PTV Talks: "Survey Says!"- Microsimulation Model Calibration - Where are we at?
Join us as we discuss the state-of-the-practice of microsimulation model calibration. PTV recently conducted a survey questionnaire on the topic of calibration in microsimulation modeling and received nearly 300 responses from industry professionals! Gain insights and learn what others are doing. Select industry guidance will also be discussed. This PTV Talks will be an extension of a recent discussion that we hosted as part of ITE’s Virtual Drop-in Sessions on May 27th.

PTV Drive-in: SimCert - Rating Environment Simulation Solutions 
Environment simulation software has become a major part in the development of ADAS and Autonomous Driving systems. This growing market provides numerous solutions, offerings, and new features. So, identifying good candidates for one's own use cases has become a challenge. SimCert aims to address this issue by providing independent, impartial reviews of open source and commercial tools along a unified list of criteria. In this free webinar, we will provide for the first time a close insight into this project, and discuss your questions live.

Marius Dupuis is the founder and owner of SimCert, and a consultant of ADAS and autonomous driving. He has over 25 years’ experience in simulation for flight, railroad and automotive systems. In 1996 Marius co-founded VIRES, a provider of environment simulation solutions, including traffic and sensor models. He is the co-author of simulation data standards  OpenDRIVE,  OpenCRG and  OpenSCENARIO, and the co-founder of GEONATIVES - a geodata and simulation think-tank.

Air quality: Mobility solutions that make cities prosper
Climate change pushes governments and cities to change course on air quality, including in the field of mobility. But which policies reduce emissions and which fail? What technologies actually change the air we breathe?

In this free webinar, top experts will discuss the hot mobility trends for air quality, including low-emissions zones, electrification, and what it takes to engineer better air quality.

Bicycle and corona: Did the traffic revolution happen?
During the global pandemic, many cities encouraged bicycle use and invested heavily in bike-friendly infrastructure. That resulted in rising bicycle sales and more people opting for the two-wheel mobility. But as many parts of the world emerge from lockdowns, will this trend continue?

In this free webinar, top mobility experts discuss the changes affecting bicycle users, and what they mean for urban and traffic planning. We will also answer your questions about biking during these challenging times for transportation.

PTV Drive-in:
Virtual evaluation of AVs’ introduction to public transport 
Autonomous vehicles (AV) have the potential to offer significant benefits when deployed for public transport. However, as they share the road infrastructure with existing public transport and other vehicles, cities must consider advances in road infrastructure additionally to advances in vehicle technology and intelligent transport systems (ITS). In this free webinar, we will highlight the necessary design changes to existing bus stops to accommodate AVs. To implement this, we leverage a microscopic traffic simulation model by PTV Vissim software. We will also discuss results that show the impact on traffic performance.
