Explore the future of mobility with us at ITS Europe in Strasbourg

See how PTV Group can completely change what’s possible. We are excited to show you at ITS Europe 2017 (19-22 June, 2017) all the things that can be done when you move beyond the borders of mobility.

What can you expect at the PTV booth?
Equip yourself with mobility tools, and then prepare to step into the future where we show you what it can look like. Predicting the future can be perilous, but that’s why we’re here to help shape it. Plan and simulate smart cities of the future with our tools and then learn how you can implement these simulations in the real world.


Our product experts will be at the booth to help work through what you want to achieve. PTV offers smart software and components for cities and system integrators through adaptive signal control, real-time traffic management, virtual reality and Mobility as a Service.

Look into the future with PTV Mobility Lab as it provides city representatives with access to a full body of traffic planning and optimization experience. It enables any city around the world to plan future measures and simulate potential impact.

Blur the line between what’s real and what’s computer-generated.

Check out the driving simulator to experience what the future of mobility would look like from inside a vehicle and see how autonomous and conventional vehicles interact with the simulator vehicle.

In conjunction with this year’s theme ‘ITS Beyond Borders’, we at PTV Group have some exciting topics to share during the event. Join our discussion panels with PTV experts on the helm to discuss on mobility topics:

Executive Session: Mobility services – from transport to mobility with Miller Crockart


Summary: Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is one of the hottest topics in intelligent transport. But with very few live schemes, it’s currently more of an aspiration than a reality. MaaS has the potential to break the traditional link between mobility and vehicle ownership. It offers the promise of ‘pure movement’, where customers tap into different modes of transport and purchase journeys on demand. But the challenges underpinning MaaS are enormous. Service providers need to deliver reliable travel in real time without controlling the means of transport. Transport providers must offer responsive services that will compete with private cars using collective or shared transport. A large dose of innovation is needed, and it’s not clear where this will come from. But whether start-ups or existing providers take the lead, the prize on offer is huge. Successful operators will learn about the entire end-to-end journey plans of their customers, creating a potential treasure trove of marketing information. So while the challenges of delivering MaaS are significant, the benefits are equally large.

Paul Speirs & Ralf Frisch: Modelling Mobility as a Service, A Case Study


Summary: Using the home of PTV Karlsruhe as a test bed study, the impact of shared mobility was analysed on the city by taking into account the level of service offered by the shared mobility product and that experienced by the customer. The impact KPIs include benefits to the city (reduced congestion, pollution, opportunities for urban realm improvements), benefits to the operator though operational requirements (fleet size, running costs, etc) and benefits to the customer.


Date: Wed., 21 June 2017 I Time: 16:00 – 17:30

Florian Weichenmeier: Application of Adaptive Signal Control in developing countries

Summary: This discussion details a case study along Lodhi Road in Delhi, India where smart network optimization was implemented using PTV Balance and Epics along a 3km long route, with six signalized intersections. Also the application of adaptive signal control in a developing country is investigated in this study.


Date: 22 June 2017 I Time: 09:00 – 10:30

Thomas Epp: SYMMON project

Summary: The project idea was to use PTV Optima as virtual detector to complement missing detector information on the street. Flows and speed calculated by PTV Optima are sent to the traffic control system, which does the signal plan selection, based on a rule set.
