Bicycle Swept Path Analysis Included in New Release of Transoft Solutions' AutoTURN PRO
RICHMOND, British Columbia, Mar. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Transoft Solutions Inc., developers of transportation engineering design 
software, has announced the release of the latest version of the AutoTURN(TM) 
suite of products with new and enhanced features. 

Urban planners and engineers have long relied on Transoft Solution's AutoTURN 
when designing transportation projects. Whether used for new development 
projects, rehabilitation schemes or temporary traffic management plans, the 
accuracy and the reliability of the AutoTURN software, as well as its 
user-friendly functionality, has made it the standard tool for swept path 
analysis. Transoft Solutions' latest release of AutoTURN Pro includes the 
ability to analyze the swept paths of a variety of bicycles. This means 
engineers can reduce guesswork and design errors as they visualize and create a 
transportation network that includes cycling lanes and facilities. 

"There is greater demand for cities to implement active transportation 
initiatives including safe cycling and walking networks to reduce traffic 
congestion and to become more sustainable. In our latest release, we took into 
consideration the need for transportation professionals to design safe 
infrastructure for both vehicles and bicycles," said Chris Milne, VP Software 
Development, Transoft Solutions.  

The industry-leading vehicle swept path analysis and turn simulation software, 
AutoTURN and AutoTURN Pro, new capabilities includes:

- Simulate bicycle and scooter movements – use a library of different cycle 
types (e.g. bikes with trailers, recumbent cycles, scooters) to simulate their 
movements and ensure projects safely accommodate the turning space required. 
- Solve possible drive paths based on available space – reduce the guess work 
by using the Intellipath tool to calculate the maximum allowable speeds for 
specific turns. 
- Detect vehicle conflicts with terrain and structures in 3D – highlight 
potential conflicts between vehicles and terrain or overhead obstructions. 
- Access an expanded library of manufacturer and standard vehicles – test 
designs with various new speciality manufacturer vehicles such as forklifts, 
limousines, construction cranes, fire trucks, and tanker trailers. 
- Conduct informed reviews of simulations – review simulations by checking 
various parameters such as speed, steering, and proximity to potential
