Features & Benefits
Ease of use
Autopath is so easy to use that no
training should be required. User
are up and running in a matter of
Easy Drive
Easy Drive is an interactive
method of defining the vehicle
path. Besides an easy input this
method includes realistic
simulation because it considers
parameters such as vehicle
speed, wheel turning speed and
the superelevation of the road.
editing of
vehicle path
Vehicle path can be
easily and intuitively
controlled by moving
the path grips. This way
you can easily fine tune vehicle
path to see whether the vehicle
will be able to pass through a
given set of constraints.
Predictive turning
Forward and reverse turn
predictions when using
EasyDrive helps you to precisely
predict a vehicle's movement
especially where a vehicle path is
narrowed by obstacles.
Create custom vehicles
with an easy to use interface
Vertical clearence is
used to check a
vehicles clearance for
things such as parking
garages, bridges and
Various Driving
You can define vehicle path in a
variety of ways. In addition to
EasyDrive (interactive method) a
vehicle can also follow a Civil 3D
alignment or even a polyline. You
can select whether the front or
rear vehicle axis will follow given
From 1998, when the first
version was officially released,
Autopath has gained a
number of satisfied users in
Germany, Austria, United
States, Australia, New
Zealand, Russia, Poland, etc.
In some cases the easiest way to
define a vehicle path is by manual
steering. This means that the
vehicle can be steered using either
the mouse pointer or keyboard.
You can increase/decrease vehicle
speed or change the vehicle type
at any given moment.
You also have the option to drive
a vehicle in reverse for checking
parking and turning maneuvers.
Custom Vehicle
Create custom vehicles with an
easy to use interface. Included in
the product are vehicle libraries
such as AASHTO and others that

consist of airplanes, trucks,
trailers, cars. There is no extra
cost for additional vehicles.
representation of
the analysis results
Proven algorithms
All calculations in Autopath are
based on algorithms of "CGS
Turning curves" software which
has been used for more than 10
years by road designers all over
the world.
Graphically represent the analysis
results using different reports or
graphics. Users can draw the
vehicle outer edges, tire and axis
trails in addition to hatching the
swept path areas. Graph the
vehicle tire angle to accurately
show the steering of the vehicle
along a given path.
