Friday, 7th Aug 2015

Transcore utilises the latest version of AutoTURN 9.0 to provide cutting edge analysis and technical advice for the layout and design of roads, intersections, car parks and ramps.

AutoTURN is the vehicle swept path analysis software of choice for transportation engineers, architects, and planners worldwide. Used in over 120 countries AutoTURN is used to confidently analyze road and site design projects including intersections, roundabouts, bus terminals, loading bays, parking lots or any on/off-street assignments involving vehicle access checks, clearances, and swept path maneuvers.

Transcore has undertaken advanced swept path analysis on many client projects ranging from small, private residential or mixed use development basement car parks to large shopping centre and airport car parks. A variety of the most commonly used vehicle types are included in the Transcore software library including cars, vans and multiple trucks from small rigid trucks to large road trains. Transcore can also custom create model vehicles to specification.

The following videos show examples of turn path analysis undertaken by Transcore for a 19m semi trailer reversing into a loading dock, and a passenger car reverse parking in a proposed development car park.
