International Transport Forum 2017: PTV Group presents new solutions for mobility of the future

Ministers of transport from over 50 countries discuss regulatory changes in the transport sector

Karlsruhe/Leipzig, 29 May, 2017. Transport ministers from over 50 countries are meeting at the International Transport Forum in Leipzig, Germany, from 31 May until 2 June. This year’s main issue is to find an appropriate regulatory solution to promoting innovations, such as the integration of autonomous vehicles, while ensuring the safety of road users and citizens. Software solutions provided by PTV Group help model future scenarios of our mobility and allow us to evaluate new business models, such as mobility as a service.

We can test new mobility concepts virtually. In Leipzig, PTV will present a driving simulator in which visitors can test and see for themselves what the future in an autonomous vehicle would feel like. Another highlight at the PTV Group stand allows visitors to model, simulate and plan smart cities of tomorrow using virtual reality.

For four decades, PTV Group has developed technologies for planning and optimizing traffic and transport flows. Its software is used in over 2,500 cities worldwide.

The organiser of the annual International Transport Forum is the International Transport Forum (ITF) of the OECD, which considers itself a think tank for transport policy. As host of the event, German Transport Minister Alexander Dobrindt will officially open the International Transport Forum on the first day of the fair.
