Abstract

The paper presented the PRT (Personal Rapid Transit) control and traffic management system. The genesis of the use of information systems for control and PRT traffic management was made. The concept of the PRT system was defined, a review of these systems and their structure was carried out. The mechanical and ergonomic systems of PRT vehicles have been described. The chassis structure and the ergonomics of the PRT vehicle cabs have been characterized. The process of estimating traffic conditions and simulations of exemplary PRT vehicles have been described. An analysis of the PRT system was carried out, the purpose of which is to determine the optimal number of PRT stations guaranteeing optimal service provision, in terms of the demand for PRT services. The stages of designing the PRT circulation system for districts on the outskirts of the city are illustrated. The OPTIMAL program tool (C-CAD) has been used.
