Emerging Personal Rapid Transit Technologies Introduction, State of the Art, Applications

Abstract

Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) is a novel form of fully automated rail-based public transportation which will become commercially available in the near future. With PRT up to 6 persons or light freight travel in small, individually controlled and electrically driven vehicles on a network of narrow guideways. The vehicles are available on demand and 24h a day. Any PRT network destination can be reached directly, in a private atmosphere and without intermediate stops or transfers.
