Project Description

Driverless wire Guided PRT

THE CUBE™

TYPE: Road

SPECS

DESCRIPTION

The Cube takes its origins from the Autonomous TDI Vectus system but has been developed to operate at ground level on tyres, accommodating up to 10 people each. The obvious benefits in doing this are reduced capital costs and the flexibility of changing routes with minimal fuss. All Cubes are identical, interchangeable, and self-powered from a lithium-ion power pack located beneath the pod floor.

Electronic four-wheel steering ensures precise manoeuvring and docking in both directions without the need for turning circles at each end of the route, which makes the whole system extremely space efficient. The system is designed to eventually be fully autonomous, however until the safety of this is proven and set up costs reduced the Cube currently operates on a wire guidance system that has a proven track record.

The Cube can be used as an individual pod or platooned together at peak times to make a virtual train moving larger numbers as and when required.

Vehicles can be open or fully enclosed against the weather with electrically powered doors for easy access. Wheelchairs can also be accommodated.

The system is ideal for short haul last mile shuttle services or transporting passengers between car parks, stations, visitor attractions and other transport modes.
