PTV Japan

PTV Group plans and optimises everything that moves people and goods worldwide – be it transport routes, distribution structures or private and public transport. The company offers software, data, content, consulting and research. Thanks to expert knowledge in traffic and transport planning, PTV occupies a unique position.

Environmentally-compatible and cost-effective mobility requires finely-tuned coordination of flows of traffic and goods, so that people and products can reach their destinations safely and efficiently. The focus here is on road safety, climate protection and future-proof mobility concepts. PTV solutions in transport logistics, traffic planning and traffic management help to achieve this, even in real time. 

In the Logistics business field, PTV’s portfolio ranges from software for scheduling transport routes and trips to distribution planning and fleet management, including truck navigation and parking. A special online service provides real-time transparency during the transport process and across the entire supply chain. In the Traffic business field, PTV offers software, data and scientific techniques for modelling and simulating traffic networks. This helps traffic and city planners in over 120 countries to organise optimal traffic flow.

PTV's headquarters have been located in Karlsruhe – a centre of innovation and development – since the company was founded in 1979. Around 600 employees around the world are working on powerful solutions for public administration, government departments, trade and industry.

How many details are in a great plan?

The city of tomorrow is designed for unlimited mobility. This is where life pulsates and with it, the traffic. With our Vision software products, you can plan all aspects of traffic - from the entire network down to the individual nodes.

PTV Vistro for traffic engineering
 

PTV Vistro is the ideal tool for all your traffic analysis needs. Its intuitive user interface places all functions at your fingertips so that you can keep traffic flowing at the touch of a button.

PTV_Visum_Teaser.jpg
PTV Visum for transport planning and traffic engineering
 

PTV Visum is the world leading software for transport analyses, traffic forecasts and GIS-based data management. It consistently models all transport modes and their interaction and has become the standard in the field of transport planning.

PTV_Vissim_Teaser.jpg
PTV Vissim for traffic simulation
 

Cars, buses, bicycles, pedestrians and trains - they all interact with each other everyday. The powerful simulation software PTV Vissim allows planners to model the routes and interactions of all road users. It realistically simulates multimodal transport processes like no other software.

PTV Viswalk for simulation of pedestrian flows
 

They crisscross back and forth across roads, make sudden turns or stop spontaneously: Pedestrians are the most dynamic element in urban environments. PTV Viswalk is the software tool designed for pedestrian simulation.

PTV Balance for adaptive network control
 

Signal control systems are the core element of inner-city traffic control. Efficient signal timing strategies allow for optimum utilisation of the road network. PTV Balance is the ideal software tool for professional, traffic-adaptive network control.

PTV Epics for adaptive signal control of intersections and public transport prioritization
 

PTV Epics is the perfect traffic-adaptive control instrument. It was developed specially for single nodes and runs directly inside the control unit. The model-based process observes local conditions and calculates numerous control options every second. PTV Epics then uses its internal model to evaluate the different control options before applying the best one. In this process, it takes all modes of transport into account - from individual motorised transport and pedestrians to prioritising public transport.

PTV Optima for traffic monitoring and traffic forecasting
 

In order to make informed decisions, it is important for traffic planners to gain a detailed overview of the current traffic situation and get reliable traffic forecasts. PTV Optima is the ideal tool for traffic management as it provides both.

PTV_Vistad_Teaser.jpg
PTV Vistad for the qualitative collection and validation of accident data
 

The traffic accident database PTV Vistad is a state-of-the art software system for the collection, validation and analysis of accident data. The software visualises accidents on a map in seconds with just a mouse-click and nearly any detail information can be used as filter criteria.

How can you create added value from data sources?

PTV Group provides you with data and content which allow you to progress quickly and reliably. This means transport planners and managers can use data or models without having to conduct any costly and time-consuming traffic data surveys themselves. Logistics companies can analyse the impact of new road toll tariffs or determine the ideal location for a new branch office. We provide multifaceted data about and for traffic, transport, geomarketing and location intelligence – which create added value.

PTV_Traffic_Data_Teaser.jpg
Data for traffic & transport planning For advanced traffic & transport modelling
 

Excellent data are the best basis for excellent transport models. We supply data on transport networks, speed profiles, entire transport models and traffic stats which are optimised for use in our products PTV Visum and PTV Vissim.
