Traffic data analysis
Get a detailed overview of the network status quo, to manage demand and avoid congestion and tailbacks. PTV Optima incorporates data from a huge number of sources, such as floating car data (FCD), automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), detector information, and accident and construction site updates. The traffic management software continuously compares and validates live field data, eliminates biases, fills in data blanks, and integrates these with PTV Visum dynamic models .
Replace speculations with reliable predictions with our traffic control software: PTV Optima forecasts future traffic conditions. Its unique approach combines machine learning and transportation models, to cover effectively both planned and unplanned events. Get your system up and running in less than one hour - or deploy advanced features for the most complex use cases.
Build your own performance indicators, selecting monitored area and the forecast horizon. Easily assemble your KPIs into intuitive and effective dashboards, to simplify tasks and to react quickly.
With PTV Optima, management centers improve traffic flow by simulating different scenarios and taking the right actions. The traffic management software allows operators to simulate and evaluate different mitigation strategies in a virtual environment. To steer traffic away from incidents, the model runs parallel simulations, and indicates the most effective of them. This takes only a few moments, and the results are the basis for a reliable decision.
Automation and workflows
Based on customized indicators, build workflows that simplify the actions of everyone at the control center. Automatize triggers based on custom conditions of the detected or predicted network status. Send messages to other teams, and dispatch data to systems and components.
Adaptive signal control
Traffic control software at its best: Optimize your signal control by connecting PTV Optima to PTV signal optimization tools. Optimize green waves at single intersections, andintersections and improve signal coordination in the entire network. When deployed with PTV Optima, the solution is even tolerant to detector fault.
Improve incident management by simulating traffic scenarios in real-time and on a microscopic level. Develop ramp metering and managed lane strategies to optimize your network, based on a detailed vehicle-to-vehicle interaction.
Public transport operations
Integrate PTV Optima with your public transport operation control center, to provide passengers with reliable travel information and expected delays. Monitor real-time fleet positions to determine expected delays where routes mix with private traffic. Use this traffic management system to build performance indicators and pre-identify critical points, making it easier for your operators to handle inconveniencies.
PTV Optima’s travel information empowers travel planners. The traffic management software also offers its own intermodal journey planner, combining different modes of transport in any plausible combination. Combine information from PTV Optima with travel modes in your city, so users optimize their travel choices.
Integrated traffic management system
Facilitated connectivity and seamless integration: The real-time traffic management software connects to many subsystems and functions and supports all market standards for information exchange. It has an efficient setup process with offline calibration and model validations. System integration is facilitated by traffic data sent directly from the lanes. To meet a project specification, you can integrate PTV Optima with a separate user interface or rely on its web GUI.
