Spanish Initiative to Develop a PRT System in the San Sebastian Technology Park

The Miramon PRT project is focused on creating an autonomous guided transport system as well as the control and the underlying traffic management. Based on the concept of PRT (Personal Rapid Transport) systems, the goal is to get a new step ahead of the current situation, eliminating the need to incorporate external elements to the existing roads and reduce the cost of the integration. This innovation is born from the union of three entities (CGI, Tecnalia-reference technology center in Spain and Europe- and Novadays -research and consulting company specializing in public services and especially transportation services-) that they intend to create the first PRT of Spanish origin and technology, making a commitment to the most innovative public transport system than currently exists. This project funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of the Spanish government has four years duration, after which it is intended to make possible the implantation of PRTs in Spain and other countries positioning itself as suppliers in the international market.
