Integrated Safety Functions in the Automatic Transport System of Oeiras

The Automatic Transport System of Oeiras (SATU-Oeiras) is a public transport system in operation since 2004, which has innovative features on both technology and environmental aspects. The present paper is focused mainly in the safety and security related aspects of this automatic transportation system. A general description of the system will be presented, covering both the transport system itself and the associated buildings, along with the fundamental design and development steps and the supervision of special entities. The essential safety and security related subsystems are analysed, as well as their integration in a supervisory context, not forgetting the human factors involved in safety and security functions. Some conclusions are drawn relatively to the system design and development and the real experience of the whole system in operation.
