AutoTURN is timesaving computer-aided swept path analysis software for simulating and evaluating the safety and ease of vehicle manoeuvres for junctions, roundabouts, bus terminals, loading bays, or any on/off street assignments involving access, clearance and manoeuvrability checks.
It includes a comprehensive vehicle library and sophisticated reporting features.
Each new version that comes out makes AutoTURN simpler to use.
Ultimately, the software worked great.
Place Adaptive Vehicle Simulations
Place adaptive simulations either centred or offset left/right with smooth turning transitions on user-drawn paths made from lines, arcs, polylines, AutoCAD® Civil 3D® alignments or complex chains. Linking with geometry allow these simulations to adapt to grip-edits made to their paths.
Run Animation with InVision Data Management
Control vehicle simulation playback through the new Run Animation feature. Plus, InVision data can now be managed with the ability to pick and choose the vehicle simulations in your drawing required for presentations.
Cargo Loads for specialised Transportation Systems
Easily represent an oversize or wide load situation by having the cargo drawn for a vehicle simulation and its envelope combined with the vehicle body envelope. Define the cargo size and limiting factors for vehicle configurations to work within set industry standards.
Conflict Analysis and Regenerate Simulation
Perform vehicle conflict analysis and receive real-time visual feedback on any simulation path obstructions. AutoTURN also comes with the ability to regenerate an existing simulation to account for conflicts that occur after path obstacles have been added, removed, or modified.
Telescoping Trailor Functionality
Along with the addition of logging trucks to the vehicle library, AutoTURN now has the ability to handle a telescoping trailer for simulating logging vehicles. Test designs for efficiency and safety by assessing rear overhang of logs as they swing out in a corner turn.
Generate Independent Paths
You now have the ability to continue generating new independent vehicle paths from one main simulation path. Save even more time as you explore different maneuvers from the last point of a simulation rather than having to recreate the prior path in its entirety.
More Options for Simulations
With AutoTURN, you can now force a straight line simulation for a vehicle traveling along an arc path. This gives you more options for performing different maneuvers (i.e. lane changes) together in a single and longer vehicle simulation.
AutoTURN SmartPath Tools
Innovative SmartPath tools allow the generation of continuous vehicle paths with four interactive drive modes using engineering algorithms for realistic results.
Oversteer Corner Path
Realistically evaluate the movement of articulated vehicles during turning manoeuvres. Steer a vehicle wide enough so that the trailing unit does not encroach on kerbs, pavements or other vehicles.
Realistic Vehicle Plan Views
With AutoTURN, you can use different vehicle plan views, showing greater vehicle detail, in the simulations to increase the realism and quality of presentations.
Produce vehicle simulations by simply selecting a roadway element such as a kerb or pavement edge and entering an offset distance to generate an optimum vehicle path while maintaining a constant clearance from the element.
