The software is available as a 30-day free trial on the Autodesk Vehicle Tracking page.
What is Vehicle Tracking?
Integrated Swept Path Analysis Software
Autodesk Vehicle Tracking (previously known as AutoTrack) 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.
Integrate planning and design within an AutoCAD environment
Predictably evaluate the movements of steered vehicles, light rail vehicles, and aircraft, as well as design parking lots and intersection designs using analysis and simulation tools that are integrated with Autodesk software including AutoCAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D, AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Plant 3D, AutoCAD Map 3D, and AutoCAD Utility Design software.
Connect the analysis and design processes and enable the reuse of preliminary design work in the detail design phase. Consider safety factors, such as sight lines based on standard design speeds, more easily and interactively.
Speed planning and design processes
Optimize project performance in less time than disparate solutions using real-time operational analysis. Expedite the preliminary design phase with easy-to-use real-time simulation and drag-and-drop tools. Create vehicle swept paths that can be saved and referred to later to maintain up-to-date animations, reduce rework, and save time.
Evaluate alternative 3D models faster and optimize designs
Quickly and easily explore alternative design solutions with the productions of multiple layout options that adapt automatically to the dynamic 3D model in AutoCAD Civil 3D. Evaluate safety and standards compliance for parking lot design, refuse and emergency vehicle access and loading bay access to help meet permitting requirements. Easily analyze vertical clearance, vertical grades and crossfalls for vehicle access using 3D proposed surface models.
