AutoTURN Showcase Video

In the past, designers used plastic turning templates to evaluate vehicle turning paths. While this approach was sound it didn't provide designers with much flexibility.

AutoTURN® changed the way engineers checked vehicle swept paths when it launched over 20 years ago. With its powerful yet easy to use tools, the software lets designers perform turning path analyses with much greater efficiency and accuracy, translating to lower project costs and shorter timelines.

AutoTURN gives designers peace of mind whether they choose to evaluate vehicle movements along a predefined path or use SmartPath tools to generate a turning radius based on a vehicle's speed. Engineers can design with confidence by visualizing the changes to a vehicle's turning characteristics and instantly see its impact on the swept path envelope.

AutoTURN has evolved to become the only solution that lets designers generate 3D swept path envelopes -- useful in evaluating ground and overhead conflicts. This proprietary technology is highly coveted by designers because it lets them visualize the 3D swept path envelope on terrain surfaces which virtually eliminates guesswork.

Today, AutoTURN has become the world's most trusted and widely used vehicle swept path solution.

Why?

Because our engineers conduct field tests and rigorous R&D to verify AutoTURN's results. As a result, AutoTURN has been integrated into many best practices by transportation agencies around the world. In fact, most engineers understand what you mean when you ask for an 'AutoTURN' check.

Keeping your trust drives our engineers to stay current with industry needs, which is why we listen to the community.

To understand the turning characteristics of oversized and overweight vehicles, we engaged industry experts including specialized carriers, vehicle manufacturers, and wind turbine manufacturers. The findings led to new algorithms that support the intricate steering linkages between vehicle parts. Now, designers can create these vehicles to match their characteristics more easily. To date, 20 vehicles are available in the special transport library alone, adding to the overall vehicle database featuring over 500 vehicles.

AutoTURN's continued evolution has led to the enhancement of path editing tools which give users the ability to adjust a design vehicle's swept path with ease.

But AutoTURN's road to innovation never stops. Today, users will find highly advanced features...

...such as the ability to check a vertical simulation on a basic line that represents the vertical profile - useful when only a ground profile is available for checking the overhead or ground clearances.

...Users can also analyze 2D sightlines to evaluate the stopping sight distance on vertical and horizontal alignments.

...A three-dimensional sight line check is also available for evaluating on a terrain model or surface.

...A Speed Profile Report lets engineers observe the speed changes of a design vehicle along a generated path.

And these are just a few of the unique tools you'll find in AutoTURN which has quickly evolved from a basic checking tool into a comprehensive analysis and design solution for roads and highways.

What's more, AutoTURN technology powers solutions like TORUS Roundabouts and NEXUS Intersections where the vehicle swept path envelopes are used to design curb geometry.

Available for AutoCAD, MicroStation, BRICSCAD and ZWCAD, take AutoTURN for a test drive today and discover how you can benefit from the vehicle swept path solution trusted and used in over 120 countries around the world. Show less
