Bosch and PTV Group: Alliance for Better Air
- Bosch emissions’ calculation integrated in PTV traffic simulation software.
- Effects of traffic control measures become visible immediately.
- Many cities in Europe and around the world are struggling with air quality problems
Bosch and PTV Group, the global market leader for mobility and transportation software, are joining forces to further improve air quality and reduce traffic-related emissions in cities. The new partnership brings together Bosch’s know-how in measuring, modeling, and analyzing air quality data with PTV’s expertise in traffic planning and simulation. This partnership will provide cities with the right tools to reconcile mobility and better air in the best possible way. While many cities in Europe and around the world are struggling with air pollution, the two companies could help well over 2,000 potential customers in more than 120 countries with their innovative solution.
Precise Data for Efficient Traffic Management
The first outcome of the cooperation has already been implemented. Precise emissions data by Bosch is now available in the traffic simulation software PTV Vissim. Bosch generates this data on its cloud-based Air Quality platform, based on detailed traffic data. In PTV Vissim, city and traffic planners can then immediately see how different traffic measures, such as adapted signal control, will affect vehicle emissions and air quality.
