Air quality and climate change are becoming an important topic in traffic studies. Apart from traffic flow KPIs, hopefully, emissions will soon be a standard output of different planning scenarios, so that air quality is considered in the decision-making process.
PTV Vissim now enables you to predict the impact of traffic measures on emissions. To get the best emissions data for your PTV Vissim simulation, we partnered with Bosch. Precise emissions calculations from Bosch can now be integrated in your traffic simulations.

Hello, I’m Jochen from PTV Group.

Air quality and climate change are becoming an important topic in traffic studies.

Apart from traffic flow KPIs, I hope emissions will soon be a standard output of different planning scenarios, so that air quality is considered in the decision-making process.

PTV Vissim now enables you to predict the impact of traffic measures on emissions.

To get the best emissions data for your Vissim simulation, we partnered with Bosch. Precise emissions calculations from Bosch can now be integrated in your traffic simulations.

I’d like to share with you how easy it is to do that.

You just need to define or preload emission classes, for example “Germany 2022”, and activate the emission evaluations. You can then use the standard evaluation features in Vissim to visualize them like other traffic flow KPIs.

It is that simple but gives your simulations much added value.

PTV Vissim 2022 is now available for download. And we’d love to get your feedback – so let’s chat at the Vissim Users Forum on LinkedIn.
