dc.description.abstractThis analysis of "people mover" technologies addresses the comparative advantages and disadvantages of several fixed guideway transportation systems. The project was initiated as one part of an evaluation of transportation needs for the Georgia Institute of Technology. Manufacturers of people mover systems were asked to respond to a technical questionnaire with information describing their systems. Fifteen vendors replied, formally proposing 20 different systems for evaluation. Information from their responses was extracted and either entered into matrices of technical data or summarized and explained in descriptions of their systems. The report concludes that Personal Rapid Transit technology is most appropriate for further research, development, and eventual deployment for service on Tech's campus. The next most appropriate selection is the mass transit system supplied by Aeromovel. All other technologies are recommended with lesser degrees of appropriateness.en_US
