PTV Talks: The Impact of E-Commerce on Urban Congestion
Since e-commerce is expected to grow 67% in the next four years, large cities are targeting deliveries in order to reduce urban congestion and emissions.

As a result, the Canadian Postal Corporation has tasked PTV Group and Deloitte with studying urban logistics, traffic modeling, network utilization, and sustainability in order to predict and improve the future of e-commerce deliveries.

Suburbia no more: reviving Main Street
For decades, residents of suburban towns relied on cars for their daily travels. But new designs and technologies are challenging this concept.

In this webinar, we discuss modern urban planning that encourages walking and bicycle riding in car-dependent communities. Can they succeed?

A streetcar named redesign: the future of public transport
Public transport is the lifeline for billions of people worldwide. Yet, its future is increasingly in question: first from private vehicles, then from on-demand services, and most recently by virus-related health concerns. But given its role in combating congestion and even climate change, public transport remains a crucial part of daily life.

In this webinar, we investigate how the pandemic and other trends are affecting rails, metros and buses – and check exciting concepts that will change how we use them..

PTV Talks: Vehicle-in-Loop Experiments of Optimal Automated Driving in Mixed Traffic
Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) are marketed for their increased safety, driving comfort, and time saving capabilities. Coupled with easier access to information via connected technologies, they also offer unprecedented opportunities for energy efficient driving by better anticipation and planning of upcoming traffic events – leading to reduced braking. Additionally, the interaction between automation and human drivers plays a key role in the efficiency of emergent scenarios in mixed traffic.

This talk will provide an overview of frameworks to interface CAV control schemes and on road experimentation within PTV’s Vissim traffic microsimulation software. This is then used to highlight the energy and traffic efficiency potentials of connected and automated vehicles based on first principles of motion, optimal control theory, and practical examples from our previous and ongoing research. We present microsimulation and experimental results from a US Department of Energy funded project in which we explore the impact of anticipative vehicle guidance on energy and traffic efficiency of CAVs and surrounding human-driven vehicles. The benefits are shown in simulated scenarios of single and multi-lane highway traffic, as well as shown in a novel vehicle-in-the-loop experiment of an emergent highway scenario with virtual traffic surrounding a real-vehicle on a test track as conducted through PTV Vissim.

PTV Talks: Using the Pillar Diagram in modeling new and emerging CAV features
Current literature on connected and automated vehicles (CAV) reveals that most CAV-related research falls into one of the following categories:

1. CAV-inspired analytical methods
2. Research using readily-available features in simulation tools
3. Research using scripting or programming in simulation tools
4. Research using proprietary simulation tools

While the majority of practitioners use simulation to assess the benefits of CAVs, they can quickly get overwhelmed with the pace of development of CAV-related features and their representations in simulation tools. In this talk, we present a newly developed framework (with a focus on the Pillar diagram) that is intended to help practitioners and researchers using simulation to address their specific project requirements. Using this framework, users can evaluate the features of simulation tools and approach how to augment them with programming and scripting when needed. An example of an eco-drive application in VISSIM is presented to illustrate the methodology in more detail.

Dawn of the citizen-centered mobility
The most dramatic revolution in transportation for over a century is happening now, driven by our smartphones: data technology is transforming all forms of mobility in cities, creating solutions tailored for each of us.

In this free webinar, we discuss tech-driven transport in ‘smart cities’, how it changes passengers and cities – and what mobility planners can do to optimize it.

Take a deep breath: the battle for clean air
With more cars on the roads than ever before, air quality in many urban areas is decreasing. This endangers people and contributes to climate change.

In this free webinar, we discuss how cities around the world combat emissions from transportation, how the auto industry reacts to this challenge, and whether alternative mobility modes will end air pollution soon.

regiomove - Alles außer beamen. Das intermodale Mobilitätsprojekt für Karlsruhe und die Region
Das Pilotprojekt "regiomove" soll den Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund (KVV) zum Mobilitätsverbund für die Technologieregion transformieren. Dazu werden bestehende Mobilitätsangebote sowohl innerhalb der Städte als auch mit denen des Umlandes vernetzt. Egal ob Bahn, Bus, Leihfahrrad oder Carsharing. Egal ob physisch mit Mobilitätsstationen oder digital per App. Alles aus einer Hand. Dr. Frank Pagel, Leiter des Projekts, Tim Wörle (Karlsruhe Institut für Technologie) und Tanja Schäfer (PTV Group) geben Einblicke in den Projektverlauf und erste Ergebnisse.

Hyperpath: percorsi in città sicuri e sostenibili per tutti
Hyperpath è un cercapercorso pensato per le città che vogliono offrire ai viaggiatori soluzioni di viaggio intermodali. In questo webinar presenteremo casi d’uso concreti, come ad esempio spostamenti con i mezzi pubblici che evitano assembramenti o percorsi sicuri per le biciclette. Vedremo inoltre come il cercapercorso permette di elaborare percorsi misti, combinando più mezzi di trasporto, e di stimare l'impatto ambientale dei diversi percorsi a seconda deli mezzoi di trasporto utilizzatoi.
