NET at PTV Group’s Innovation Day on mobility

at the Innovation Day 2019, an event on multimodality and new trends in transport planning, NET’s presentation has been awarded for the best project developed with PTV group software

NET Engineering participated in the “PTV Innovation Day Italia 2019”, the event for experts in the mobility sector by PTV group, held on April 17th in Milan, presenting the “design of a railway multimodal node with PTV Viswalk”.

Within the two sessions dedicated to “ITS and New Mobility” and “Mobility Planning“, a large panel of speakers presented in-depth studies in the field of multimodal transport, traffic macro and microsimulation, transport demand modelling, real time traffic forecasting, management and optimisation.

A specific focus has been put on the analysis of the new trends in the market, such as MaaS model (“Mobility As A Service”), sharing mobility, electric vehicles and big data.

Our eng. Caterina Barozzi has performed a very successful speech about a case study on methods for pedestrian accessibility analysis, aimed at supporting the design of intermodal nodes. The mobility demand estimation and the calibration of the pedestrian microsimulation model have been performed through accurate mobility surveys, which integrate traditional tools with video and wi-fi sensors data processing.

The study and simulation of the railway operating model, together with the characteristics of the spaces available to passengers for alternative scenarios, supported the design aimed at optimising the performance of the node as a whole.

NET’s presentation has been awarded for the best project developed with PTV group software of the Innovation Day 2019.
