|Causeway are pleased to announce the launch of a suite of AutoCAD-based applications for traffic engineering, initially addressing lining, signage and vehicle paths.
Developed based on feedback we have identified a need for flexible, intuitive and reasonably priced products.
PDS Line - an easy to use aid to prepare road marking drawings in accordance with TSR&GD 2002. Markings are applied using a simple interface giving accurate, well presented drawings and quantity take off. All road line types are available as well as symbols, road text and hatching. Parking bays, bus stops and pedestrian crossings are all easily drawn. Markings generated are all constructed from standard AutoCAD entities, enabling the user to manually edit markings if required and pass drawings to others.
PDS Sign - a new application for the design of sign faces in accordance with TSR&GD 2002. Sign face designs can be quickly produced using a comprehensive library of sign symbols, arrows and fonts. Routines for creating roundabout and junction symbols, stacked mileages, backing boards, post and foundation calculations and sign detail annotation make this an essential tool for any highway design office.
PDS Vehicle Swept Path Analysis - this module is particularly useful to generate vehicle swept paths for junctions, access roads and car parks. Vehicle paths and body overhangs are calculated and displayed and may also be animated. The user can either 'drive' the vehicle or run it along a preset path. A standard library of vehicles is included and an editor is also provided to allow users to add their own vehicles via a wizard interface.
