PTV's traffic simulation software is now available for the Linux operating system (OS).
PTV Vissim Kernel is primarily aimed at users from the automotive industry.
The firm says it provides detailed and realistic simulations of the entire traffic environment, including the movements and interaction of different road users and modes of transport.
Concepts and services such as shared mobility, Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and autonomous driving can be evaluated and verified in a virtual environment, the company adds.
PTV insists these simulations play an important role in the development of advanced driver assistance systems and algorithms related to connected and autonomous vehicles.
The subscription-based solution supports high performance computing and can be integrated with other systems and co-simulation tools, such as IPG Automotive's CarMaker or Hexagon/MSC's Virtual Test Drive.
It therefore provides an ideal environment to execute large numbers of simulation runs in parallel, the company adds.
