Autosign incorporates a broad collection of street furniture such as road gantries, traffic lights, and many more.

When you are working on road design projects in either Civil 3D, AutoCAD or BricsCAD, Autosign can be used to draw and plan a complete road signalization and prepare the necessary documentation.

You can link Autosign signaling elements (traffic signs and road markings) to the information of your Civil 3D alignment, or any other Polyline alignment in your drawing.

Parking lot design tool enables a parametric design of parking lots. To speed up the design process, Autosign provides a wide variety of floor markings that can be assigned to the design: single lines, double lines, dashed lines, coloring, and many more. Users can either take advantage of the predefined markings that are specific to individual countries* or they can choose to define markings with custom parameters that can be saved for repeated use.

All floor markings created with Autosign can be projected on the road surface or any other surface of the DTM, creating 3D floor markings, with assigned BIM properties.

The parking lot design report is another handy feature that will provide you with a detailed table of quantities which can be either included directly in the design or exported to XLS format for further use.

Autosign creates traffic signs, portals, road markings, and other side road objects as 3D solid objects. Based on this you can easily create attractive 3D visualizations, and use the 3D model for sight analysis and safety measures.

Autosign creates traffic signs, portals, road markings, and other side road objects as BIM objects (3D solid objects with assigned Property Set data), that can be viewed and manipulated in Autodesk Navisworks and InfraWorks or exchanged through the IFC 4.2 file format to be used in any BIM-ready software solution.

Check for possible collisions (clashes) that may occur between 3D traffic signs and other 3D BIM sub-models in your project. Analyze collisions, and find the best solutions to avoid them – all within your CAD drawing.

Autosign comes with detailed and customizable reporting capabilities for every traffic sign and road marking placed in the design, including new and existing signs listing, quantities take-off, and export to Excel feature.

Autosign provides the option to import earth surface data (raster imagery and elevation data) from Google Maps directly into your CAD drawing to help visualize areas where the projects are located.

You can also export your 3D designs directly to Google Earth. In this way, you can create accurate visualizations on the exact location of the project.

Tools & Reports

Using the Horizontal or Vertical Analysis feature, you can easily and quickly simulate vehicle maneuvers and check transportability. Autopath works in AutoCAD, Civil 3D or BricsCAD environments. You can check for possible conflicts and inconsistencies of the vehicle path with other vehicles or with built objects. You can also create a steering wheel report – graphic diagram, presenting the intensity of rotation of the vehicle wheels along the vehicle path.

Vehicle movement animations in the form of trajectories that are created in CAD drawing using Autopath can be easily exported to Google Earth. There you can quickly create presentations for the client and the interested public and share your analysis results online, allowing other participants in the project to provide you with quality, up-to-date feedback.

Autopath comes with advanced reporting capabilities for each swept path analysis made. Reports include names and types of used vehicles, vehicle schematics with detailed dimensions, steering wheel turning diagram showing turning angles, turn wheels on stop sections, maximal vehicle steering angle and more. Reports can be exported to PDF and other formats.

Autopath also provides extended vehicle customisation option enabling users to customize available vehicles in libraries provided. Or create completely new vehicles with multiple axles, steering options and unlimited vehicle contour or shape definition.

Autopath provides the option to insert raster Imagery and elevation data (Google Earth Surface data) and Street View capabilities within the CAD drawing to help clients, investors, or the interested public to visualize areas where swept path analysis is taking place.

Combining such data with CAD BIM infrastructural or architectural models offers immersive visualization capabilities and great value analysis. Autopath comes with an extensive list of supported coordinate systems worldwide to enable convenient data insertion.

With the new video-recorder tool, you can easily and very quickly create animations of the swept paths and vehicle movements and instantly share them with your clients for review.

Fields of use

Civil engineering

Autopath plays a key role in verifying the transportability of all types of road design projects: on roads, intersections, roundabouts, hairpin turns, underpasses, overpasses, and similar places. With advanced tools for swept path analysis and animation, it not only accelerates the engineering design process but also enables quick checking of alternative design options, as well as safety and compliance with standards.

Special transport

Special transport services require specialized transport vehicles (semi-lowloader trailer, lowbed, mobile cranes, etc.) and tailored transport routes. Autopath includes an extensive library of specialized transport vehicles, all of which can be further customized in detail. You can design any type of vehicle outline that precisely represents the transported load. Autopath supports the use of Google Maps, Google StreetView, and OpenMaps, which is indispensable for evaluating different scenarios of transport routes. With support for all types of cranes, you can virtually plan the transport from factory, cargo port or freight terminal to the target destination.

Architecture

Autopath provides easy-to-use tools for architects and urban planners for analyzing vehicle swept paths in a CAD environment. They can perform simple vehicle maneuvers, carry out turning simulations, and identify potential limitations in the design of garages, parking spaces, intervention routes, etc. With access to a large library of vehicles, architects now have a tool for swept path analysis with which they can accurately, confidently, and independently evaluate their designs.

Intralogistics

Autopath is a proven useful tool in the process of factory design. Using it, engineers can simulate the transportation of goods on the factory lanes as well as simulate AGV’s (automated guided vehicles) or tugger trains for the transportation of goods on factory grounds. When designing warehouse-racking layouts, Autopath is used to check for possible forklift constraints, evaluate tugger trains’ transportation paths, delivery vehicles maneuvers, and similar.

Aviation

When designing airports, special care is taken to make sure that the airport can adequately service all aircraft, transport cargo, and passengers. That is why engineers, both in the design and operation phase of the airport, carry out various simulations of aircraft maneuvers, vehicle/airplane swept path analysis and check for potential collisions, thereby reducing security risks and ensuring smooth operation. To serve this purpose, Autopath comes with a predefined library of aircraft, as well as intervention and various other vehicles, and can customize vehicles if needed.

Fields of use

Civil engineering

Autopath plays a key role in verifying the transportability of all types of road design projects: on roads, intersections, roundabouts, hairpin turns, underpasses, overpasses, and similar places. With advanced tools for swept path analysis and animation, it not only accelerates the engineering design process but also enables quick checking of alternative design options, as well as safety and compliance with standards.

Special transport

Special transport services require specialized transport vehicles (semi-lowloader trailer, lowbed, mobile cranes, etc.) and tailored transport routes. Autopath includes an extensive library of specialized transport vehicles, all of which can be further customized in detail. You can design any type of vehicle outline that precisely represents the transported load. Autopath supports the use of Google Maps, Google StreetView, and OpenMaps, which is indispensable for evaluating different scenarios of transport routes. With support for all types of cranes, you can virtually plan the transport from factory, cargo port or freight terminal to the target destination.

Architecture

Autopath provides easy-to-use tools for architects and urban planners for analyzing vehicle swept paths in a CAD environment. They can perform simple vehicle maneuvers, carry out turning simulations, and identify potential limitations in the design of garages, parking spaces, intervention routes, etc. With access to a large library of vehicles, architects now have a tool for swept path analysis with which they can accurately, confidently, and independently evaluate their designs.

Industrial

Autopath is a proven useful tool in the process of factory design. Using it, engineers can simulate the transportation of goods on the factory lanes as well as simulate AGV’s (automated guided vehicles) or tugger trains for the transportation of goods on factory grounds. When designing warehouse-racking layouts, Autopath is used to check for possible forklift constraints, evaluate tugger trains’ transportation paths, delivery vehicles maneuvers, and similar.

CGS Labs solutions provide extensive BIM data support not limited to CAD platforms in use. 3D roadway, railway or river channel models are generated as detailed 3D solid objects with extended BIM metadata attached to objects, or as multiple surfaces for use with computer guided machines etc.

Plateia offers capable Property Manager for adding and changing 3D solids property data, which enables COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange) compatibility.

Plateia 3D models and attribute data can be exported to IFC files. IFC export format is regularly updated according to buildingSMART International specifications.

Clash detection tool enables designer to search for possible collisions among selected 3D solid objects within the drawing itself thus saving the time to export models and create clash analysis in third party applications outside CAD environment.

InfraCloud is point cloud automatic recognition extension to PLATEIA, roadway design solution. It is intended for automatic feature extraction from point clouds and 3D road-corridor geometry creation with its specific elements like road pavement, shoulders, curbs, ditches and similar.

Besides geometry, also attribute data is attached. InfraCloud extension reads point cloud data most common used las format. Determination of characteristic points in the point cloud is followed by semantic recognition of elements, which are best defined by these characteristic points. These elements are first represented as feature objects with associated attributes, which represent road-corridor elements.

In the next step, PLATEIA generates 3D BIM road corridor as solid object, which is a base for IFC export, open BIM file format.

InfraCloud Extension is already available. For more information, please contact us at [email protected].
