PTV Model2Go Demand revolutionizes the creation of city and traffic models, as exemplified as link flows in Atlanta.

Historic traffic demand now integrated with automated model generation solution PTV Model2Go

  • PTV Model2Go Demand combines innovative model automation technology with reliable traffic flow data from TomTom
  • New process significantly reduces empirical effort.
  • Basic network and demand data for any city within a week

Karlsruhe, 13 June 2023. PTV Group, world-market leader for mobility software, launches a more sophisticated version of PTV Model2Go: PTV Model2Go Demand now combines automated model generation technology with comprehensive traffic demand data based on TomTom's analysis of trips, preferred routes and most driven streets throughout time. The new cloud-based solution provides users such as public agencies, consulting companies or research institutions with a basic transportation model for any city or region worldwide in as little as one week.

The Model2Go process combines smart automation technology with details about the origin and destination (OD) travel demand for any desired area. The travel demand matrices are powered by TomTom's trustworthy, scalable and reliable traffic data, covering on average 10% to 30% of the total car road traffic. This new product saves users the need to collect data empirically, which is expensive and time consuming. The OD trip data are precise, yet anonymized and compliant with data privacy regulations such as GDPR.

Transportation planning extended in the most optimal manner

"As we delve into Model2Go, we've introduced a true game-changer in the realm of urban and transportation planning," said Christian U. Haas, the CEO of PTV Group. "By integrating the latest captured travel demand data, we've taken our out-of-the-box models to new heights."

“TomTom is proud to achieve another milestone together with PTV Group in our 10-year successful partnership,” said Mike Schoofs, Chief Revenue Officer, TomTom. "Model2Go is an impressive development for urban planners and consultants, and with scalable and reliable traffic data coming from TomTom, it’s poised to enable better decision-making around mobility and transportation.”

The utilization of standardized widely available data opens a plethora of use cases and evaluations, such as multimodal transport accessibility, select link / flow bundle analysis, location planning studies, and a wide range of common traffic and mobility analyses.

Resource-saving technology for modern mobility planning

PTV Model2Go revolutionizes the process of building basic transport models for any city or region worldwide, accomplishing it within a mere week. Users across various sectors, including public agencies, industry, and research, receive a ready-made foundation to develop simple and intricate modeling uses for their needs. Through a cloud-based approach, this innovative system combines intelligent automation technology with diverse data sources. Consequently, automated model creation becomes faster, more cost-effective, resource-efficient, and notably less prone to errors.

The initial release, PTV Model2Go Supply, already encompasses a wide range of transportation modes. It includes the road network along with key parameters like route types, speeds, and capacities. Furthermore, it incorporates the public transport network, timetables, points of interest, as well as generated traffic cells and structural data. This comprehensive model can be promptly utilized for analysis and visualization in modern mobility planning upon delivery.

Linkedin Live Session
