Project Partners

Officially, we as TraffGo HT are not directly participating in PESOS, but our co-operation partner Germanischer Lloyd AG and our customers (Meyerwerft, FSG) are working on the project, which is lead by the workgroup Physics of Transport and Traffic. Germanys Ministry of Traffic and Housing (BMVBW) has a fundamental interest in the project.
After PESOS ist completed, the essential results will be encorporated into our simulation programs PedGo and AENEAS. This is why we accompany the project.
