With our last update Trian3DBuilder is now faster than ever before and comes with new features for OpenDrive generation and VBS Databases!
Road networks, that have been created with the Roads Module, can be exported into OpenDrive format. The data can hereby be exported into an arc/clothoid based representation for perfectly smooth curves, or alternatively into a simple point based representation. For each street all height information and the street's crossfall are exported as polynomials.
For each crossing the incoming road's lanes are connected internally according to the road settings. For each lane the user may define the direction in which the traffic may turn and thus create e.g. a left turning lane.
Furthermore signals like traffic signs and lights can be assigned to roads and crossings. Those are also exported to OpenDrive and allow the AI to act realistically.
In parallel to the road network streetcar rails are also exported to OpenDrive. For this task additional lane types have been introduced. Besides normal rails waiting areas and dummy lanes, that can only be used by cars, are supported.
