In our globalized world, people's mobility behavior has changed dramatically in recent years. Increasing mobility, both in individual transport and public transport, leads to growth rates in traffic flows, which have an equal impact on all parties involved. In addition to the growing number of road users and modes of transport, noise pollution and pollutant emissions are increasing in cities. Transport and urban planners are thus faced with new challenges that they are trying to master with appropriate measures.
In this context, methods for evaluating transport systems are used to calculate various traffic parameters and to identify the macroeconomic consequences of the various possible measures at an early stage, i.e. before they are implemented. The evaluation results form an important basis for the subsequent decision processes as to which measure(s) will ultimately be implemented.
Over the years, we have developed a variety of evaluation methods ranging from individual transport modes to entire urban transport systems, maintenance programs or improvement of resilience. This enables us to calculate traffic effects and to evaluate individual measures economically.
