Mobility Concept for Marzahn-Hellersdorf

<p>The VMZ Berlin develops an integrated traffic concept for the district Marzahn-Hellersdorf. On the basis of a comprehensive analysis, deficits and potentials of the transport systems are to be identified. With regard to the structural development of the district, possible courses of action for the future design of the mobility of residents and commuters will be developed.</p>

Traffic Modelling

<p><p>Forecasts cannot be measured. Traffic models reproduce decisions made by users, as they are to be expected in particular under changing conditions (e.g. growth of the city). With the help of transport modelling, the decision-makers can check the effects of various transport policy measures ex ante on the basis of transport models and make precise decisions based on these (e.g. shortening the intervals between trains).</p></p>


MEISTER aims to optimise the use of urban infrastructure by linking charging and parking services. An interoperable platform and services for reserving and paying for charging processes will be implemented.

MMI Luxembourg

Together with the project partner HaCon, VMZ has realized a multimodal information platform for Luxembourg. As the overall project manager, VMZ closely accompanied the project and supplied components for dynamic MIV routing, route monitoring and an application for managing traffic messages. Whether bicycle, bus, train, tram, car or your own two feet – all modes find their place in the planner. The new app makes it possible to track both public transport and the situation in road traffic in real time and to design a personalized travel chain.

Mobility Display SIEMENS Berlin

Seven mobility displays give employees and visitors at SIEMENS location Berlin-Spandau all transportation options at a glance: They can find out about the traffic situation on Berlin’s streets, construction sites and disruptions, public transport departure times, walking routes to nearby stations and carsharing options.

Mobility Display BER Airport

Thanks to 50 Mobility Monitor displays at BER airport, travellers arriving can quickly find their way around. In terminals T1 and T2 as well as T5, monitors provide information about public transport, current traffic situation, car sharing options and traffic disruptions. VMZ realised and operates the displays on behalf of FBB Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH.

Traffic information for rbb88.8

rbb88.8 has deep roots in the city and the region. Traffic updates are a regular part of the program: the more current and detailed, the better. On weekdays the producers give updates live several times per hour from Berlin’s Traffic Information Center. The VMZ prepares the content: the current traffic situation in the city, information on construction, blockages, and events, public transport info, and the newest tweets about the current traffic situation.

Charging Station Location Concept Berlin

Electric carsharing is booming in Berlin, and the VMZ is in the thick of it. Users and carsharing providers demand a dense charging station network, and charging station providers want high station usage. To meet both needs, we determined how best to expand the charging station network with a new model-supported procedure which can also help carsharing providers optimize their offers.

Goodbye traffic jams: A Concept for the LISA Corridor East.

Goodbye traffic jams: A Concept for the LISA Corridor East. It’s best to avoid traffic congestion on motorways with a wide detour. LISA (trans-province information and strategy management) makes this possible. The VMZ developed a framework which now informs LISA for wide stretches of Eastern Germany. Based on our in-house procedure for network-wide strategic planning, the concept defines detour strategies and makes prognoses for technical and organizational implementation.

PlaG-Inn: Planning Tool for the E-Charging Network

Electromobility scores when Plug’nDrive functions well. The most important prerequisite is a need-tailored charging infrastructure. The federally-funded PlaG-Inn project researched how to efficiently build and extend a charging network geographically in Berlin. The VMZ developed a planning tool for the project together on a team with the German Aerospace Center (DLR). It visualizes geographical centers of current and future demand in five scenarios for three user groups.
