Karlsruhe / Los Angeles, 13 September 2022. PTV Group, the world’s leading producer of mobility software, will present ground-breaking solutions for real-time traffic management and smart use of data, at the upcoming ITS World Congress 2022 in Los Angeles.  

Between September 18-22, PTV Group will present at the Congress its innovative technology for cities and traffic planners. This technology supports better mobility through real-time data analysis, visualization, modeling, and simulation. 

At booth 1539, PTV Group invites visitors to discover how next-generation traffic management in cities improves road safety, air quality, and sustainability. Future-oriented cities like Vienna, Rome and Taichung already rely on PTV’s real-time technology, which combines innovative machine learning and dynamic traffic modelling. Thanks to this combination, operators manage the entire traffic network and make accurate traffic forecasts up to 60 minutes in advance.  

PTV's booth is located directly opposite the booth of its partner Econolite (#1439). PTV and Econolite joined forces in March 2022 under the umbrella of a new formed holding. In L.A., visitors can now profit from the numerous synergies between the two companies in terms of smart and sustainable mobility solutions. Together, PTV and Econolite will also host a happy hour on Wednesday, September 21 at 4:30 pm.
