Automated people mover (APM) refers to fully automated, grade separated mass transit system. These systems are utilized in relatively small areas such as airport, theme parks etc. Since beginning in 1964 these systems have gone through a series of developments and transformations which resulted in the present APM. People movers use technologies such as monorail, duorail, automated guideway transit or maglev. APMs deploy fleets of small vehicles over a track network with off-line stations, and… Expand

APM transport system concept for CPK terminals
The structure of the line connecting the main terminal and the satellite terminal is proposed, the analysis is made in terms of transport needs, rules of traffic organization are proposed, and other aspects necessary for system planning are indicated. Expand
Multibody simulation of a rope-driven automated people mover
The aim of the model was to support the design of the architecture of the suspensions and to select the proper characteristics of the elastic and damping elements in order to fulfill comfort needs of passengers and to resolve the constraints related to the layout of the vehicle and the guide-ways.
