CABTRACK STUDIES. ESTIMATION OF CAPACITY OF CABSTOPS
Cabtrack is a proposal for a novel form of urban transport using small self-routing cabs operating under automatic control on a network of segregated tracks. The report, which is one of a series on Cabtrack studies, concentrates on one particular aspect, the operation of cabstops at which passengers board and alight from cabs. The majority of the report is concerned with a study of the layout, operation and capacity of Cabstops of a 'conventional' design in which cabs come to rest at specified points for passengers to get in and out at 'platforms'. Less conventional designs which have been studied appear to be inferior in capacity. Results are presented of a digital computer simulation of the operation of six small and medium-sized cabstops. Theoretical methods for estimated capacity are also described.
