Autodesk and Autoturn

Autodesk recently launched Vehicle Tracking... which is add in software  to AutoCAD which  designs your vehicle movement. Ideal for figuring out the vehicle movement around your building such as fire truck, ambulance and delivery vehicle movement.

Integrated swept path analysis software

Vehicle Tracking software is a comprehensive transportation analysis and design solution for vehicle swept path analysis. The software enables engineers, designers, and planners at government agencies and engineering consulting firms to predictably evaluate vehicle movements on transportation or site design projects.

Autoturn did release a version for Revit "Autoturn for Revit" but I haven't seen it in action yet.

Anyway.. I just found out Autodesk bought AutoTrack earlier this year.... I guess I'm out of the loop and missed that one!

Autodesk have re-branded it and it's now called VEHICLE TRACKING   Hmmmm I think would have called it something a little more impressive, they should have asked the guys over at Autodesk Labs to come up with the name. thy would have come up with something cool like "Hyperdrive" or "Millennium Falcon or "Executor" ... something cool like that.

Earlier this year we bought a copy of Autoturn so I'm interested to see how this is going to change things with Transoft. Maybe Autodesk will roll "Vehicle Tracking" into a Suite.

Stay tuned... I'm sure this will develop further.



  1. I hear if you buddy up with the tech folks at Transoft (AutoTURN) you can get a Millenium Falcon equivalent simulation model to run with the software in CAD ^_~
