PTV Drive-In: Optimal Automated Driving in Mixed Traffic

Connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) present ample opportunities for energy efficient driving by better planning. The interactions between them and human drivers play a key role in determining this efficiency. This free webinar will provide an overview of frameworks to interface CAV control schemes and on road experiments with PTV Vissim traffic simulation tool. It will highlight energy and traffic efficiency potentials of CAVs. The presenter will also discuss the impact of anticipative vehicle guidance on energy and traffic efficiency of CAVs and surrounding human-driven vehicles, resulting from a US Department of Energy funded project.

About the presenter: Ardalan Vahidi is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Clemson University, USA. His core research is on CAV and electrified vehicles, their impact on energy use and flow of mixed traffic. Prof. Vahidi held scientific visiting positions at the University of California, Berkeley, BMW Technology Office in California, and at IFP Energies Nouvelles, in France. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology.

Connecting the Countryside: Optimizing mobility in rural areas

For decades, people living in rural areas have had to rely on cars for daily trips. Public transport investment was focused on metropolitan and suburban centers, while large distances often made walking and cycling difficult. But change may be coming. In this free webinar, we highlight the technologies that make countryside mobility easier: From on-demand services, through shared transportation, to improved infrastructure. Global mobility experts in this panel will answer your questions live.

PTV Talks: The Charge EV Project- UK
Charge is an innovation project combining transport planning and electricity network planning to understand where charge points are needed, and where and how they can be connected to the electricity grid. Based in the North-West of the UK and led by SP Energy Network – the electricity network operator – the project is helping to facilitate the rollout of charging across the region. This PTV Talks session will focus on the work of the PTV team who have built and developed a set of scenario-based transport models to represent the travel patterns of future EVs and their associated requirements for public charging. A core output from the project – an interactive web-based tool hosting the project outputs will also be demoed.

Commuter or consumer? How data-driven mobility transforms the world
Data is the new driving force in mobility: With smart devices everywhere, almost every movement we make is being recorded, analyzed, and used in some way.
In this free webinar, mobility experts discuss the far-reaching implications of data-driven mobility: How should authorities use data to optimize mobility? What kind of data fits to which community and transport operator? And can all of us be assured that data of our movements is in safe hands?

PTV Drive-in: Scenario Mining for ADAS/AV Development
Development of ADAS/AV functions involves testing them in realistic conditions, as if the vehicles encounter real-life traffic. Creating such “real life traffic” in a test environment can be done with scenario testing, which involves scenario creation and variation. This free webinar will show how to do both by using advanced traffic simulation – leading to the speed-up of the ADAS/AV development. We will also demonstrate how simulations are used for scenario mining.

This webinar will be presented by Jochen Lohmiller, Principal Product Manager at PTV Group; and Isaac Gordillo Vargas, Project Manager at PTV Group.

PTV Visum Safety​ - Previsione degli incidenti nella città di Ravenna​
PTV Visum Safety è lo strumento PTV per analizzare i dati sugli incidenti e pianificare e ottimizzare misure di gestione efficaci. In questo webinar vedremo un'applicazione specifica del software sul caso della città di Ravenna: durante la demo la nostra modellista dei trasporti Arbra Bardhi ci mostrerà come il software permette di visualizzare in modo chiaro i dati sugli incidenti, identificare i "black spot" e realizzare previsioni sui livelli di incidentalità.

Diesel ade:
Wie Sie die Umstellung auf E-Busse optimal gestalten
Die Clean Vehicles Directive (CVD) der EU erfordert von Aufgabenträgern und Verkehrsunternehmen eine grundlegende strategische Neuausrichtung des Busbetriebs. Um diese erfolgreich zu gestalten, ist ein systemischer Beratungsansatz erforderlich, der neben der Fahrzeugtechnik auch die Infrastruktur und vor allem dem Betrieb als eine Einheit betrachtet und diese Subsysteme bei der Planung des E-Bus-Einsatzes genau aufeinander abstimmt.
  
Die TTK GmbH aus Karlsruhe, spezialisiert auf Ingenieur- und Beratungsdienstleistungen für den ÖPNV, hat den ganzheitlichen Beratungsansatz "TTK_E-Bus" für die Transformation von Dieselbusflotten hin zu alternativen Antriebstechnologien entwickelt. Vom ersten Workshop, über die Strategiefindung, Energiefluss-, Wirtschaftlichkeits- und Ökologieanalysen, Ladepunktfindung, Depotauslegung, Technologiewahl bis hin zu Fragestellungen der Flottenauslegung, Infrastrukturplanung, Finanzierung, Förderung, Ausschreibung und Inbetriebnahme begleitet die TTK ihre Kunden bei der Einführung von E-Bussen.
Durch das Hinzuziehen spezialisierter Partner und den integrierten Einsatz verschiedener Softwarepakete (u. a. PTV Visum) können dem Kunden maßgeschneiderte, betrieblich und wirtschaftlich optimale Lösungen entwickelt werden.
  
In diesem Webinar stellen Kilian Berthold (TTK) und Svenja Höner (TTK) Ihnen die Toolbox "TTK_E-Bus" vor und zeigen Ihnen anhand eines Anwendungsfall wie die Umsetzung in der Praxis funktioniert.
