based on a detailed transport model in PTV Visum, we can perform all types of transport analyses, medium and long-term traffic forecasts as well as studies on the impact of measures. Our work is completely transparent and allows you to carry out the required model applications yourself.

    We also provide you with comprehensive traffic flow analysis options based on the microscopic simulation software PTV Vissim. Wherever calculation methods might reach their limits, for example when dealing with complex transport facilities, the introduction of fast cycle paths or public transport priorities, the software’s scientifically based motion models provide realistic modelling of all actors involved. PTV Viswalk  can also be used for tailored simulations and the optimisation of pedestrian flows, e.g. as they occur at sports stadiums, event venues, large public transport stops and train stations.

    We provide consulting support in the following areas ...

    • Strategic master plans & concepts
    • Transport planning for events
    • Mobility-related climate concepts & environmental concepts
    • Performance studies
    • Forecasts and scenarios
    • Intermodal transport concepts
    • Transport modelling & traffic forecasts
    • Traffic simulation
    • Pedestrian simulation & pedestrian flow analysis
  • The core of our work lies in impact assessment. This means that we investigate measures, concepts and ideas as well as their impact on currently relevant aspects. Examples thereof would be the impact on CO2 emissions, fine dust particles, air pollutants or driving performance and similar factors – basically on any parameters relevant to traffic and the environment.
