The ROMAG system of magnetically guiding and propelling vehicles using ordinary-temperature linear electric motors which combine levitation, thrust, guidance, and dynamic active suspension to achieve a high ratio of payload to vehicle weight is described. The vehicle requires low-cost passive track and provides a high degree of passenger ride comfort. it is applicable for low-cost low-speed "people-mover" vehicles as well as high-speed interurban transport systems.
