Autodesk is proud to be a 2016 AASHTO Capitol Sponsor. Join us at the various AASHTO Meetings in 2016 to be a bigger part of the conversation on all modes of transportation.
AASHTO works to educate the public and key decision makers about the critical role that transportation plays in securing a good quality of life and sound economy for our nation. It is the only association that represents all modes of transportation – air, highways, public transportation, rail, and water. [Source AASHTO].
You need to design the transportation systems of the future
And we want to help you. Did you know you can model people, not just cars? Did you know that you can model travel, not just traffic?
Design in a real-world context
Autodesk® InfraWorks® 360 software is a planning and design solution that helps quickly and easily convey design intent and analysis results in a real-world, contextual environment, increasing stakeholder buy-in and team decision-making. Efficiently access and integrate data from multiple sources into a highly accurate 3D model. Automated, rich, 3D model building capability using Model Builder for InfraWorks 360, combined with cloud technology and vertically specialized functionality gives you a tool to confidently envision the full potential of a project. InfraWorks 360 empowers cross-functional teams to make decisions where and when needed. Use data to address the problems that concern city residents. Leverage the model to design more attractive, economical and sustainable transportation
alternatives by evaluating the impact of designs to movement of buses and trains, autonomous vehicles, walking, cycling and other modes of travel using Traffic Simulation and Mobility Simulation.
Designing more complete streets
Mobility Simulation features in InfraWorks 360 allow you to study travel by modeling the total travel trip for each person. For a person that drives, the total trip includes the walking trip from the parked car to the ultimate destination.
Assess and evaluate
- Highway interchanges
- Urban streets
- Park and ride lots
- On-street parking
Mobility Simulation in InfraWorks 360 allows the analyst to model both of these options, measuring person-hours travelled and person-distance traveled, and to visualize the movements of each individual person.

Autodesk knows design, and so much more
You may know Autodesk has innovative transportation engineering design software, such as AutoCAD Civil 3D, but did you know Autodesk also offers unique solutions that can help improve workflows through the lifecycle of your projects?
Point cloud processing – Use digital capture of physical environments to create 3D models that can be the starting point for your design. With Autodesk Recap 360 you can combine 3D laser scanning with automatic registration so you can easily plan, measure, and visualize with advanced measurement. Autodesk InfraWorks 360 provides advanced tools to extract features directly from the point cloud. Use real-world, as-built data to begin your projects with context instead of a blank screen.

Transportation planning – Autodesk has the solution to help transportation planners quickly generate and evaluate multiple design alternatives in the context of the as-built environment. Use data-rich models to improve public engagement, gather feedback, and help speed the approvals process.

Traffic and mobility simulation – Autodesk InfraWorks 360 includes traffic and mobility simulation tools that give you the power to model all modes of transportation from traffic to people through all phases of a trip. Quantify the performance & economic benefit of your transportation network designs. Assess corridor performance, intersection traffic operations, park-and-ride facility sites, bus terminal locations, parking alternatives, interchange configurations and more.

eConstruction – When construction project teams have the right information at the right time, work happens faster. Using different apps for plan sheet viewing, PDF markups, issue management, and file sharing leaves teams out of sync. With an Autodesk solution you can get everything in one place – and accessible on the Web, tablets and phones – to always stay current and connected.
