PTV Austria

The central platform for traffic & transport in Austria and Eastern Europe.

At PTV Austria, we can assist you in all matters concerning transport planning and optimisation. We also seek to ensure the best use of resources.

We provide public sector clients and planners in Austria and numerous countries of Eastern and South Eastern Europe with cutting-edge software technology, consulting services and training. 

Since 2006, PTV Austria GmbH has been developing and implementing innovative, customised solutions for the private and public transport sectors. The wholly owned subsidiary of PTV Group is headquartered in Vienna. 

We believe in the power of continually broadening our knowledge and skills to shape the mobility of the future. That is why we are involved in research projects and maintain close ties to our academic & research partners.

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 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 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.

How can the software provide competitive advantage?

Existing IT solutions can do more – if you can pass them the right tool. Out components enable you to integrate geographic and logistic functions in your own application or in the corporate network modularly, flexibly scalable and individually. 

PTV xServer Client-server architecture for distributed applications

PTV xServers allow you to integrate geographical and logistical functions into your company's IT structures, mobile solutions, web applications and client-server architectures.

PTV Mapserver Desktop software for local applications

Integrate digital maps, itineraries and other geographic functionalities into your desktop software solution. Or extend your software product with useful features. PTV Mapserver provides the full range of digital map functionalities.

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.

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.
