We are excited to announce our series of AutoTURN Tips webinars for European, Middle Eastern and African engineering community. These straight-to-the-point presentations (20-30 min) will provide software tips and useful tricks for your daily swept path analysis tasks.
For March’s AutoTURN Tips webinar, we will review the SmartPath tools and how to use them most effectively. The SmartPath tools are the easiest way to generate a simulation as they enable you to control, or drive, the vehicle using your cursor. They also incorporate speed, super-elevation, lateral friction and turn radius algorithms for realistic results. This webinar includes:
- Benefits of the SmartPath Tools – How SmartPath tools are more flexible than traditional methods of vehicle swept path analysis.
- Using SmartPath Tools:
- ArcPath – How to generate vehicle movements using your mouse to steer the vehicle while simultaneously analyzing its envelopes.
- CornerPath – How to take advantage of existing geometry in the drawing to help generate movements by aligning the vehicle with them. You can also input the turn radius and the amount of turn sweep.
Oversteer CornerPath – How to produce oversteer manoeuvres for larger vehicles that require extra space to execute turns, and how to define the entry and exit tangent offsets
