State-of-the-art Software For Roadway Intersection Planning And Design
NEXUS® is the ultimate intersection design solution for new construction and rehabilitation projects offering vehicle operations, geometric design, and safety performances together in one comprehensive package. With 65% savings in overall design costs, NEXUS allows for the creation and evaluation of intersection concepts in a fraction of the time compared to traditional or manual computer-aided drafting and designing. Using the Vehicle Envelope Method® (U.S. Patent No. 8,650,004) of design, NEXUS incorporates all the key elements in the intersection design process including design vehicles, capacity conditions, sight lines, conflict points, and conceptual grading – providing instant feedback so engineers can quickly and easily produce highly effective and safety oriented intersection layouts.
- Addresses special constraints and layout challenges with various types of circular and non-circular roundabouts.
- Complex projects get less complicated with easy 3D modeling and visualizations.
Take the complicated calculations out of the equation
AutoTURN does the math for you. Eliminate the challenges of calculating curves and modeling vehicles with different steering capabilities. Using a vehicle of your choice, AutoTURN will compute the space requirements and show you the results, so you can focus on the important safety and operational components of your design.
Boost productivity and explore the best design options
Save time and make better decisions. Quickly create simulations and check multiple maneuvers for all vehicles accessing the site. Smart tools and automated processes help increase productivity and reduce human errors. Great for discovering the best design option or modeling more complex scenarios such as traffic calming and site circulation analysis.
Tackle complex urban design and complete streets projects
Embrace the future of urban design. With AutoTURN Pro, you can simulate the movement and turning requirements of a variety of bicycle types to validate your design is safe for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists alike..
Test your design with a vast array of vehicles
AutoTURN Pro includes over 1300 vehicles in its manufacturer-specific and standard design vehicle libraries, so you can run a robust swept path analysis. Quickly search by library name and apply filters to define results. You can also set custom vehicle groups that match your country or local area design.
Visualize the impact in 3D
Run 3D simulations to check for potential conflicts with terrain and infrastructure or for presentation purposes. With AutoTURN Pro you can also easily illustrate, vehicle paths maneuvering forward and backward..
Review your results with quality diagnostic tools
The automated tools ensure your design aligns with the guidelines and safety requirements of local transportation agencies. You can also readily check any manually produced simulations to ensure key parameters meet design criteria. Produce detailed reports so that reviews can be done by peers or others—meaning you can get a quicker stamp of approval on your design..
NEXUS Intersections Features
Work With Intersection Leg Templates
Visualize different design alternatives faster by using pre-defined leg templates. With over 450 templates to choose from, engineers can easily filter through the entire library to work with applicable templates..
Autocad® Civil 3d® Integration
NEXUS can now generate Autodesk® AutoCAD® Civil 3D® surfaces, vertical, and horizontal alignments. Civil 3D objects (such as corridors) are updated dynamically using the NEXUS grading model.
