PTV Group selected as a sub-contractor to the Consortium enabling Intelligent Transportation System for Ashghal’s RMC

Doha, Qatar, 02.07.2019. PTV Group, a market leader in traffic and logistics software solutions, announced that they are appointed as a sub-contractor to the Consortium selected by Ashghal for its project to design, build and implement an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) software solution for the Roads Management Centre (RMC). The ITS software solution will seamlessly integrate all the currently separate road sub-systems making the RMC the central hub of all monitoring, operation and management within Qatar.

PTV Group will provide software for micro simulation and traffic forecasting. PTV will collect available GPS data and extract speeds that can be used for simulation and real-time and mid-term forecasts, for the whole Qatar network. PTV software will also be used to calculate Estimated Time of Arrivals (ETA) of public transport services at stops, as well as transfer alerts on stops where transfer time exceeds given threshold, due to delays. Software programmes that will be used for this project are PTV Optima, PTV Visum and PTV Vissim.

Andrea Petti, managing director, PTV Group MENA, says: “We are proud to be part of this prestigious project.  Our software programmes offer an extensive range of dedicated features and detailed modelling possibilities. We will implement real-time model-based solutions and microsimulation modelling to assist in managing and monitoring the roads under the responsibility of the Roads Management Centre (RMC). We will deliver this with the highest standards of efficiency, keeping in mind the long terms goals of RMC for World Cup in 2022 and, more importantly, in line with Qatar Vision 2030.”

The project brings together world leaders in technology with proven expertise in their respective fields worldwide to accomplish the challenging and ambitious project, with SWARCO and KBAS responsible for delivering the project with sub-contractors PTV Group, Transpo Group, Qmic and Mannai Trading Co. L.L.C.

This exciting and innovative project will ensure smooth performance and management of the road networks in Qatar following the final delivery of software. Moreover, it will leave a legacy in the form of an Innovation Centre which will be developed as part of the solution, which will be connected to the core RMC software for development and testing for future technologies, and for training purposes.
