Traffic Data Management

You need reliable data on traffic conditions? The VMZ prepares tailored traffic data and also integrates its own collected data with data from external sources. Our services range from planning and management of local sensors to data collection, acquisition, selection, harmonization, and quality control, and user-tailored analysis, provision, and archival.

Disruption Management

What to do when traffic and transportation flows are interrupted? It’s best to be prepared with alternative routes on hand. The VMZ helps by determining the risk for incidents and breakdowns on your transportation network and developing reliable action plans – for single areas or the whole network. We show you whether and where you need to improve your information system and implement software which will put every involved control center in the position to react quickly, safely, and in a coordinated manner.

Transportation Solutions for Big Events.

The success of an event begins with visitors’ arrival. The VMZ creates intermodal transportation concepts for your large event and guides you in implementing them: We determine daily time-based demand for public transport and traffic volumes, determine the modal split, simulate the traffic distribution and check capacities. On this basis we then plan arrival and departure routes, determine the demand for bus and car parking spots, and develop transportation organization and infrastructure measures. On request we also provide evaluation and recommendations for further improvement for the next event.

Strategies for E-Mobility

<p>Electromobility is a critical building block in the transportation revolution. VMZ helps you estimate the opportunities: Where is there concrete potential for your municipality, your city, or your region? What is the current status of charging infrastructure and where is there a need for expanding it? How can we make better use of existing infrastructure? Which locations are suitable for increasing capacities?</p>

VMZ Mobility Platform

Info services on mobility alternatives are most useful for the user when they link as many possible offerings from diverse providers in real-time. Like the well-tested platform by VMZ. We integrate data from many different sources in our API: Carsharing, bikesharing, e-scootersharing, car charging stations, long-distance buses, taxis, ridesharing organizers and other services. A further advantage: we already integrated important, Germany-wide providers.

Park Smarter: city2.e

Finding a parking spot in the inner city takes time and energy. City2.e, funded by the German national government, investigates how we can improve parking: Parking sensors report free spaces, which are then shown in an app. The VMZ was responsible for the mobility platform the routing services.

EU Project Streetlife

For the EU Commission’s research area ‚Steering towards Green and Perceptive Mobility of the Future’, project partners created an app for urban bikers. The VMZ developed the bike routing for the project. We determined high risk areas for accidents and gave app users an ‘avoid high accident areas’ option in their route planning.

Traffic Situation Map for Cities

People on the move in cities need continuous access to current traffic information. For this purpose, many cities run traffic sensors along their major roads. VMZ fills gaps in the detected road network with floating car data from different providers and combines all data to provide accurate traffic situation and travel times. The result: A public traffic situation map showing conditions across the road network in real-time.

Mobility Display at Federal Ministry of Transport

Four mobility displays give employees and visitors at the Federal Ministry of Transportation and Digital Infrastructure 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.
