PTV Vissim: Paving the road to self-driving technology

Tongji University in Shanghai, China

Estimated Reading Time: 4 minutes

Thanks to the technology behind PTV Vissim, the microscopic simulation software is capable of simulating autonomous vehicles depicting their own motion characteristics and their interaction with other connected or non-connected vehicles. We speak to Prof. Dr.… Read more

PTV Epics in PTV Vissim – model based local traffic signal control for public transport prioritisation (with free demo version)

PTV Epics is specifically designed to reduce traffic planning effort.

The cars had begun stacking up at the intersection, and there is no turning back. Traffic congestion is a big problem for everyone, especially within the city. But what can be done? Maybe take a second off at the red-light timer?Read more

Modelling cableway operations with PTV Vissim and PTV Viswalk

We usually associate cableways with transporting people in areas with rough terrain, for overcoming large height differences or as a tourist attraction. However, for a few years now they have increasingly been used as a means of urban transport. And exactly like classic means of transport such as buses, cars and trams, they and their passengers can be modelled with the microsimulation software PTV Vissim and the microscopic pedestrian simulation tool PTV Viswalk.Read more

Streamline your traffic studies with OpenRoads ConceptStation and PTV Vissim

Discover how combining Bentley’s OpenRoads ConceptStation with PTV VISSIM provides a competitive advantage.

In September this year, Bentley Systems announced OpenRoads ConceptStation, a conceptual modeling application that empowers highway engineering professionals to quickly create conceptual road and bridge models in a matter of hours – not days.Read more

Visualising traffic models with the new 3D network view of PTV Visum 16

The new releases of PTV Visum, PTV Vissim and PTV Viswalk, the world’s leading software solutions for macroscopic traffic modelling and microscopic traffic and pedestrian simulation, are now available and set new standards for assignment, visualisation and user-friendliness, and run faster than ever before.Read more

5 modes of transport with 200 people each – focussing on space usage

Do you remember our blog post “5 modes of transport with 200 people each – FLOW of people” and the accompanying simulation video we published in April 2016? In that video we showed, how much time 200 people need to pass a stop line – using different modes.Read more

5 modes of transport with 200 people each – why 200?

200 people passing a traffic light by tram, car, bus, bike and foot

200 people each pass a traffic light in different modes. Which mode will be the first to leave the signal behind? That is a question we tried to answer with a simulation video and a blog post in April 2016 as part of the motivation for the research project FLOW.Read more
