Company Pedestrians Ships R&D


Our co-operation partners help us to widen our knowledge and to improve our sales. You will find project references in the according parts of our homepage. The following list shows our project partners in alphabetical order.

Bergische Universität Wuppertal

We co-operate with the University of Wuppertal (Prof. Dr. Klingsch) in order to compare different evacuation simulation software available on the market. We also helped initating the start of the German "Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics Network".
Within joined research projects, we exchange and discuss new information and results.


As a maritime classification society, DNV GL operates world wide and helps us to support and sell our software AENEAS. On the other hand, DNV GL is the only classification society in the world, which can offer evacuation analyses according to the IMO regulations with its own software. Numerous national and international (Finland, Australia, Senegal) projects have shown the success of this co-operation.

FjordConsult AS

FjordConsult was founded in 2004 by the brothers Aasmund und Thor Ivar Hellesoy. Both have studied naval architecture and have been working in the maritime industry. Aasmund Hellesoy helped to establish the maritime guideline on evacuation simulations (MSC/Circ.1033) and has supported us since the research project BYPASS, so he has been involved in the development of AENEAS' since the first hour.

Research Centre Jülich

Within the Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics Network and the RiMEA-Project there is a cooperation with the Research Centre Jülich, especially with Prof. Dr. Armin Seyfried (Homepage). With regard to our field of activity the Research Centre Jülich is skilled in numerical simulations of fire spread (CFD), parallel algorithms and supercomputing.

IB Waldau

We met Nathalie Waldau during our work at the university, where she was a member of the work group Physics of Transport and Traffic lead by Prof. Dr. Michael Schreckenberg. As an architect specialized in evacuation simulations she has the know-how concerning preventive fire safety engineering and its regulations. In September 2005 she organized the third PED conference in Vienna. Since then, she is internationally known for her expertise in this field.

Last-Mile Evacuation Collaboration

Within the Last-Mile research project, we co-operate with various project partners. Following the "German Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System" (GITEWS), the Last-Mile project covers the "last mile" the evacuated persons will have to travel, when a tsunami warning is issued.
The following partners work on the project:

United Nations University
Dr. Birkmann
Franzius Institut der Leibniz Universität Hannover
Prof. Dr. Ing. Schlurmann
Universität Würzburg
Univ. Prof. Dr. rer. nat. habil. Dech
TU Berlin
Univ. Prof. Dr. Nagel
TraffGo HT GmbH
Dr. Klüpfel
Prof. Dr. Siegert
Prof Dr. Hirzinger
Universität Bonn
Prof. Dr. Klein

RiMEA Project

The goal of the RiMEA project is to develop a guideline for the application of microscopic evacuation simulations. The way it is organized is possibly unique and we are proud for having initialized it. About 50 companies, societies and institutions for fire safety engineering are part of this project and help to establish the guideline.
We invite you sincerely to participate. Detailed information can be found on the projects homepage (, however, the project language is German.

Technische Universität Berlin (Berlin Institute of Technology)

The department of Transport Systems Planning and Transport Telematics (Prof. Dr. Nagel) of the Berlin Institute of Technology is a project partner in the research project Last-Mile-evacuation. In a common work package we simulate the evacuation of Padang, Sumatra, Indonesia in case of hazards of tsunami waves.

University of Cologne

Prof. Dr. Schadschneider (Homepage) analyzes the basic principles of cellular automata for the simulation of pedestrian traffic and evacuation simulations. Numerous publications (especially with Ansgar Kirchner and Andreas Schadschneider) indicate the intensive collaboration. An overview of our publications is available in the category publications.

University Duisburg-Essen

Since TraffGo was founded out of the work group Physics of Transport and Traffic, we keep a close contact to Prof. Dr. Schreckenberg and his students. We accompany the research projects following BYPASS and are therefore kept up to date.
