Traffic Situation Analysis Spreepark

A master plan will clarify how Berlin’s attractive Spreepark waterfront area should be used in the future. A traffic concept developed by the VMZ is a core element: The VMZ analysed the existing traffic situation, determined future visitor and economic traffic volumes, and created detailed development concepts.

Traffic Research for Stone Brewing

A brewery, factory store and large restaurant for 1,200 guests – Californian company Stone Brewing’s first step into Europe was a major project. For its headquarters, Stone asked the VMZ to research expected industrial and tourist traffic and the necessary measures to manage it all smoothly.

Residential Noise Maps

Every five years the EU Commission requires new residential noise maps. Brandenburg province entrusted VMZ experts with Level 3 mapping. The result: Graphs and data tables as well as noise maps which fulfill all the requirements of the EU and the German Federal Immission Control Act, giving a reliable basis for provincial-level planning.

More Speed Limit 30

In its Urban Development Plan for Transportation, Berlin’s city government decided to introduce a 30km/h speed limit on more street segments. Together with a city working group, the VMZ researched which street segments were good candidates for speed limit 30 during the day or at night according to safety, noise and air pollution considerations.

Analysis Module for Sitraffic Concert

Sitraffic Concert is a Siemens’ software which allows traffic control centers to visualize and influence their traffic spaces. The VMZ is developing a new module which calculates and visualizes in real-time causal relationships between public transport delays, traffic volumes, construction sites, road closures and other factors.

Evaluation UVM Potsdam

With its ‘Environment- Oriented Traffic Management’ (UVM), Brandenburg’s capital city aims to reduce air pollution levels by facilitating a continuous traffic flow. The VMZ configured an IMMIS Simulation system to determine the effect of flow-interrupting traffic light configurations on air and traffic quality.


At Duisburg Port truck drivers can find their way to the right dock every time. Helping them is a Smartphone App developed by VMZ and Siemens. It provides drivers, logistics providers and the terminal operator with GPS-based dynamic data on travel times, routes and destinations, even in the case that times and routes become modified.

Traffic Detection AVUS Site

The AVUS is the most important traffic hub on the way to Berlin. Construction here requires removing traffic sensors. The VMZ planned, implemented and managed a suitable replacement so that Berliners and visitors could still remain informed about the current traffic situation.

Renovation of Mariendorf Gas Works

An old gas works is being transformed into a new industrial area for Berlin. The GASAG utility company contracted the VMZ to investigate how to ensure smooth-flowing traffic even when the industrial area is running at full capacity. The result: Differentiated scenarios for future traffic volumes confirmed the project’s feasibility – and made recommendations for concrete measures.

Extended Urban Development Plan Potsdam

Potsdam is growing, and to keep up, the city administration prepared an urban development plan in the area of transportation. Yet the public and politicians wanted more – above all on the question of Modal Split and regarding the plan’s Scenario for Sustainable Mobility. VMZ updated and deepened the existing plan on the basis of detailed analyses, assessment and new scenarios.
