From research to practice

Students from the Nottingham Trent University visited the PTV headquarters.

We recently hosted students from Nottingham Trent University at our head office. They came to Karlsruhe to learn more about interesting examples of best practice and exciting infrastructure projects.

Tobias Kretz, Product Manager PTV Viswalk, and Kristina Stifter, Head of Global Communications at PTV Group, gave some insights into PTV’s wide range of services.

Moreover, they presented interesting projects from the region, such as studies on the design of mobility in the new Black Forest Nature Reserve, the RegioMove research project focussing on an integrated, intermodal mobility platform for all transport modes, Project Breathable City​ Strasbourg etc.

One of the highlights was to experience virtual reality in the field of traffic simulation by moving through the cyberspace (holodeck) as a pedestrian.

At the end of the event, Kristina Stifter said: “It was once again a pleasure for us to be able to inspire young people to get involved in the exciting world of mobility.”
