Published on Thursday 11th December 2008
ABSTRACT of paper presented at the APM-ATS Conference in 2008
PRT, Personal Rapid Transit, is a transportation concept with small vehicles on a low weight structure, that combines many of the best aspects of today’s urban public transport, and packages them together with unparalleled service and lower total cost of ownership. Vectus, with operations in Korea and Sweden, is at the forefront of PRT technology. Vectus has built a PRT test track in Sweden for validation of the system, and for obtaining safety approval. For the test-track, in-track linear motors are used powered by standard industry inverters combined with an in-house control concept. The system and its operational experiences are described.
