PTV Group secures Qatar road management work

DOHA, June 27, 2019

PTV Group, a market leader in traffic and logistics software solutions, said it has been appointed as a sub-contractor to the consortium selected by Qatar's Ashghal for its project to design, build and implement an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) software solution for the Roads Management Centre (RMC).

The consortium includes Swarco and KBAS who will be responsible for delivering the project with other sub-contractors Transpo Group, Qmic and Mannai Trading Company, said a statement from the PTV Group.

The ITS software solution will seamlessly integrate all the currently separate road sub-systems making RMC the central hub of all monitoring, operation and management within Qatar.
As per the deal, PTV Group will provide software for micro simulation and traffic forecasting. The company will also collect available GPS data and extract speeds that can be used for simulation and real-time and mid-term forecasts, for the whole Qatar network.

PTV software will also be used to calculate Estimated Time of Arrivals (ETA) of public transport services at stops, as well as transfer alerts on stops where transfer time exceeds given threshold, due to delays, said the statement.

Software programmes that will be used for this project are PTV Optima, PTV Visum and PTV Vissim, it added.
On the win, Managing Director (Mena) Andrea Petti said: "We are proud to be part of this prestigious project. Our software programmes offer an extensive range of dedicated features and detailed modelling possibilities."

"We will implement real-time model-based solutions and microsimulation modelling to assist in managing and monitoring the roads under the responsibility of the Roads Management Centre (RMC)," stated Petti.

"We will deliver this with the highest standards of efficiency, keeping in mind the long-terms goals of RMC for World Cup in 2022 and, more importantly, in line with Qatar Vision 2030," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
