VEHICLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE PERSONAL RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS
The paper presents a class of vehicle dispatching policies predicated on the assumption that vehicle travel costs and passenger waiting costs can be related. The dispatching policies vary as the functions chosen to model passenger waiting costs vary. The computer execution time of each policy in family of policies is most reasonable and thus policies will handle systems with large demands. The dispatching policies are founded on the results of the two-station models also contained in this work. Two-station model has presented a major result for batch service queues--namely the presentation of the optimal policy for batch service queues with nonlinear customer waiting costs.
