ITS World Congress 2023: PTV showcases innovative and integrated technology for a smart & sustainable mobility

  • New cost-effective and hassle-free solution for real-time traffic management: PTV Flows
  • Dedicated panels and presentations within the congress program
  • Company’s experts available for meetings at the booth #BC01

Karlsruhe 05 October 2023. As part of Umovity, PTV Group will be at ITS World Congress 2023 in Suzhou, China, with primary focus on real-time traffic management and the smart use of data. From October 16 to 20, the market leader for mobility software will present its innovative and integrated technology for real-time data analysis, visualization, modelling, and simulation. These cutting-edge solutions empower cities and traffic planners to plan mobility for a better future.

At the Umovity booth #BC01 visitors will gain insights into the next generation of traffic management, designed to enhance traffic flow, increase capacity, and bolster road safety and sustainability. Alongside PTV Optima, PTV’s flagship product successfully deployed in cities such as Taichung, Vienna, and Rome, the software provider will introduce PTV Flows. The new, cost-effective cloud tool can visualize incidents in the road network and forecast unexpected congestion up to 2 hours in advance without access to advanced traffic management infrastructures or detectors.

Among PTV's showcase items at the congress, attendees can explore PTV Vissim, the world's foremost multimodal traffic simulation software. Trusted by traffic planners and engineers around the globe, it also plays a pivotal role in virtual testing and microscopic traffic simulation in the automotive sector. This includes critical tasks like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) testing and the development of connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) technologies.
